Only God can give a gift like this to a man.
That being said, Phil is just a man, and he is a sinner like the rest of us.
However, he is a sinner saved by grace, just like the rest of us who have said yes to what Jesus did for us.
I enjoy most of what Phil has done, I have many of his songs and instrumental creations. I will not go so far to say that he is the "best" guitar player, but he is the best guitar player at what he does.
I have many favorite guitar players that I listen to, some are not Christian and some are, but they have one thing in common, God has given them the gift, and the talent that they have, how they choose to use it, is entirely up to them.
Phil made a choice to sing for, and about Jesus, and I am glad that he did. He has been a blessing to my heart.
