Yes, Whatever Floats Your Boat

“…[I]t is certainly more convenient and comfortable to have a foggy faith because in a fog you can never be sure you have lost your way.”
—Peter Kreeft

Don’t look now, but the contemporary Whatever-Floats-Your-Boat “gospel” has sprung a leak. The spiritual Lusitania (aka “liberal theology”) has been torpedoed by ancient pagan influences in very lukewarm waters somewhere between Thyatira and Laodicea, and the “All You Need is Love” boat is going down.

Wise men and women will sincerely seek the Life Preserving Truth and abandon ship.

Yes, Whatever Floats Your Boat


We preach nothing from the pulpit,
That would make you ill at ease…
We think Jesus came to soothe you,
And like him, we aim to please.

Climb aboard “The Good Ship Comfy”,
There’s no Holy here, my friend…
Cruise these foggy, lukewarm waters
That we promise won’t offend.

Sir, we’ll tell you what is pleasing…
Yes, whatever floats your boat!
Here you’ll have no sinking feeling,
You’ll just LUV what we promote!

Meet us at the muster station
On “Apostasia’s Deck”.
You won’t need a Life-Preserver…
(Here’s millstone for your neck.)



There's no doctrine we can't alter,
There's no Word that's truly "true",
There's no Scripture we call sacred...
No true Truth to misconstrue.

There’s no meaning we can’t muddle,
Orthodoxy we can’t trash…
We’ve got faith in what’s “progressive”,
Fundamentals, sir, to bash.

There’s no prophecy to speak of…
There’s no “sin”, and there’s no Fall,
There’s no Holy Spirit warning:
“Watch that writing on the wall!”

There’s no Creed now to profess, sir…
Just embrace what you think’s “fair”,
Your religion’s what you’re feeling,
Now that “truth”’s up in the air.

There’s no Lamb and no atonement,
There’s no “savior” needed now…
There’s no Dogma, there’s no Standard,
No more need for heads to bow.

There’s no reason for confession,
No repentance needed, ma’am...
We preach only Ego-Boosting,
Not the faith in some “I AM”.

There’s no cause for true contrition,
There’s no reason now to mourn,
“Poor in spirit” holds no blessing…
Talk like that we’ve come to scorn!

There’s no one true way to follow,
(That’s a travesty at best!)…
Curse the strait Way Jesus spoke of,
Broad way Humanism?....Bless!


Lord, have mercy now upon us,
Word of God, please light the Way…
Guide us to the Cross of Calv’ry,
Bring us low, then help us pray.



Give us there the Living Water,
Wash us then through Truth and Grace….
Lord, we’re drowning in confusion,
Help us turn and seek your face.


“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come. It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble. So watch yourselves.”
—Luke 17:3
