Lyrics: Hallelujah

(as sung by Jeff Buckley, verses written by Leonard Cohen)

Well I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this: The fourth, the fifth,
the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

Gospel According To Lucifer

What if God’s #1 angel wrote a book about the Creation in the style of “The Book of Acts”? How do things look from His point of view? I was inspired to write this after reading C. S.

AA’s 12 Steps

I plan to add the 12 steps to this blog. They have helped dozens of people heal, in my life and personal experience. Including myself. I have had the honor of using them to help others, and watching healing take place is a tremendous honor. Some think it’s a cult because they have not talked to a Christian who is involved in it. Almost all the Christian criticism of the program was done by people not involved in helping others heal. Those that stay outside can only hear gossip and rumors. If you want to know more, watch these posts!
