Christian Promise
netskyIam

Man is tragic when entrapped
 1
 
 
By lies of words which Truth has snapped
 2
 
 
And shut without the tome of God
 3
 
 
He will rise not from 'neath the sod

is the source of an online edition of Noah Webster's 1828 dictionary.
Webster was a bible literalist who created his dictionary in order to further his biblical lie;
to define our language -after- the bible, rather than define our language from actual (then-modern) usage.  

In this new series of "Christian xxxx" poems I have according applied verse-words down in concordance with his and his bible's style.

example:

WITHOUT, prep.

    4. Beyond; not within.

    Eternity, before the world and after, is without our reach.
 — netskyIam

Yet, three days after, ‘neath sod he rose,
according to that ancient Bible prose;
and dare I think that this is true
since god is God, and I not Jew.
 — Rixes

Short but to the point.

When did you become a Christian, Netsky?
 — unknown

O', when was I not the embodiment of what it all "supposed" to be about?
((the poem is about didactic lies))
