Go to the LTW blog here for quotes from Martin Luther, showing that "spritual disciplines" are not enough to bring true and everlasting peace.
The world's colleges and universities, even Christian ones, cannot possibly teach wisdom, other than the wisdom of the world which will burn up one day. To fear the Lord is to lay up treasures in heaven, which will not burn. Dwayna, there is much wisdom in what you write that can only come from God and your faith in Him who gives understanding (in many things.) Your attitude and demeanor shows godly grace and compassion....not seen very often among women (and men,) college-educated or not. As you continually abide in Christ, He will direct your paths and bring to you more wisdom, knowledge, and understanding as needed in your work and sanctification. You have and are impacting many people, including me. Your example played a part in me seeking to learn how to truly study the Bible. I've done "Bible study" before, mainly following study guides like the Navigators or whatever my Sunday School class would happen to use. I've been in many different denominations over the years and often times their classes or study guides would only focus on their denominations particular nuaces, like "baptism of the Holy Spirit." But there have been times when I have gone long periods without studying or reading the Bible at all. So in March I asked Jay Wegter for suggestions on Bible study and am going from there.TimUSA
“I gave my granddaughter some materials from your table outreach when I met you last year here at your outreach at the Smoky Mountain National Park. I just wanted you to know my granddaughter read everything I gave her from your table, and she is now saved and has been baptized. Thank you for being part of God’s work in salvation to my granddaughter through your outreach materials for children. It is so nice to see you again here still doing the Lord’s work in evangelism at the Sugarlands Visitors Center, outside of Gatlinburg, TN.”SylviaCharleston, South Carolina
