I very much enjoy many of your posts, and admire your perseverance in thinking about difficult issues. I'd like to be more encouraging and responsive, but perhaps the best things I can do would be first to remind you how difficult it is to understand what you write, and then to encourage you to keep most posts to just one or two issues and to more carefully choose and review your words.

Recently I've made two very helpful life style changes that I encourage you to consider. I now keep my pocket dictionary right next to the chair I like to read in (I don't even have to stand up to reach it). And when I read a word I'm not sure of, even if I'm too lazy to look it up (or don't want to interrupt my reading), I mark a little circle in the margin to remind me the word was difficult, and also write the word and page number on the last page of the book, to remind me to check it the next time I feel like checking a word.

My pocket d- defines fervent as passionate
ardent
hot
glowing
from Latin fervere, to glow (or boil)

Don't you wish they would just say here's the most common, most traditional definition? And leave it at that.

Best regards, keep writing and thinking. Was your primary question here whether Christians (all or just a few) are making progress ascending to Divine Power and God's Kingdom even while still on earth? I think most of us hope for this and seek it, try Archbishop Emile Guerry's In the Whole Christ. Are we succeeding? Maybe if we are consistently sharing Love, Peace, Hope, Faith, and Joy.

If you’ll notice, throughout this thread I sustained a self-inflicted kicking around; beginning with the lament to compel being more expectant to what it is now, more tolerant and sensitive to God’s choosing.

Neither those whom have strove to reap nor those who are content with “quiet and peaceable lives” have cause to advise the other in contrary remarks.

On the dictionary, I too have one, the old Franklin battery-powered (much faster) pocket-size is a dictionary and a five language translator too.

I figure I may as well benefit some from technology (still holding off getting that dumb smart phone).

Seeking apparently doesn't always know when to acknowledge the right combination, but then, everyone experiences this, sometimes and to some degree.

The supernatural is merely things beyond the natural or rather what WE see as natural, all things that are hard to explain are easily understood by the mind of God. Is it important that we understand that some things are not explainable by the mind of man and accept that limitation and simply live the life and understanding that IS available to us.
