    The Devils Vision

    The devil once said to his demons below,
    Our work is progressing entirely too slow,
    The holiness people stand in our way,
    Since they don't believe in the show or the play,

    They teach that the carnival, circus and dance,
    The tavern and honky-tonk with game of chance,
    Drinking and smoking, these things are all wrong,
    That Christians don't mix with the ungodly throng.

    They're quick to condemn everything that we do,
    To cause unbelievers to be not a few.
    They claim that these things are all of the devil,
    That Christian folk live on a much higher level.

    Now fellows, their theology while perfectly true,
    Is blocking the work we are trying to do.
    We'll have to get busy and figure a plan,
    That will change their standards as fast as we can.

    Now I have a vision of what we can do,
    Harken - I'll tell this deception to you.
    Then find me a wise, but degenerate man,
    Whom I can use to help work out this plan,

    There's nothing so real as the thing you can see,
    The eyes and the mind and the heart will agree.
    So what can be better than an object to view,
    I say it will work and convince not a few.

    The home is the place for the sinful device,
    The people deceived will think it quite nice.
    The world will possess it, most Christians can't tell,
    That it's all of the devil and was plotted in Hell.

    We'll sell them with pictures of the latest News,
    And while they're still looking we'll advertise booze.
    At the soul-damning cigarette also they'll look,
    Until they forget what God says in His Book.

    At first it will shock them, they'll seem in a daze,
    But soon they'll be hardened and continue to gaze.
    We'll give them some Gospel that is not too strong,
    And a few sacred songs to string them along.

    They'll take in the ads with the latest of fashions,
    And soon watch the shows that stir evil passions.
    Murder and love-making scenes they'll behold,
    Until in their souls they'll be bitterly cold.

    The "old family altar" which once held such charm,
    Will soon lose its place without much alarm.
    Praying in secret will also be lost,
    As they look at the screen without counting the cost,

    The compromise preachers who don't take their stand,
    Will embrace this new vision and think it is grand,
    They'll help fool the people and cause them to sin,
    By seeking this evil and taking it in.

    Influence is great and this you can see,
    Just look at my fall and you'll have to agree.
    It won't take too long, my demons to tell,
    That the vision of Satan will populate Hell.

    Divorce will increase, sex crimes will abound,
    Much innocent blood will be spilled on the ground.
    The home will be damned in short order, I say,
    When this vision of mine comes in to stay.

    Get busy, my cohorts, and put this thing out,
    We'll see if the Church will continue to shout.
    The holiness people who stand in our way,
    Will soon hush their crying against show and play,

    We'll cover the earth with this devil's vision
    Though we'll camouflage it with the name "Television".
    The people will think they're getting a treat,
    Till the antichrist comes and takes over his seat,

    He'll then rule the world while the viewers behold,
    The face of the Beast to whom they were sold.
    We'll win through deception, this cannot fail,
    Though some holy preachers against it will rail.

    I'd argue with him but I hate arguing with people when they are right, it just takes all of the fun out of it. [​IMG]

    Reading it, I wasn't sure if the "item" was the television or the internet. Of course, since it was posted on the internet, I should have ruled that out, huh?

    BTW, there are a lot of good things on the internet, such as several church services which I like to watch and the NBA.
