Unlocking The Authority From Within: Open_Notes 4

Christ taught "living ideas" NOT dogma; a *living* faith; dogma is death; [G2198 zao, AV live, be alive, alive, quick, lively; 1) to live, breathe, be among the living (not lifeless, not dead) 2) to enjoy real life i.e. to have true life and worthy of the name; active, blessed, endless in the kingdom of God 3) to live i.e. pass life, in the manner of the living and acting; of mortals or character 4) living water, having vital power in itself and exerting the same upon the soul 5) metaph. to be in full vigor; to befresh, strong, efficient, as adj. active, powerful, efficacious]. -- the Gospel was built on a *sure foundation* (the OT, the group identity existent) and the communitarian message must be built on the same [as attempted in the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence (a reflection of the biblical ideals)]; we must see beyond our doubts; we must seek understanding; the "Logos" vs. the logo's [the corporate_logos (logo-type, a distinctive company signature, trademark, set of letters, or word, etc.); Logos n., Gr. Philos., reason, thought of as constituting the controlling principle of the universe and as being manifested by speech; 2 Christian Theol., the eternal thought or word of God, made incarnate in Jesus Christ].
