For God so loved the world

For God so loved the world that he created man
to live
to suffer
to love

For God so loved the world that he created man
to hate and to kill

For God so loved the world that he created man
to plunder
to colonize
to create

For God so loved the world that he created man
to subjugate
to live free
to love

For God so loved the world that he gave his only son
to save humanity

For God so loved his son
he couldn’t protect him from Pontius Pilate’s trial

For God so loved the world that he created man
to be free.
