In today’s video we talk about a little something I call the Principles of Study, these are the guidelines that I use while studying and that will guide out study of the Story of the bible going forward.
This week the two Furnace member whose hearts aren’t as hard as their names discussed how to tell the difference between being blessed by God and being a beneficiary of someone being blessed by God, what it looks like to walk in the Will of God and the price of being a missionary.
You may have heard this week that the legendary Stan lee passed away, at the ripe old age of 95.
Characters he created have influenced people the world over and we talk about how much that influence was on us and how much influence we’re having on others

For the most part, ask anyone what the one thing they would change in their past is and their answer would be, nothing, everything that’s happened thus far has led to who they are now and their happy with that. But Bobby A was having none of that today so we really do try to delve into things that we would actually change if we were given the ability to do so. Bobby also had a couple of episodes of not doing what God had told him to do and seeing God do it through someone else so he also brought that up with hopes we’d help him feel better about it.

where I’d say;
Most people think I’m actually more white than red, gold, and green
