Sometimes we can help one another through constructive criticism. I don't necessarily like to be the one doing it - but it can be helpful. It IS a joyful song if the one being sung to will consider learning something new.

So friends, today I ask you in the most humblest, sincere way I can come to you: "Should Jesus come today, tonight, is it well with your soul"? It's your responsibility to know your fate!!

It's fine when the one is teaching truth !! Nothing new comes from false teacher's and the error of their ways.....

Betsey most definitely knows His love and that is the song He has put in her heart and she is singing it to everyone loud and clear...... !!

I didn't day Betsy doesn't know God's love - or even that she doesn't have a beautiful song. I'm speaking a very straight forward concept, and that is: Altruistic/Godly behavior is not motivated by a desire to save one's own skin. These kinds of threads advocate a "turn or burn" message which is contrary to the knowledge of God. Whether or not someone thinks my comments are in error is up to them, no problem - thanks for your input on the subject.

So I really like what you said here FB, very profound indeed.

God loves you and wants you to share eternity with Him. Come, while grace abounds, please? TODAY is the day of salvation, tomorrow's not promised to anyone, amen? Love you guys!! Be mindful of the time.

Acts 2
[40] And with many other words did he [Peter] testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
[41] Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
