Shackled Two Millennium

  Shackled Two Millennium

Tribal God seekers understood
Gospels desired a certain style :
In a robe, tall, slender, beaded,
Long locks curling, wearing sandals,
Their messiah gained a human form.

Now, image is twenty-one centuries old
And still held onto by man. Religion
Imprisons it's believers into a rigid faith,
When disallowed to dream, man stagnates.   
Wrapped in the Bible, he is shackled to Christ.

         Ronald C. Downie .

The World Is restless but still wedded to its time worn belief systems bent on keeping a lid on the aspirations of followers sometimes no matter the costs in human life. Read Edwin Markham's poem "The MaN With A Hoe". He saw what's happening today long ago.
