R.I.P. Billy Paul (1934 - 2016)

(1934 - 2016)
Grammy Award winning artist Billy Paul passed away on April 24, 2016. He's best known for his hit, "Me and Mrs. Jones" but I'll remember him for his song, "War of the Gods" because it was more like a prayer than a song - if you could get over the whole 'Lucifer' part, that is.

'God' is just a title.
It's like calling somebody father,
preacher, president or general.
Allah, Buddha, Hare Krishna.
Jehovah, just to mention a few.
Some people even call, call Jesus 'God' too.

Love, Peace and Eternal Life
Is a reward
To anyone who knocks on your doors

There's only one god that's true.
And all the name's are not the same.
One day the people of the world
will know your good name.
You are the strong
and you are the mighty.
I hope I'm with you
When they start the fighting.
The War of the Gods

You certainly know His good name now. Rest In Peace.
