A Grave Mistake

Unearthing Jesus is a seasonal disorder.

A Grave Mistake
The bones of Jesus in a box?
His wife and son as well?
If true, our faith is but a farce
and we're all bound for hell.

For Heaven's sake! This grave ordeal
is only "holy" hype.
It's just the game Christ's critics play.
You know their rules and type.

The headlines claim He didn't rise.
It happens every year.
The media discredits faith
as Holy Week draws near.

The skeptics can't accept the fact
that Easter might be true.
They dig up ways to make their case.
It's really nothing new.

Unearthing Jesus is the goal
of those who won't believe.
But, boy, it makes me sick inside.
It makes me want to heave.

I wonder what the Savior thinks
at being called a fake.
I'm sure it really breaks his heart.
Eternal life's at stake.

Greg is on the money as usual. Sad to see so many trying to pass off speculation and hype as solid history. They will get an audience and many already suffering from doubt will tread deeper into darkness.

While it is sad so many people at this time try to bury our faith under hyped-up archeological finds, maybe it will actually cause people to at least think about the truth, think about Christ, and who knows, discover reality! It happened with author Josh McDowell who set out to prove the Bible to be untrue, but became convinced of its veracity, and he is not alone in that experience! So while the hype makes us sad, and mad, I believe God can use it to bring light and unearth His love in even those who try to discredit.

i ache inside when i listen or see discovery n other stations, magazine, articles or whatever discredit my God/jesus as they do. it doesn't have to be a certain time of year they've been at it since adam n eve ate the forbidden fruit. always trying to not only discredit God but the whole bible. why bother mentioning there was a jesus at all if you're not going to believe he's God. i was told once when someone belittles u 4 your christian walk don't be too discouraged they aren't attacking u but our Lord. may God richly bless u this easter season n may all your unsaved loved ones come to know his love, poppy ps, the fool has said in his heart there is no God located i believe in pslms or proverbs.

What a wonderful way to answer the critics, without animosity yet expressing the TRUTH. This needs to be passed along.

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
