J.John, one of Phil Baker's good friends, spoke at Hillsong church on Sunday night.I didn't get to hear his message, but these are the comments responding to a post from Phil's blog.
I got to hear J. John last night at Hillsong and thought he was great. My teenage daughter had a friend who came with her brother who wanted to come because he was doing a Psychology/Geography project on "How Religion is changing the environment in Australia". I was a bit worried because I thought a uni project might not be a very good way to get someone to hear the gospel (in too much of the outside observer role so unable to respond personally). In the end I was very glad J. John was speaking. He was very clear and not too weird. Good for an atheistic uni student. The brother said he had lots to process afterwards. That's good! Anyway I found J. John very encouraging myself so thanks for organising it Phil.
Yeah he was really good. Me and a friend didn't know how to take him at first - but one illustration he used was so powerful. He brings a very clear perspective to the gospel somthing that is a miss in some sermons. Although he did break one of our mics!!! hahah that was pretty funny....... he really inspired me with a back to basic's gospel not layering the truth with "christianese" or the modern way of over explaining the explained.
Yeah he was awesome... really funny.... he had had such a build up that i came so expetant and pumped ya know and yeah he fufilled that expectancy... he was funny but as igotforgiven said he made some really really powerful points.... it was a really powerful simplistic message. It was a great end to a fantastic weekend as we had our youth conference encounterfest.... im always sooo greatful for the awesome speakers that come to our church... and this weekend was one of the best with Pastor Judah and then J.John. it was awesome
hey hey, MR John was an amazing talker. For some odd reason I have no difficulties at all believing that Phil and he are friends. WOuld find it interesting to be a fly on the wall of any conversations you two have.
