    How lucky was the world to have TWO men of God preaching the message of love! Both of these great men understood who God is and how we’re to reflect God by loving our fellow man, no matter what color of skin he is! It isn’t for us to pick and choose who or how we love. If we truly God we will truly love ALL people!
