Jhn 21:22 Jesus said to him, "If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? Follow me!
Jhn 21:23 The saying spread abroad among the brethren that this disciple was not to die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he was not to die, but, "If it is my will that he remain until I come, WHAT IS THAT TO YOU?" (WE are not God and can sometimes use a reminder to leave some things to HIM ONLY).
God does not ask or expect us to understand, approve/judge, agree with, or second-guess Him. In fact, He does tell us that being Godly means to mind our own business, not just for the sake of peace among the brethren, but that we should also learn to respect God's sovereingty and to 'keep our place' (we may have spiritual ABILITIES, etc., but God has the rank of SUPREME BEING for a reason.
I find this discussion VERY interesting but I confess that I haven't been able to read EVERYTHING because I have a TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE pain in my arm.
Do not take anything I've written in the last seven years or so for granted.
