Michael went to be with the Lord on February 14, 2015. He considered this his favorite hangout. I know he would have wanted to leave you an explanation for his lack of activity on this site.

Software Developer, part-time pastor, and I raise chickens. Who can't love a chicken?

For Christianity.stackexchange.com, my religious background:

  • Grew up in a Protestant, evangelical, nondenominational "Bible Church" (-1990)
  • earned a M.Div at a Baptist Seminary (2008) and pastored a very small Baptist church (2004 - 2008)
  • Served in an Episcopal Church, and yes I did that site. (2008 - 2013)
  • Back to a Baptist church that has a true passion for breaking down the barriers of church so as to focus on the original mission of the church - namely to bring Jesus to a dying world.

@AaronKorn the phrase is unforgivable sin, not unforgettable, and it refers to blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, not homosexual behavior

Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. As it stands, I don't really see how this answers the question. The question specifically asked about John 6, and that is completely unhandled.
