I have a natural distrust of "dynamic" personalities. Really, I do. I don't trust anyone with any amount of charisma. I also don't trust women in pantsuits. Okay, I'm joking about that one (kind of).
I have never taken part in a Beth Moore bible study group and I don't plan to change that. Many women think that she is the pinnacle of holiness- "If I only I could be more like Beth Moore..." I've been invited to many and always politely claimed inability to make it to the meeting- which is completely true. That, however is not the main reason I say no. I don't attend because I study the Scriptures on my own. Just me and the Holy Spirit of God, and oftentimes my husband. We talk about what we've read, we look up Greek words, we sometimes start on one subject and end up somewhere else altogether. I prefer this method to using someone else's thoughts and "points to ponder". When actually taking an active part in a Bible study, I interact more with God. I don't just sit and listen to someone else talk about interacting with God. And one of these days, I'm going to tell someone that when I am asked why I never come to the meetings. For now, I'm just telling you, here in this confidential blog post.
Now that that is out of the way, would anyone be interested in studying the Bible with me? My thought is just that we would read the same parts and compare notes- at least that is how I always start. Then if God leads us in another direction, so be it.
I'm also wondering if anyone has any thoughts on any of the other women who have written books about being a Godly woman.
