Building On Sand

{Adapted from Matthew 7.21-23 in the NRSV}

"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the Kingdom of God.

But Lord, Lord, did we not keep clean and secure the beautiful structures we built so that we could gather in your name?  And did we not try our best to replace secular influences with our own sub-culture of media and merchandise in your name?  And do we not attempt to spread our religious influence to the world around us through powerful means?  

Jesus answered them, "Only those who do the will of my Father in heaven are fit for the Kingdom of God."
