I’m sure you’re right.
I don’t know much about the dad except what Joel’s told in his preaching.
Sounds like he may have been slightly more . . . well rounded in his preaching yet still overwhelmingly positive. Joel seems to have carried the positive focus to another level.
I admire him for carrying forward his father’s Biblical vision and focus to greater heights. Many sons would have bastardized it horribly or fumbled it horribly or both.

I watched his dad about 20 yrs ago. I was watching, listening, reading to alot - was very hungry. He was good and he was born into poverty. I'm sure Joel spoke about his father's beginnings.
Yes. Anything else is giving a foothold to you know who! Been there, done that! I was one of - 'my people suffer for a lack of knowledge'.
