    • I understand your thoughts Sweet Sister. The thing I liked was that I have never heard a pop star encourage faith in Christ in such a way. Not religious. Not judgemental. Loving & Encouraging. Blessings to you!

      • I agree, although I will take abundant grace over religiosity every time. Especially if even the elite of God may be deceived, if God sees fit to allow it. Glad it is God’s hands and not ours. Much love your way xx
