Destination's Gun

I'm not the first person confused by the "Doctrine of Predestination ". And I guess I won't be the last to overreach and try to explain his anger.

Destination’s Gun

Steel spires stretch up toward heaven
They rip the belly o’ the sky
Built by the church of too much thought
They scratch the wrath of God
Sour grapes spring forth in rage
And deface the face of love
Hate might never take its place
If heaven is enough


A wounded sky, an angry God
A little too much thought
They say that truth is where you find it
… most times it’s not
Most times it finds you early
Or blesses chosen ones
Most times you miss that train to Glory
Shot down by destination’s gun
Oh, by destination’s gun
Oh, destination’s gun
Most times you miss that train to glory
Shot down by destination’s gun

I understand Ecclesiastes

ALL of Saint John, Chapter Three
Those are not threats, they're promises
And I weep for what we leave
Look down into that forest glade
Into that sparkling stream
Can heaven with its angry God
Touch these shades of green?

Touch these shades of green
Touch these shades of green
Can heaven with its angry God
Touch these shades of green?

Please remember "whosoever cometh unto me, I will in no wise cast out"...at least this verse has helped me out...and
"Draw nigh unto God and He will draw high unto you.".

I have also listened to pastor Waite's sermons on Sermonaudio, and they have helped me alot with this issue. He gives biblical evidence against hyper-Calvinism.

Keep writing. I love your style.
