Some interesting thoughts from a man who’s run the religious gamut. He’s very good at examining those questions we tend to stuff away…, he pulls them out, studies them, and calls what he sees. The conclusions he comes to usually fit.
“…II Corinthians 3 is a repudiation of living by the gramma – the written or inscribed text. Paul’s “not under the law” means not under gramma/ graphe/torah!
