Luther, Hell, & Charles Johnson

Now, I am. Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle have offered a response in “Erasing Hell: What God Said About Eternity And The Things We Made Up“. Here’s a review worth checking out. And here’s a video.
—– There are several solid versions of this song, but I came across an old cassette owned by my great-grandmother of “Charles Johnson & The Revivers” recently, in which this song was featured. This was my great-grandmothers favorite version. Enjoy.
