It's not how you walk per say with the One above on this earth (not dismissing this concept though) but how you treat the ones here, that determines a lot

Greenbaum is a Jew who heard Porter Wagoner sing a gospel song and got inspired to write his own. While not a Christian, it sounds like he got most of the message right. Good hippie gospel if you ask me.
