Why I do believe you are correct sir that horse is dead. However, there is the small matter of removing the sticks from the hands of the beaters. Of which I for one am more than interested in how it will be done. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bigglasses.gif" alt="" />
Everyone has sticks. Some beat with more melody than others do to the Scriptures. As Saul kicked against the pricks of his day so do all of us today kick against our denominational, historical, and biased understandings of certain things. Even after salvation only the Damascus road will change any of us (i.e. Jesus and the Scriptures). As usual, these discussions get somewhat emotional, but I think fruit still comes from them. Changes come: Iron sharpens iron. We all wrestle at Jabbok and hang on to all we think we know saying, "I will not let thee go, except thou bless me." Then when Truth is more fully revealed we limp out in victory with a fuller understanding (Eph 1:18).
