Hello Howard. I am going to try to copy your retort to Rose's statement. There is indeed much meaning beyond the first, second or third reading of scripture and each time I read, I have more and more truth revealed, taught by the HOlySpirit. * I come from a long line of free masons, excluding my father who refused and is the only male in his family who rejected the membership. * Believing my testimony sound, I should like to read your understanding and pray upon it. Dear Rose is a scriptorian in her own right and has taught me much. Discussion rather than contention always brings light to the discerning. CactusLil'.
