Yes lol. About like that.

If I may, I think a better Scripture more directly getting to what Prass is saying is in the first chapter of 2 Peter:
Maybe so.. I may have misunderstood.
Not to give our RC brethren more ammo, but I think this passage just might be the best claim for Peter's supremacy. What aspect of the Gospel was not just addressed? That lays things pretty bare!
I don't see where you get that (claim for P's S).. or did you mean just the part in red?

Hi Ray.
Amen... Hebrews, I believe.
TBH I was speaking of everything we consider.
We must be looking through the spiritual eyes...
We are "new creations" in Christ and we are
now very important 'assets' in the kingdom.
(I use that word loosely)

Jesus was here in His physical body,
Now WE are His "physical" body...


So as the Head (Jesus) leads, we follow.
(As Christ is in this world.. so are we.)
And we do have the "mind" of Christ..

ANY decision we make, no matter how seemingly
trivial, could be a huge one and so it's essential
that we hear His voice.
(IIRC you are Calvinist and so this may offend
your sensibilities if so, sorry)
Anyhow, this is why we go to the throne of Grace
continually, not just for peace and fellowship,
not just to worship and adore, but also to get
our Spirit on

Anyhow.. this is how it all works for ME in MY life.
For you, it may be totally different
God is way bigger than the sum of our thoughts lol.

Nothing against our OP, but this conversation just can't really take place w/o our Sister, Fireinfolding. Anybody know if she like took a vacation or something? Otherwise I fear she's away because she's in a world of hurt.

As usual, you're not striking a note of discord but helping me develop my point. Our body has eyes, and in a manner of speaking there's no reason to think our soul and spirit don't have eyes too. In that sense, we could think of our Spirit's "eyes" as Faith, and certainly that affects everything. The only variable is our awareness. And as usual, there's a song that expresses this better than I ever could:

Perish the thought! I did examine Calvinism upon discovering CF, as nowhere else have I ever encountered anyone willing to admit they follow his teachings. There was a thread in TAW where all the EO's were essentially recoiling in horror at a Calvinist interacting in a thread there, which is one of the things that drew me to consider their POV, along w/ consistently dynamite contributions from them in our Outreach after I had been pretty much the lone Christian voice in NCR.

Nope, no difference at all. Unity! Here's one of my hallmark verses:

"Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. Acts 4:14 And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it."

I haven't begun whipping that on Mr FaithPleases yet
