There’s Only One God
Intro: up to 50 words Why are there so many religions ? Why not just one ? As I get older I seem to question things !

Hi Val. Had a couple of Jehovah Witnesses at my door recently.I had a chat with them and I told them I believed in God and also told them there are many false religions though. But they believe in some odd things too but they seemed genuine enough. I said we’re all going to find out one day and they agreed and went to another neighbour. Thanks for reading Val. ☺

Nice read Kevin,
Thanks for reading my poem Michael much appreciated. Yes it is a touchy subject but then again there are others too.Politics can get people hot under the collar,and I’ve seen punches thrown between two blokes over differences about their football team.Then again my team Coventry City would make anybody angry ! Cheers. Kevin.
