Offering your life of flesh for others to learn from you is not 'whimpy'. There is not a more faithful act in the world, but often confused and
misused to gain power instead of displaying a love for the unit of the world.
It is the hardest question to answer truthfully. Mabey you chose not to understand it because you can not get past the idea of the righteous actions
this demands of you.
My point was not stating that man was to be perfect...but that is no excuse to not see what a divine nature truly is. Its comfortable for people to
think Jesus will come fix things or that God wont allow all of this to continue. So many talk the talk but wont walk the walk, they wait on Jesus to
come do it again.
I do think more is expected of us. I do believe and have hope that we as a whole unit on this planet are capable of much more then what we are
I could tell you that the Holy Spirit shows me these things...but you can assume its all just random assumptions.
People couldn't understand it back then when he offered his life of flesh and most still do not get it now. Excuses have been made for his actions of
righteousness, such as a need for the blood sacrifice or the coming back of Jesus to bring back the God of the OT.
Ill rephrase question 1
1. Can you remain like Christ and lay down your life as a lesson of love for others?
The most humble teaching is not about sacrifice, a forceful nature...but an offering, a willing nature.
