Please help me God to live without you

Grace1918photographEnstrom

Please help me God to live without you.
Make me a better atheist.
Help me find that inner strength and value
that allows my error to persist.

Please help me God to ignore your commandments.
Make me a sinner and not a saint.
Help me to numb my moral sense.
Help me to live without restraint.

Please help me God to find my own way
without your guidance or assistance.
Help me to make it through this day
and keep your angels at a distance.

Please help me God to curse your name.
Strengthen my will to blaspheme.
Help me to remember and proclaim
the paths that go against the stream.

Please help me God to prove your non-existence.
Furnish my mind with arguments.
Help me to awaken people from this trance
and to discourage their pretense.

Please help me God to burn in hell.
Help me to eradicate your shadow.
Let me break away from your spell
and deal your ghost the final blow.

Please help me God to diminish your flock.
Make me a selfish egotist.
Allow me to administer the shock
and show that You do not exist.

    I think this painting means to tell you “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give Thanks in all circumstances: for this is the Will of God in Christ Jesus for you. instead of Will Tigs saying, I pray to God to live being with Him;to keep His Commandments; to Guide me with His Holy Spirit;to praise His name all my life;to prove His Omnipotence;to take me Heaven one day;to increase His number in His church.

  2. I quite appreciate the irony in well-written, poetic versification… Thank you for this thought-provoking offering!

  3. An interesting take on things.. I am sure God would approve the humour if he did exist and if he doesn’t then he probably is us and it made me smile,,
