*DISCLAIMER: THIS WORK REFLECTS MY ATTEMPT TO PARAPHRASE THE GOSPEL OF JOHN FOR MY OWN WITNESSING. I SHARE IT WITH THE NOTE THAT, WHILE SOMETIMES INSIGHTFUL, IT IS SOMETIMES MISGUIDED AND POTENTIALLY HARMFUL IF NOT VIEWED IN SUBMISSION TO A MORE DEVELOPED BIBLICAL THOUGHT PROCESS. THOUGH IT WAS A PART OF MY SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT, I DO NOT CONSIDER THIS A COMPLETELY DEVELOPED BIBLICAL TEACHING. UNTIL I TAKE TIME TO RECONSIDER CERTAIN POINTS, I WOULD NOT USE IT AS ANYTHING MORE THAN AN INTERESTING HISTORICAL NOTE OF MY DEVELOPMENT.
