Seems like another story. The way I'd break it down to them is that there is the corporeal, granted identity by the soul, and predestined by the spirit. The interrelation of these is both continous and distinct. They can choose to be offended all they want.LuciferX you're right in a distinct sense. A lot of mystics claim that the soul is without inherent gender. It's most common in reincarnation mythology, which I suspect most of the early church held as doctrine until the meddling of Theodora under Emperor Justinian.. I think. Would have to go double check. See if karmic laws still applied after one's "salvation" then a bunch of imperial debauchery starts to make one seem... insincere spiritually. Look up "monophysite heresy" for more.Right-on. I find this very interesting. Without leveraging the political aspect, perhaps we might invoke Tertullian to reconcile the whole mono-dyo disjunction with a dose of trinitarian doctrine, which would tend toward resolving these differences in a synthesis that perhaps even radically changes the very nature of "before and after", as it also may have done to above and below.
Don't know anything about Tertullian. Also... I'm sketchy about trinities. I just got out of a long term relationship with one and I'm leery about diving back in so soon. I'm still a little sore about it.
