Fury, Love & Confusion


“Im not really interested in what you have to say …. I do not cooperate with Gestapo …. I do not talk to the Nazis. You came in your uniforms like thugs. Thats what you are. Brownshirts of Adolf Hitler. You are Nazi Gestapo, communists, fascists. I do not cooperate with Nazis …. You are not allowed here, you are not welcomed here!”


(Artur Pawlowski; The Dailywire, April 25, 2021)


“Gestapo not allowed here!”

he said

“You are not welcomed here!”

he said

standing firm

a stalwart hero to many


this is difficult


it is hard

I do not understand

nor do I know

how to reconcile his words

with Jesus words


“Come to Me and I will give you rest”

as He opened His arms

welcoming anyone


or with Jesus other words


“Father, forgive them!”

as they pounded their pain

into His embrace



I dont want to think that pastors such as Artur Pawlowski or Henry Hildebrandt or James Coates or Tim Stephens are preaching heresy nor that they do not fully grasp the Bible but I also, and much more so, dont want to think that Jesus wasnt Himself a heretic or didnt fully grasp the gospel of salvation. Yet Jesus message seems to be at odds with what these men are teaching. Its hard for one in my position to say that these four, who are far more educated that I, are wrong; but if they're not then how do I reconcile what Jesus says with what they say when what they say is so different?
