I think what concerns me is how many not so great teachers are out there. We all remember our friend Paul Cohen. Now if someone wants to be obscure, that's their right. But for me personally, if I can't establish who they are and what their statement of faith is, in a simple concise bio page, or if I have to ask around, I'm just going to have to move on. And in that process, maybe miss out on something. I love listening to my pastor's testimony. He ran from God for nine years after he received his initial calling. He was still a Las Vegas casino card dealer for many years after he finally answered the calling. It's not one of those overnight success stories. It's a wonderful testimony for someone like me, receiving a calling as I'm inching towards 50. I personally don't want a calling, but it seems to be there nonetheless. (I mainly don't want it because I'm lazy selfish). As far as Arnold Murray goes, I started watching his show 10 years ago, when I received my initial calling, so I have a personal understanding of who he is and what he teaches. However, the idea seems to be that you have to get to get to know him real well, before you have a clear idea of where he's coming from. So, maybe this is just a personal pet peeve of mine. But I truly like the fact that the two main instructors God lead me to, are both an open book. No guesswork involved. No trying to shade their past. I always laugh at what Tommy Bertoli said regarding anyone challenging his authority. "Who gave you authority to teach?" "God! God gave me the authority! I was minding my own business dealing cards!" And for me, it's like if God can do that with an average Joe card dealing stick ball player from Brooklyn, he can do it with me too, if that's His will. So, nothing against L. Ray or Arnold. I just hate playing guessing games, or have to rely on someone else's take on someone, instead of being able to just read it for myself up front, in their own words. If I were to start expounding on my life story to the generalpublic, being a security guard at the moment, no one would give a rat's tail. If I were to become a public teacher, then I think it would matter.
