        @ Correction, Who are you? Did god tell you to speak for him? No matter how you write it or say it, as long as the other person understood what he meant, it was good communication. Show us some respect and get off this blog. Thank god no one was hurt.

          @Steve. Correction is very correct!! We need to have respect and use a Capital 'G' because you would not spell your name with a common letter. One day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He Lord.

            @ Peaches, who said everyone believes in your god? I'm an agnostic (look it up). Here we go again trying to shove your beliefs down everyone's throat, as if you are in charge. You bow your knee and be happy that you are going to your hereafter wherever that is, whether it be your hell or your heaven.

              Steve have a drink of water and calm down.

              Lord forgive the person behind the name of Steve for he knows not what he is saying.
              Like Peaches, I also know that EVERY knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord "Wink Wink"
