The more I see my prior life from Scripture’s viewpoint, the more I see my need to repent.
Today I’m publicly repenting of having Bible study with a stuffed animal! This is quite embarrassing, but alas, I did follow this direction in 2004. I actually bought a stuffed bear from the campus shop. I had two Bible studies with it. And I reported these as real Bible studies, as if they were college students.
I used to defend my prior organization by saying that kind of weird stuff happened only in the 1970’s. All the while I was denying the fact that I was propagating the same flawed ideas. But I had to produce numbers somehow, and that was one solution I was given.
