none quick enough

De hosts “quick” quadrille at dVerse and I remembered the line from Apostles’ Creed. “Quick” may be archaic for “living” (which we use now) but still fits.


“He will come to judge the quick and the dead.”

who appoints us
to be another’s judge?

who designates our
high court as supreme?

who dares to live
as law unto himself?

Someday each one will tremble
on holy ground in Judge Jesus’ presence.

    So often, on so many issues, I thank God that he is the one in charge of judging. And that he is full of mercy. We just can’t know what is inside of another.

    I agree, we will all tremble in his Presence.

    It’s true that we are no one to judge each other; it’s the tenets and fundamentals of social structure that has made us believe in this system. To what avail? I do not know.
    It’s an interesting take. 🙂

    I particularly like this line: “who dares to live as law unto himself?”

    It is best not to judge. Good advice.

    I think the judge will be judged…

    This is a great take. I can feel that tremble.
