The Passion to Repent_Greg Asimakoupoulos-How Gibson's Movie Caused a Killer to Confess
Confronted with the claims of Christ
as pictured on the screen,
a killer then confessed his crime
because of what he’d seen.
He witnessed God’s undying love
nailed to a bloodied cross.
He saw his own guilt dramatized
and what his sin had cost.
The loss of life he’d engineered
was ruled a suicide.
But what he’d done was killing him
in secret deep inside.
He knew he really had no choice.
Although there’d be a price
he had to set the record straight
and own his heinous vice.
In spite of life without parole,
his heart would be set free.
But first he had to face the facts
and mouth a guilty plea.
And so he did and so must we.
According to God’s scheme,
we cannot sing Amazing Grace
before we first come clean.

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.
