As you have said, 'inspiring' is the word!
The last few posts in these two threads (yours, Peter's, and Kirk's), when taken as a tandem Truth are 'fascinating' and present in a such a clear and concise way what I have never seen done before (even in voluminous works). From where I sit, I am fully persuaded that there is very high degree of divine revelation/illumination to be found here in this place as it relates to knowing and being (and language). In short, I am incited to riot this morning in a good way and am having trouble focusing at the present based on my reading here. Yes, as well, as you have said, 'ablaze' is the word!
As far as, my take on Peter's post that you mention above, I have read Peter's follow up posts noting a sort of evolution there which is most pleasing, and presents the big picture in terms of a very heavenly balance. As Peter wrote so well:
Quote:So there is a right use of emotion, a right use of the intellect, and a right use of the spirit, and I wonder if these are often inverted in our experience? So that we become emotional or intellectual in our faith rather than being spiritual, and using the intellect and emotion under the guidance and control of the spirit for spiritual ends?
this brings into harmony both sides of the coin, if you will allow me to say it this way.
And, as you have said above:
Quote:I feel the want of a language of Christian amity, which can acknowledge difference and yet recognize the Risen Lord.
I am further driven to distraction as it relates to a consideration of a Language of Love as it relates to what is being shared at the present.
But, for now, and not for the want of words, I think it is best if I just say thank you and God bless you and the others here for being willing tools in the hands of God.
I think once again we see there are blessings for those who endure!
