speaking of blah, blah, blah...:toady: Addressing flesh and blood, a saved meat-bag's perspective-
TLDR - God's clue to me- "If you aren't rebelling against your own flesh and blood, you aren't rebelling. Don't embarrass yourself, tough guy."
POWER over what, ultimately? :)
Power over "my life" direction, stuff I want to believe affects "my" flesh and blood. ;)
Not knowing about the specific clinic bomber you are referring to- I can only say he was probably driven by concerns for flesh and blood.
No rep necessary, I ripped it from Jesus and the Bible. Word made flesh. Concept made flesh. Perfect Love crucified by POWER hungry:), scared, proud men. Death is the price of life it seems. Jesus crucified, satisfies the market price. Jesus risen, is the hope that ties it all together. Flesh and blood says Jesus didn't pay the price because nothing is free in this world and no one gets out alive... yet here is this concept that has changed man for the better. Self sacrifice. Undeserved love. Grace. Agape, etc. The no one gets out alive part is true, and that naturally shoots any hope immediately in the foot. ...yet here is this concept that provides for an out. Something for free, and something that once truly grasped, spreads. Persecute it, and it'll spread against all earthly odds.
