"Cotton Candy Christians,"

By Eben

Have your cake and eat it--

There is nothing that can beat it!

Deny myself? And bear my cross?

I'm all for gain, but not for loss!

Your talk of suffering is not true--

my preacher takes a different view!

"It's attitude and self-esteem--

Be Number 1," smiles Reverend Beam.

While we sing "Old Rugged Cross"

The Lord of Grace is not our boss.

Our Lord flies a sleek Lear jet,

He's got a million bucks, you bet!

The music rocks, the bands play loud,

The crowds that come are really wowed.

They make decisions left and right,

Like sardines in a can packed tight.

Cotton candy gives a high,

but in the lows, we wonder why.
