Episode Info

Episode Info: Tony Funderburk - Rhyme and Reason Author, Singer Songwriter, Podcaster, Visionary The sacred heart of fools ain’t sacred People in another part of the world (I’m in America) have their sacred cow. And that’s become sort of a metaphor for whatever somebody holds dear. But I don’t wanna use that. Because I’m talking about the sorry state of human beings and the way they talk to and treat each other these days. Individual desires trump everyThing AND everyOne else. If your selfishness takes you that far behind the dark door, it has become your sacred heart. Don’t trust your sacred heart. You and I are flawed, sinful people. All you gotta do is read social media threads to know that. But I suggest reading something much more rewarding. A book with an awesome plot twist. The only book in the history of the world that can help you understand what’s truly sacred. And what is that? It’s not your cause. Not your candidate for office. It’s not your favorite entertainer. (even if he or she proclaims the name of Jesus) Not movie makers. Or even a beautiful building to hang out in on Sundays. Everything in this world is worthy of being tossed in the fire and consumed. And everyone in this world will lie, let you down, and break your heart. At least once. Yeah, I probably don’t even have to tell you, but… Nothin’s Sacred Anymore Take the truth and lock it up, and throw away the key Winds of change are blowing foul; a dance with destiny Blur the face of love and sex and say it’s all OK Tell the child it’s just a choice and melt her soul away Nothin’s sacred anymore… Can’t we learn from mistakes when they cut to the core Nothin’s sacred anymore… And should we be surprised since we’ve opened that dark, wide door? Nothin’s sacred anymore Cast your vote for social growth and then say yes to law Keep the peace, divide the wealth; the vision Adolph saw Hedge the bets and ride the fence; the middle road’s secure Then one day you’re head to head with all you must endure Nothin’s sacred anymore… Can’t we learn from mistakes when they cut to the core Nothin’s sacred anymore… And should we be surprised since we’ve opened that dark, wide door? Nothin’s sacred anymore More space and time…more would be sublime Someone else can pay…long as I get mine today Ain’t nothin’ sacred anymore © 2002 Tony Funderburk Whatever is your sacred heart…unless it’s Jesus…I recommend you give it up. It might be a struggle. But you’re not alone in that struggle. Everyone else in the world is struggling against their flesh, too. No matter how it looks on the outside. But you were fearfully and wonderfully made. By a Creator who wants to love you forever. And He’s so awesome that He’s given you the choice to be with Him or not. He hopes (and so do I) you’ll want to be with Him in Heaven forever. But He won’t make you go there if you’d rather exist in your own selfish hate forever. You can be the “ruler”...
