Re: John 3:16 book

Hi Matt, You wrote, "a. I see the book as being pretty evangelistic. My main audience is people on the fringes of Christianity or outside of it completely (though I think the book has value for seasoned Christians as well)." I like your vision for this book, and the idea for keeping it short (concis...

Re: John 3:16 book

Hi Matt, you wrote, For Jesus to come right out and say “I am God” would have been even more confusing then than explaining the Trinity sometimes is today. If you haven't caught this mistake: "then than" Really liking the book. I'm thinking it would be great for gifts to loved ones etc. that haven't...

Re: John 3:16 book

Hi Matt, I'm very interested to read your book on John 3:16. May God bless your efforts. I like what I've read so far and think your doing good. Just one thing to point out. Shouldn't this: "Introduction On Monday, January 12th of 2012," Read: January 9th, the 12th was a Thursday. God bless you and ...

Re: Revisiting Acts 13:48

Hi Tychicus, I don't read where God appointed anyone: Acts 13:48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed. (KJV) I like Steve Gregg's teaching on this verse in his tape series I listened to years ago t...

Re: John 3:16 and God's love

I was wondering about the idea that it is a greater love to die for all and not just your friends when I remembered, John 15:13, Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. The idea above has some logical merit but then there's what Jesus says here. Just thought...
