There are a lot of people who want better doorknobs without figuring out how to get a door. A doorknob is useless without a door. If we have faulty thought patterns, we remain confused and will never find what we are looking for. In fact, we can unknowingly prevent ourselves from finding it and then complain that it doesn’t exist.

Brethren say that we cannot use denominational books and materials but then fail to understand where those materials come from. We refuse to support sound brethren to write full-time to produce scholarly works. Then we lament the lack of great books written by brethren.

I don’t understand this at all. Why can’t people make the connections here? I have been wondering this for many years and I still don’t have an answer.

Why can’t we allow qualified brethren to write full-time to produce quality writing? How can we convert the world if we do not have the books, tracts and materials to teach? If we refuse to do it, our only options are to use the writing of false teachers, which we cannot do.

This is called a vicious circle that goes nowhere.
