Mal, I saw you do a soundbyte on God.tv & loved what you said, 'The kingdom does not have a hierarchy, but a sense of order.'

I just wish that more people knew about your EDGES website. The world is dying to hear about such a message. Thank you!

I've just finished watching your EDGES program about morals. I really enjoyed it, I feel morals are constantly being eroded away...God created sex for marriage, it's not a toy for exploitation by the media ...Keep up the good work.
