    Quite Frankly, I'm amazed at all of the modern day Scribes and Pharisees on Christian music posts. Well I asume some are simply ignorant, or "Athiests" I don't go onto your sites and try to discredit your artists, or your so-called(or lack thereof) Gods so don't disrespect me by coming onto our sites and acting like a Heathon. Just remember, there are no Athiests in Foxholes.

    You're thanking God you are going to hell? "Andy" if you think his music is boring, why listen? But I pray you don't go to hell. Because if that is where you end up, you won;t be thanking God I can assure you
