THAT'S the scripture I was looking for! Thanks :-)

I couldn't even remember sufficient words to search for it, but I knew the principle of doing in order to understand was clearly and succinctly stated somewhere!

Thanks :-)

Here's another great example that turns the head-to-feet mentality on its... um... head:

I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. (Philemon 1:6)

It's feet before head again!



Solid. Thanks :-)

What would you say in this regard to someone who quoted to you that we are to be "transformed by the renewing of our minds"?

I would say that the mind is important, and that God is very concerned about how we think... but the fact that our minds are in a process of renewal should give us extra caution when we try to rely on them over-much! We do not yet understand in full, so if I only obey what I understand then the implications are that I only have a partial obedience too!

The renewal of the mind is not achieved by intellectual endeavour, but though a walk of obedience to the Spirit.

But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil. Heb 5:14

Couldn't agree more!

I love hearing old addages picked apart. So often I haven't heard the old addages and so I don't immediately understand where people are coming from when they're struggling. This is really helpful.

Superb Chris! I've grown frustrated with folk trying to spin Jesus' parable technique as pedagogical brilliance. It was brilliant in the sense it was inspired, but it wasn't a technique employed to create well-received instruction. For that to occur (and it's debatable that it ever did before Pentecost) the give and take of a close relationship with the disciples was necessary.

Absolutely Chris: as Mary said to the servents at the wedding in Cana, "whatever he says to you, do it."

I have learnt the most profound laws of the Spirit by doing first and then seeing the results in my life.
