2019 03 31: Paul's New Perspective

The apostle Paul is trying to tell us something, show us something, that by definition is impossible for us to see with our own eyes.  He’s not just telling us to see something in a different light; from a different point of view; to put yourself in someone else’s shoes.  That’s hard enough but with effort it can be done.  No: Paul is telling us that we are to regard “no one from a human point of view.”  Let alone trying to see things from the perspective of another person—he’s saying, the problem is the human point of view!  The perspective of human beings living in the world—that’s what’s all wrong, he says.  You see, there is now a new creation—everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!
