FAITHFUL CHRISTIANS


 “When faithful Christians do their Savior's will, they love their enemies, they Do not kill. Obedient believers don't be Mad; they know their faithfulness will make them glad! So, You and I, let's Purify our hearts, let Jesus' love cast out our doubts and fears. Let's practice Jesus' Presence, Do our parts – ta help make sure that Peace on Earth appears!”

WE'RE HUMAN


Now, worshiping an idol, that's insane; I wouldn't be surprised if You agree. To demonize a human 's wrong; that's plain: Obama, Clinton, Trump, like you and me, they're human, capable of good and bad; they make mistakes, and sometimes do nice things. To demonize or idolize 'em 's sad; they don't have devils' horns, nor angels' wings. They, and we, are human!”
