Poor choice, bad business!

I thought I would provide you with another sermon by the old hardrockers of Black Sabbath today, I would say that they are not quite as bad as their reputation has them!

An oldfashioned turn-or-burn-preacher couldn´t have done this better!

We seldom hear this kind of straightforward message nowadays, not even from the pulpit, but it is said that if we Christians don´t speak the message of God, then the very stones will shout it!

Here it is, their sermon, based, as it seems, on 2 Cor 4:4 and 2 Thess 2:9-12!

”You’re searching for your mind, don’t know where to start

Can’t find the key to fit the lock on your heart

You think you know, but you are never quite sure

Your soul is ill, but you will not find cure

Your world was made for you by someone above

But you choose evil ways instead of love

You made me master of the world where you exist

The soul I took from you was not even missed…”


Lord of this world

Evil Possessor

Lord of this world

He’s your confessor now!


”You think you’re innocent you’ve nothing to fear

You don’t know me, you say, but isn’t it clear?

You turn to me in all your wordly greed and pride

But will you turn to me when it’s your turn to die?”


As I said, these here lyrics are quite a sermon! What is said in them is t´s all true.

We were made by Someone above, and this beautiful world was made for us by this same Someone.

And He wants us to love Him and one another.

And if we choose evil ways of greed and pride instead of the Lord´s double commandment of love, then we also choose to serve the devil.

We make him lord of our world, lord of our lives.

We trade the love of God for the cruelty and hatred of His enemy.

Striking a deal like that is poor choice and bad business – and you wouldn´t do that, would you?
