Back to the Future_Greg Asimakoupoulos-What do Christians in America have to look forward to?
Best beware. The worst awaits us.
Christians soon will pay a price
to embrace a “one way” message
based in Jesus’ sacrifice.
There’s a move afoot among us
to suggest each faith’s the same.
And while you can say “God bless you,”
don’t you dare use Jesus’ name.
If you do you may be branded
as a bigot lacking worth.
You can sing God bless our nation,
just don’t say He came to earth.
As it was it shall again be,
when the faithful will be jeered
just for following core values
that the world considers weird.
What is dark will grow much darker.
We’ll be bruised, abused, and scarred.
But although we're scoffed or martyred,
we will shine like distant stars.
Though new laws may nix our freedoms
and negate the Source of life,
He whose name incites division
will stand with us in the strife.

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.
