Tuesday, 24th: Inmate Lance T…, age 54, wrote on August 6, 2021: “Greetings Fellow Christians, Good afternoon! I am enjoying your Bible studies. I am learning lots! A big thanks to you. I was saved on November 6, 2019. It’s my understanding that it is my duty, as a Christian, to try to reach the lost and correct my brothers. There are these friends of mine who are opposed to work and they sell drugs. They are believers and under the impression that as long as they believe in God and pray everything will be okay. I tell them they may still go to heaven, but they are going to be punished here on earth. Am I telling them the truth? Won’t they pay? One guy’s father was a drug dealer his entire life, spending about 12 years in prison. Now he is doing it. What do you recommend I tell them? Thanks for your time.” (3 helpful documents sent with his next studies on 8.18.21) Praise God – “So know in your heart that just as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you.” (Deuteronomy 8:5)!
