Discover the Word – Session 14

In response to a question asked in a previous meeting, we started our 14th session with Dr. Mike Feazell’s  “You’re Included” video interview of Dr. Gary Deddo where the topic was on “Those Who Never Heard the Gospel.” Here it is below:


After the video presentation there was some discussion on the topic of the video after which we proceeded with the main topic for the evening. We continued with Dr. Gary Deddo’s essay on “Clarifying our Theological Vision, Part 1” and discussed the meaning of “Union with Christ.” Here’s the video for that evening which I have continued to post here since some are interested and are following us.


Thank you for joining us. Let’s continue to discover the Word of God.

Discover the Word – Session 13

Our meeting last May 19, Friday was cancelled due to my being late. I got stuck in traffic as I drove from the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) to the venue at the ReThink Community Hall in Santa Rosa, Laguna. My apologies to all.  We were able to resume our regular meeting last Friday, May 26.

Essentially  we completed the part on what is meant by “All are included” in Part 1 of Dr. Gary Deddo’s essay, Clarifying Our Theological Vision

Questions were raised on the issue of salvation and the seeming emphasis on a person’s response. Hopefully, these questions will be clarified and answered as we go along and complete reading Part 1 and Part 2 of the essay.

Here’s the video of that session. I made a mistake again — I’m a neophyte videographer haha! — and so the video will only last for about 30 minutes and the rest of the session will all be audio. Have fun listening:

Discover the Word – Session 12

To accommodate others who are interested to join our discipleship class, we have moved our regular schedule from Wednesday to Friday every 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. We had a bit more attendance than usual last Friday. So it seems like Friday is a good time to have these sessions from now on.

Last time we had just completed Part 1 of the booklet/article, The God Revealed in Jesus Christ. We were supposed to continue with Part 2 beginning last Friday but due to the importance of another topic which is fairly recent, I have decided to discuss with the class the essay of Dr. Gary Deddo on Clarifying our Theological Vision, Part 1. I just thought that this is timely and should be discussed right away. We will just continue with Part 2 of The God Revealed in Jesus Christ  at a later date.

We started last Friday’s class with prayers for those who are sick among us like: Max Fabricante and Rex Olandesca. Then I shared with the class Dr. Joseph  Tkach’s Introduction to Dr. Gary Deddo’s essay before we proceeded with the main topic. We were only able to discuss the earlier part on the subject of All are Included. The topic generated comments and questions relevant or related to the topic and without realizing it we were not even able to finish quoting and discussing all the supporting verses that were cited in the essay. One and a half hour just flew so quickly haha!

We will continue next meeting. Before we ended I shared to the group Dr. Gary Deddo’s videoclip where he discussed the topic on universalism and double predestination. I did not anymore ask the class to ask questions or make comments after the video otherwise we would have ended up at midnight haha! Here’s the video:
