Against Arminian Libertarian Freedom

“Whosoever Will,” thou hast said (John 3:16)
Remind them though that “Whosoever” is dead (Eph 2:1)
Remind them of their hardened hearts (Ex. 9:12, Eph. 4:18)
Which gladly binds them to the Serpent’s stead
And works so the “Whosoever” never starts
To will in favor of a dead “better part”

“Now is the day,” thou hath spoke
But “Whosoever’s” mind is darkened and their nature broke
And as Responsibility does not ability convey
So the dead are not, at a command awoke
And cannot even hear the communique
That would have dead men choose a living way

So, the Will is free, but in bondage spun
It is not of “Whosoever” who wills or runs
The fallen will is only free to act
Consistent with the dead man’s pact
Soaked in Dragon’s milk, sealed with Wormwood tongue

The Stranger

The Stranger visiting my home
Though receiving warm embrace
Understands their role as guests
And that my home is not their place
Understands the visit ends
With dismissing words of grace

The Stranger within my land
Strangers they must remain
Lest my people become the aliens
And my inheritance iron chains
Lest their gods become ascendant
And their seed become our bane

The Stranger is distinct
We extend kindness for God’s sake
But forgetting we are other
Would be a mutually harmful mistake
It would be to forget the proverb
“High fences, good neighbors make
