Many years before he lost his vocal cords to cancer and went home to be with his Savior, Pastor Richard Wood gave this teaching on John Chapter 15 in Seneca Falls, NY. Many in Christ have thought that this passage means that if a believer does not abide in Christ, hold on to their standing in the Vine, they may be tossed into the fire and burned eternally. This is just not the case. In memory of Pastor Wood, listen to his sermon on the True Vine.
