March Madness, Take Three


I have been in serious dormancy on this blog!  I find myself so busy with school and family that I don't have time to be poetic!  Hopefully, my involvement in this year's March Madness poetry competition at will change that.  My poem using the word "harrowing" is due tomorrow.  I have it written, but I can't share it with you here.  Please visit the link above to see my poem as well as 63 others.  Take a moment to vote for your favorite poem!

To entice you, I will share with you LAST year's first round poem.  My word was anthropomorphization.  It was a crazy hard word to use in an eight line poem, but I did it.  Here it is:

Fantastic Hope

Walter Disney was a talented man with an anthropomorphization plan.
From Micky Mouse and Oswald the Rabbit, he made turing objects into humans a habit.
McQueen from Cars thought that he was greater, but he learned to be humble, like his friend 'Mater.
Lumiere and Chip Potts urged Bell, "Be our guest."  
and though Gaston was handsome, the Beast loved her best.
Disney gave objects a heart and a face.  Can he do the same for our human race?

In last year's tournament, I didn't get past the first round.  I still had a ball following the many talented poets through the entire competition.  Please consider getting involved in this creative show of poetic prowess!

    The thought process of some Christians is puzzling to say the least. Why do some believers in Christ question that God has the power to guide men to translate Bibles that are inerrant, trustworthy, accurate, faultless, reliable, infallible.

    Some of the same Christians who believe the following miracles of the Bible, doubt that God can produce an inerrant translation of the Bible.

    They believe that Aaron's staff became a serpent. (Exodus 7:10-12) However they do not believe that translations of the Bible are trustworthy.

    They believe Jesus was resurrected from the dead. (John 21:14) However they do not agree that Bible translations are inerrant.

    They believe that the dead man Elisha stood up on his feet. (2 Kings 13:20-21) However they doubt that Bible translations are infallible.

    They believe Jesus brought Lazarus back from the dead. (John 11:37-44) However they do not affirm that Bible translations are reliable.

    They believe that God turned Lots wife into a pillar of salt. (Genesis 19:26) However they are not convince that God has given us a translation of the Bible that is accurate.

    Even those who state that the King James translation is the only accurate translation, believe that Mark 16:16 does mean what is says: They say "Has been baptized shall be saved" actually means, "Has already been saved before they were baptized." The assert that Acts 2:38 actually means "Be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ because your sins have already been forgiven." They really do not trust the KJV either.

    Ninety-nine percent of the Bible translations are accurate, trustworthy, inerrant translations of God's word.

    A few of my favorites are New American Standard Bible, King James Version, New King James Version, English Standard Version, and New International Version. There are also many other reliable translations.
