Truth and Deception
The man to the elect lady,
The one whom he loves in the truth;
Who is gentle and is dainty
That He has known upon His youth.
Because the truth abides in her,
And will be within forever;
The baptism that did occur,
That will not falter or sever.
Grace, mercy, and peace that shall be,
From the Father and Jesus Christ;
That love through the Spirit we see,
Causes the truth to be enticed.
I rejoice greatly in the truth,
Following the children where they walk;
Told by the Father in their youth,
Words He commanded that they talk.
Now he will ask the dear lady,
Not as though it has been written;
A poem set to a melody,
Rather thoughts that are forbidden.
As we have from the beginning,
Showing love for one another;
And to avoid any sinning,
Against a sister or brother.
This is a love we hold to walk,
According to His commandments;
Like the sheep that are in His flock,
Abiding by His testaments.
Deceivers have gone through the land,
That has followed the antichrist;
While preaching on sinking sand,
Since Satan has made them enticed.
