    Anne; you say it! Whatever is in our heart, whatever grace, whatever truth, whatever real knowledge and experience in God; will be reflected clearly for all to see: and so the Holy Spirit in us will THEN indeed be able to convict and convince men, by the truth in us. Lip service and salesmanship doesn't fool anyone but those who have no discernment. Stage-playing is a cunning art of the devil.
