Fools of the World

The only people who are righteous are the fools of the world.

Standing up when you are told to sit down.

Sitting down when you are told to stand.

Marching when you are told to go home.

Speaking when gags are placed over your mouth.

Remaining silent when your mouth is forced open.

Force makes fools of the righteous.

Change happens when the fools of the world

Stand together in opposition to selfish wisdom

For selfishness is the wise counsel to the world.

Avarice is it’s watchword

and Fear is it’s default mode.

When Peace stands up to Fear

There may be suffering

But the suffering will not last.

Grant Barnes, aka Grantimus Maximus, aka The Nerdcore Theologian. He is a graduate of Perkins School of Theology with a Masters Degree in Divinity. He is also a commissioned elder in the United Methodist Church, and Senior Pastor at Hemphill First United Methodist Church and Pineland United Methodist Church. He graduated from Texas State University Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in English, minor in History. He watches way too many movies, reads too many books, listens to too much music, and plays too many video games to ever join the mundane reality people claim is the "Real World." He rejects your reality, and replaces it with a vision of what could be, a better one, shaped by his love for God.
