FIGHT of FAITH

Just starting Philippine recover

From enemy, Negros Isle.

It was the strongest Japanese conquest

In those islands, by a mile.

.

.

Beauteous with pools from streams flowing,

The fresh mountain streams.

Sure, plain to tell why they liked it

Heaven on earth!  It would seem.

.

.

Determined to keep this fair island,

But their amo supply low!

Sequestered themselves:  clear to the top

In pairs on main trail  to go.

.

.

This was jungle to plateau  up high,

Fairly level, wooded with caves.

Just the perfect ‘Shangri-La’ to behold.

For which every dreamer craves!

.

.

The Filipinos devoted themselves

To keeping to this garden land!

But population nearly all wiped out!

Killed  upon command!

.

.

But they missed a few, Dumagette,  like,

Collaborators suppose?

Then who could blame them for friendship?

Live awhile longer compose.

.

.

Frowning on collaborators so-called

When  all did what they could

To stay alive without joining,

Thinking  neither bad nor good!

.

.

As Christians, are we judgmentally strict?

Like, judgmental affecting the weak?

Are we not called to love one-another?

Helping those who still seek!

.

.

Do we give weaker Christians the 3rd degree,

The stringent order of right?

“Pray for each other,” this order given

Before they are ready to fight!

.

.

Sure, “fight the good fight of faith”  we are ordered

To some this is not quite clear!

“Love one-another,” in Christian love,

Fighting will not bring us near!

.

.

Salvation Army stresses this point!

The battle to the finish!

Though we wrestle not against flesh and blood,

Fight where God is in it!

.
