Patricia Dallmann commented on Ellis Hein's blog post 'True Christians: How Do You Know Them?'
"Forrest, I think it might help you to see the crucifixion from Jesus's perspective, rather than seeing it solely as a statement of God's power. From the human, Jesus, perspective, there is a choice to be made: shall I obey God's…"

Forrest Curo commented on Ellis Hein's blog post 'True Christians: How Do You Know Them?'
"Our 'innate true nature' is God's grace at work in us. Certainly we are challenging material for God to work with, but  you can't rightly say that "we" (what we think of as ourselves) is wholly that grace nor…"
