These are the results of a study on discipleship I put together for the Beatty Community Church, originally as a night class, then as part of the adult Sunday school. These notes are not in their final form and the degree of ‘finished-ness’ varies.
Some of the quotes used in these notes were obtained from http://www.christianglobe.com/Illustrationsand http://www.watchword.org, and others through my own reading. Please note that the various quotes by various Christian leaders, pastors, and teachers does not imply an endorsement of everything they taught or believed. For example, I quote Watchman Nee in some areas where he has very good insight, but he also has some very dangerous teachings. Always test what man has written (including what I’ve written here) by God’s word, the Bible. No human is infallible.
I have also included the following extended quotations:
“Methods Of Bible Study”, by R. A. Torrey
“Spiritual Gifts Inventory” based on K. C. Kinghorn’s Discovering Your Spiritual Gifts.
I plan on including “Finding God’s Will” from Viggo Olsen’s book Daktar, Diplomat In Bangladesh when/if I receive permission from the author.
All scripture quotations are from the New King James version.
