Even if we may klaim 2 be holy; we’ve all fallen short of the Lord’s glory.. 1 thing guyz; dont judge otherz lest we may be judged !! Honestly speakng,some of us wud hav gone long way bak az we’ve ever indulged ourselves in such malpraktices & it’s by God’s grace that a thing of that nature never happened & dat we’re stil intakt… Just praise Jesus Christ !!!! However, lessonz r ment 2 be lent.. Don’t drive whilst intoxcated az it criplez one’s judgement !! May Their Souls Rest in Peace…
