NEW- [Past teaching- verses below]

Today I spent the whole day with my friends- I decided to turn on the video for a little bit.

But it actually turned out to be an in depth discussion about Predestination.

It was interesting to see how Crow watched some of my past teaching videos [good thing by the way] and had very insightful questions.

So I shared some of the history of the church- and the different views some hold to.

We actually got into an in depth talk about Universal-ism [the view that all get saved at the end- even satan]!

And what the historic church teaches about these different views.

Most of all you get to see my friends- and truly they live on the streets- all of them.

Some of the guys go to work- they come ‘home’ and are back out- like Claire likes to say ‘children who live under the stars’.

I found it interesting how Allen and Charlie both brought up a subject earlier in the day- yet neither of them realized they brought up the same thing- while the other was not there.

To me that's confirmation of how God speaks.

I actually was going to just let my friends talk a little- and was going to do my walk and teach something else [Zechariah].

But it worked out better this way.

The things I brought up- sometimes are considered taboo to even speak about.

But over the years as I have studied lots of church history its important- at least in my mind- to see how different churches have had different views about things.

That does not mean we should all change our views- but to try and understand how sincere Christians- thru their reading of the scriptures- have come to see things in different ways.

I also noticed thru my years of studying church history- that often times we are too quick to label others a cult- or not even saved.

Yes- there are important doctrines that one must believe in order to be a true Christian.

But there are many other doctrines we find in the bible- that are not fundamental to being saved.

When believers disagree on these- it’s better to have grace with one another- and not cut people off because their views are different than ours.

Ok- that's it for today- hopefully the discussion might peak your interest into studying some of what we talked about on your own.

God bless all-

John- and his friends.

NOTE- Right after I shut the video off- Bobby told me Danny died on Good Friday- not Easter.
