"I am only interested in what “saint” means to God, who inspired its use. The rest is human error... As I pointed out up-thread."

That's nice, but you aren't talking to God in these threads, you are attempting to communicate with His creatures. If you want to commune with God, you don't need Free Republic or a PC to do it, if you want to communicate with other persons, you need words and a language.

There exists in human thought and reason a very direct relationship between ideas and words. In most forms of communication, words are essential to the specific expression of ideas. Language is a preexisting assumption or collective agreement on the matching of words with specific ideas. When you cloak your meanings in vague assertions of a self possessed inerrancy that you deny anyone else then you have effectively closed off communication. If that is your desire then I will no longer respond and will leave you to your tree falling in the forest exercise.

Peace be with you.

“When you cloak your meanings in vague assertions of a self possessed inerrancy that you deny anyone else then you have effectively closed off communication. If that is your desire then I will no longer respond and will leave you to your tree falling in the forest exercise.”

I think in every post you made to me on this thread, you have included an ad hominem attack or innuendo. I never respond to those because I’m commanded to love you in actions. I have done so.

I am not inerrant - ever - nor claim to be. The Scriptures are inspired by God and inerrant in the original manuscripts. This was another ad hominem attack from you.

The Bible clearly, in many places through the Apostles, addresses all Christians as saints (Gk, “holy ones”). That is a fact. It isn’t my opinion... and it isn’t vague in the slightest. Anyone objective can read it in multiple places in the Holy Bible. I posted the same up-thread, but you failed to address it after many posts. Your call. I acknowledge you have the right to respond however you wish. I also have the right not to play games as a substitute for a discussion.

Since you suggest you will no longer respond, and in light of your previous responses, I affirm that seems a good plan. To make it easier for you to keep your word, I will do the same.

I wish you the best.
