He also praises
this hymn, while still making the case for Cessationism and rejecting the idea of God actually engaging with believers directly:
In the Garden
I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses.
And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.
He speaks, and the sound of His voice,
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.
I’d stay in the garden with Him
Though the night around me be falling,
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling.
The guy is all over the map, he regularly contradicts himself and the gospel, especially
when it comes to the gospel. So take what he says with a grain of...no, just ignore what that man says.
God's grace is not cheap; it's free.
