"He Counseled God"
God listened in His silence, as he rambled on his plight.
With patience, love, and charity, the Lord, He would not fight.
Negotiating with God he went, into the late hours of the night.
Explaining a hundred reasons why, he knew that he was right!
Debating his positions, and then struggling with his quest.
He offered more excuses, with words that would not rest.
He said,"dear Lord, it's very clear, the gospel I was taught,
Is different than theology, and the answers friends have sought."
So he counseled the Lord, and justified, and argued there his case.
Asking God to change His will, that truth would now keep pace.
"The prophet is old, his mind is closed, his beliefs are rather slim.
The younger crowd, they need new thought, and change with views on sin."
The Lord was kind, he sent some prompts, hoping He could sway.
The young man's heart, it hardened more, and drove the light away.
Convinced he'd won, that God agreed, to his philosophy,
Head held high, he then embarked, the path to apostasy.
