WHO SPEAKS FOR GOD?

No one talks to God with any more clout than you and me

One speaks to God
and claims to derive
direction for many.

Another goes to God
and reports receiving
different guidance
for the same group.

Overseers deem to divine
unquestionable vision
for a million adherents.

Some in the faithful throng
alternatively discern
an equally valid
ancient-future way.

No one talks to God
with any more clout
than you and me.

Beware exceptional tongues--
no matter how powerful
or convincing--
that speak ex cathedra.
