Bill, Al Epting's sister and brother-in-law here. Al told us you used our photos this past Sunday and mentioned us. It sounds like you did some wonderful research on Caesarea Philippi yourself. We've just now had an opportunity to listen to this sermon. Bless you for your boldness about Truth in love and, in that spirit, stood firm regarding the sin of gay marriage as God's Word calls us to do. Well done in saying it's just a different kind of sin from sin that we all commit but still standing firm instead of engaging in the appalling political correctness of our culture today. Here's an additional thought regarding the sadness you were feeling about gay marriage a couple of weeks ago and, oddly enough, relative to Caesarea Philippi and the words of Jesus in Matthew 16 and the rock formation there that you mentioned in the sermon: Although evil abounds in our world, especially moreso in recent days it seems, the hope we have is that the evil from the underworld (that is, Gates of Hell) "WILL NOT PREVAIL"! Almighty God was and is and will in the future be the ultimate victory over that evil through the blood sacrifice of His Son and the power of their Holy Spirit who resurrected Jesus from death - what we are celebrating this weekend. We're surely not telling you anything you didn't already know, but the glorious connection is the hope we have when staring at the Gates of Hell and pondering evil in the world and how depressed that can make us feel until we recall with gratitude our Anchor of Hope. Blessings and Shalom! Trapper & Fae Davidson
