[The Real LJ Idol Season 10] Week 5 Fear is the heart of love  
Shifts and Turns

Faith and Religion is
a very fine line
The Master who said "Love your neighbors"
Who gave His Blood to the faithful
And Rose from the Dead
Changing them with the Spirit
His Path twisted by
"What the Romans said"
Losing its Heart
Trapped in Fear
Love now being lost
In "What the Pastor
And your Elders said".
Not the root of His Choices
But Human Misinterpretation
Now Others
Are slowly reclaiming
The Truth and Trust
The Original Path
The cycle circles back
To Love

Are others doing that? I guess, at times, it seems very distant and nearly forgotten. Perhaps this is a good reminder!

I like the wind of change in the end stanzas. Nice take!

Right off the bat you hooked me. Yes, the differences between "faith" and "religion". Nice job on this.

I so hope so.

I love the direction you took with this. I think it is the only one with a religious take on the prompt that I have read at this point.

It's funny that the one simple lesson of "love" is the one most people have the hardest time finding. Trappings, tradition, and dogma so often outweigh it, and it takes almost a radical heart these days to see what was meant rather than what the message has become to far too many.
