    u r right. it? was a slip. I love Jesus but I drink a little…

    luv the video’s but not the Blasphemy, you shouldn’t take the Lord’s name in vain, Jesus Christ is God’s son so use his name in an upbuilding? way, like, without Jesus or God we wouldn’t have these ingredients, they are so kind to us for providing them and the rain and sunshine provided too. I’m not too good at this so please forgive me.
