The New/Old Jesus People Speak

Years ago, in the 60’s and 70’s, I was part of the Jesus People Movement. It was during those days that I heard street-wise preachers like Phil in school auditoriums and in public parks. Hundreds of us teenagers attended.
We brought our school friends with us and many believed. And after they believed we took them down to the lake and baptized them right then and there. I baptized my best friend Carl.
Those are times I will never forget. Phil Robertson’s words reminded me once more of God’s love towards us, then and now and forever.
And don’t forget! Christmas ~ the birth of the Messiah King ~ is the start of the Kingdom of God on earth.
“Mary will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” the gospel of Matthew 1:21
(Jesus is the Greek form of Joshua, which means the Lord saves.)
Regarding the uproar over Phil’s A&E show comments, know this: at the heart of the problem of sin is “the persistent refusal to tolerate a sense of sin.” Alvin. Plantinga
