💚💚💚 to me this Clarity is so extraordinarily empowering. I find that potential meaning of my life and therefore my potential Joy is increased by some substantial multiple by understanding this. It's like the gates to a prison have opened.
If James has ever made a contribution then it would probably be realizing the error of this last word this thousands of years. Possibly Jesus misspoke, most likely he was misquoted. As you would have them do untoyou is exactly bringing everything back to selfishness. As you would have them do unto others, it's the kingdom of Loving on earth building that he devoted his life to and led us to do the same. So much makes sense now which could not make sense without this word correction of the last word in the sentence. So many doors open, so many possibilities now.
Michael, Michael, my friends, asked if this came from another author or from myself? My reply:
Historical evidence? Oh I would love to know. Far and Away the most reliable scholar to me is Tolstoy. That extraordinary soul immersed himself in the original Greek text. But I am unaware of him recognizing anything like this. But I will be looking more carefully.
And maybe it is a new insight that all of them would approve of, I'm sure they would approve of it. I would rather find in the scholarship that it is an error because that would be stronger and more useful and more immediate.
