  1. I completely agree with Soul and if Nigel and William see it fit to pay for something they can download free using Internet Download Manager in .mp4 or .mp3 format. I don’t see what all the fuss is about, if they decide to send Jnr. Brown a dollar for the track, they might as well stop kicka** torrenting and buying pirated cd’s in the CBD.

  2. God had already laid out His plan of redemption for the predicament of mankind. It is a love story, written in blood on a wooden cross which was erected in Judea almost 2,000 years ago.
