Rev Rob, who the f**k are you to call other people morons? Chain mails also annoyed me, yet I contained myself from belittling and demeaning the writers. You claim to be so righteous, and follow the path of Christ, but you can't have your cake and eat it too, so shut your f**king mouth and apologize, or get through your thick, bald head that you too will not be accepted through the pearly gates, especially when your flaws are so premeditated . your picture looks just like a duck with no ears:)

So True Henry....Eri c youre clearly not too bright & that's OK.
Its better to keep your mouth shut & be thought a fool, than to open your mouth a remove all doubt.

Don't read this. You will be kissed in the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Now you've started don't stop this is so freaky. But if you read this and ignore it you will have bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 144 min. When you are done press the spacebar and your crushes name will appear on the screen. This is so creepy but it works.

Nobody is forcing anybody to believe in God. Robert did his part by telling you of God. Now it's your decision on whether or not you will do the right thing.

Says the guy who rages on my profile lol you could join me in hell definitely not going to heaven if you really were a man of faith you wouldn't force others to believe in the same narrow minded bullshit you do. people have the right to believe what ever they want but forcing others to believe what you do is blaspheme. I doubt if god existed he'd be happy with what you said. not going to fight with an old bat who's whacko view point of the world is so out of sync that he believes in fairy tales

Incidentally , This tune was written by John Coltrane, who is an incredibilit y spiritual writer & artist. Songs like, Dear Lord and If not for Me as well as many others are about God.
Listen B&B. An artist is gifted by God to sing, write, read and perform music. Its one of the ways He seeks us. I hear The Gospel in it, because I listen differently than you do...God is The Creator. His Hand is going to come out in the finished work regardless of whether the Artist intends it to or not.

OK Eric & James, I will explain. Now this is from The Bible, so you might not understand since you've never read it...Christ came to earth for mankind to be saved from their sin. First Verse: Jesus is here and wanting a relationship with us, He will do most anything for us to see Him. All He can breath is our life...Choru s : The world doesn't get Christ (Romans 12:2). Everything's made to be broken, I just want you to know Who I Am.(Isaiah 53:5).

Old man your doing what most children do,your moulding this tune to fit your somewhat narrowminded point of view! I as well follow the Son of God, This song has zero to do with are father. Just another Horny man from Seattle's wet coast. ��

This song is a parable, a story that is truth. Its about Jesus and His relationship with us...He was broken for us. He doesn't want anything to come between you & His promise of eternal life for you. The world doesn't understand this...To those with an ear to hear. RevRob
