    Wow… Interesting! Chad surrounded by a Hindu boss, a Mormon evangelist, WWC evangelist, new age movement lady, and not to forget a Jehovah witness guy 😉 … you must have been really confused as u said 🙂 God bless you sir. Go strong in the Lord!

    Chad Meister seems like such a great guy. I'm not persuaded by evidentialism, am Reformed and disagree on various metaphysical issues with Chad, yet I think I would love to spend a few hours discussing things with him over a cup of coffee. I love his passion for Christ.
