    When I ministered at the Tennessee State Prison in Nashville's Death Row, I never needed a License. I actually ministered to a particular death row inmate and saw the Lord take him off of death row. A real conversion and born again believer experience that was similar to mine.

    If I’m understanding Brother Douglas Summers correctly, he is basically saying there is one way; the narrow gate to the kingdom, and that regardless one’s religious education. John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress made such an example of those coming from the city of Vain-glory going to mount Zion having not entered through the narrow gate.

    Gal 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
    Gal 5:26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory,
    What was the yoke of bondage we are warned of in Gal 5:1?

    Amen!
    And that's how we got T.U.L.I.P. and Darbyism (Rapture/dispensations etc.) and the Prosperity Gospel and Cheap Grace and all the rest of the rather simple deviations from the Gospel of Christ.
    People who struggled reading Fun With Dick and Jane in the 1st grade think they're qualified theologians and Th.D.s who need to write another book so they can get their names out there and appear relevant, make up some new interpretation. (like: "Feminist Liberation Theology" oi veh!)
