He who has no sin, cast the first stone!
He who has no guilt, point the guilty out;
blessed are the poor in spirit
for theirs is the kingdom of God.

If you are so holy, why is your neighbor starving?
Since you are so pious,
share in his suffering.

Since you are so holy
why won’t you do what Jesus did:
lay down your life for your neighbor?

See the mob is gathering!
Where is your Christianity?
As they light the matches,
where is your piety?
Alone he lies dying and all you do is cast your stone:
where in The Word is this righteous?
