You can tell if people are following Jesus, instead of following PEOPLE who follow Jesus, because they are the ones who are feeding others and sharing their wealth. (from Plan B: further thoughts on faith by Anne Lamont)

It must be a both/and, or else Paul would never have made the statement that he did in 1 Corinthians 11:1, or 4:16,17 for that matter. It seems to be a biblical principle that “flesh” must always incarnate “word;” it was the case with Jesus, and is the case with us today as well.

Great one-liner. By the way, Paul was a great guy and all, but he weren’t no Jesus. I read a lot of Paul’s work; he was one of the greatest missionaries who ever lived. And since that’s my job … well, you get the point. But I’m totally against the whole deification of Paul. Some mistakenly follow him more than they follow the words of Christ. And didn’t he also write to the Corinthians concerning that very matter? (I Corinthians 3:1-6) I’m not accusing you of that, Will; I was just sayin’. 😉

as long as these same people don’t start seeing themselves as better than the ones who aren’t really living it – then their spirituality becomes a source of pride

I am a born again Christian saved by God’s grace through the faith that He gave me. Christ payed the ultimate sacrafice for our transgessions while we were still His enemy. The strange thing is I did not see anyone talk about sin or repentance.
