"People cannot learn by having information pressed into their brains. Knowledge has to be sucked into the brain, not pushed in. First, one must create a state of mind that craves knowledge, interest, and wonder. You can teach only by creating an urge to know."
-Victor Weisskopf

We must create an urge to know in our students. If we do that, if we invite the Spirit of the Lord into our meetings, the students will be touched. They will find that their minds are craving a knowledge that only the Spirit can bring and they will be edified. This is our purpose, to bring the souls of man to Christ. It can only be effectively done when that urge to know Him is created and the Spirit is present to teach. No matter what words we may say as teachers, whether they be plain and simple or flowery, they will be ineffective in changing the hearts of our students without an urge for knowledge from heaven and the presence of the Holy Spirit to testify of the truthfulness and to teach them the mysteries of God.
