Dwayna, Thank you so much for answering my questions so quickly. You answered my questions pertaining to the Council of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood views. You posted an article on your website that allowed me see the truth of where CBE stands. I would have never known what their true position was, had it not been for you. Thank you. You helped me to understand the danger of taking sides. These two organizations have been battling it out for years, even bringing the Trinity into it, to support their debates! I'm not taking sides with either of these two groups. I'm going to stay focused on what God commands us to do, and that is spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love to read all your articles; they are so informing, and I have a safe place to go and get an objective second opinion. I really do hope I meet you someday. Well...I'm most certain I will. :- ) Thanks again, Dwayna, you really encourage me to be steadfast and strong about my beliefs. I will be pressing on. The article you emailed me today was so uplifting. Love and many blessings,MelaniePA, USA
The Venice Beach mission, Lighting The Way, is an oasis following the Bible’s teaching to go out into the market place bearing witness. It shows that impressive buildings and fine clothes are not needed, for His love is everywhere. It gives hope to the fainthearted... and guidance to people who have lost their way, and to those who have never encountered the true word of God, LTW gives the inspiration to go and find out more about Him. The mission helps us to see that God and His love are all around us.ValerieEngland
