    No no baby that ain’t God
    All that fussin and fighting
    And carrying on
    That is not the way at all
    No no baby that ain’t God
    All the hate
    Where’s the Love ?
    Nasty feelings
    Blasting me from high above
    No no baby that ain’t God
    Do right by me
    Or not at all
    Go back, read the word
    Find out what its all about
    Cause uh uh baby that ain’t God

    Timely piece, catchy title!

    Very timely piece it will either have you shaking your head in shame, or nodding in agreement. But, it surely provoked necessary thought!
    Blessings on ya house!

    It’s like hearing some incredibly bad gossip about your brother and no matter how many times they say that it's true you know Him and you know that aint him. The secrete is in knowing Him for yourself.
