It is a healthy mark of a person's search for truth when he or she seeks advice and understanding from others. The Proverbs continually speak of this. "He that answers a matter before he hears it, it is folly and shame unto him." (Prov. 18:15). "Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counselors they are established." (Prov. 15:22). These principles keep one from extreme tangents and conclusions.
Bro. Gables spends a good amount of time as a consultant answering individual doctrinal and personal inquiries on various subjects. He often does research papers in response to such inquiries. These inquiries may include questions concerning certain teachings, teachers, practices, organizations, or problems people are facing on the job, in the marriage, or in their spiritual lives. He also conducts this ministry by means of telephone, e-mail, or personal contact as time may allow. Feel free to take advantage of this ministry.
