So, what part of a whole number, encompassing all there is, do you not comprehend?

Here is a short, pithy statement containing a truth, known as an aphorism, see if you can figure it out:

"You are all alone; when left to your own thoughts."
You should heed your own philosophy. I have a community of believers I go to, and the Holy Spirit works in all of us, as one body....in Christ.
I heed Christ.

Yet he describes himself as "the worst of sinners"? Why do you suppose that is? (1 Tim 1:15-16)

I heed Christ.
The Christ you believe in would not even recognize Himself in your beliefs. Watch out for the "Depart from me . . ." my brother.

Knowing what God intends for us to become, gives meaning and purpose to this life now.
Until, all come in unity, of the faith, of the knowledge, of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature, of the fullness, of the Christ.

"Come, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest; learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

I will take my chances over your new age philosophy any day.

The worst of sinner, that became a saint, by belief in Christ.
Your point is mute....still.

So the living... though dead will live. So all NON-believers (dead) become believers (living).. Just like Saul/Paul did.

It's not moot.
