Our christian values are best summed up by individual experience, and when the time comes we will each have to face our our own morality. the issues we struggle with in life will disappear in the afterlife.

Classical issues

Get down on your knees and plead for mercy,
With burning tongue whispering torment of sin
The embarrassed heart remain just as guilty,
And you are seen fit in heaven to be forgiven.
The faith factors arise out of classical issues,
and we in Britain and schisms around the world,
the religious and contentious pride of outward epistles,
Penitent measure with lifestyle to tempt the soul.
Internal forces contemplate our eternal fate,
we seek the bread of heaven in a hungry world,
but the peril known to humanity cannot wait,
eventually faith will diminish and we grow old.
Leave the system of belief to a new society,
to changing cultural roots and religious views,
the principles pertaining to holiness and piety,
Relate to humanity, spirituality and moral values.
Devout people adjudicate judgment wrong,
Lent imbued with exploring outward exhibition,
Religious attitudes blinds the reality with demand,
The young see the old as strange holy phenomenon.
Concern for reflection of what others may say,
The current state and where religion should be
the religious leaves reverence for God in subsidiary,
The power of good and truth overcome by iniquity.
Makes religion a hostage to the forces within,
War and desolation alter opulence and poke fun,
the contentious is a grim joke with a mind stain with sin,
and the pernicious condition wins if you are immune.
Global cult driven to funerals by inexplicable mirth
the virtuous theology embrace multicultural world,
Justification reap the benefits engaging new birth,
Restitution remodeled version bought with gold.
The capacious taunt from beyond the grave echo,
Resemble the spirit of just men made perfect,
Holiness transforms the passage in centuries long ago,
Prophet and priest in visions beset by the Holy Spirit.
On conscious highway society will turn its head in rejection,
but old cathedrals will have both on the cutting edge,

Yes ~ Gerry ~ it is unfortunate that so many of the young ~ even believers ~ do see the old as strange. As they grow older and mature at least a few will come to realize that holiness transforms. Interesting article.
