Far From Perfect

You scrutinize the faithful,

attempting to identify
any failing,
isolate every flaw,

expecting a statement
of belief to equal
perfection of character.

A standard even the Savior
does not require.

  1. Ha …the person you write of is very exacting discerning with high expectations. I know someone like this.

  2. Ah, there’s the rub; different standards for different folk.

    Human standards are often harder to live up to than divine standards!

    There’s far too much derision about something nobody can prove one way or another. The believers hate the non-believers, the non-believers hate the believers, and both of them hate us folk who fall in between!

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
