Now those years teaching in Roanoke, without knowing really what I was really doing, I was studying the Bible. Thank goodness Dad had a great library of great books and I really loved reading them. I spend a lot of time reading the Bible and reading those who knew the Bible.
Then I went to seminary and there I learn that preaching was not teaching. I did learn a lot what the Bible. Well what they said about the Bible, but they never gave me the tools to study the Bible, because that was not the right way to study and preach.
Well for the next few churches I was in churches where the pastor did not preach verse by verse and therefore I just taught what ever. From 1970 to 1982.
It was not until 1982 that I got back on tract with teaching the bible as I did when I was in high school.
