Many First Shall Be Last

Aside from misuse of the title - we should note that those that accept the axiom L(G) with less knowledge of the virtues of God, (our G) are actually at an advantage to those whom know much of the virtue of God but do not hold L(G).

It is possible for a man to keep the laws of God - We know this by Christ's fulfillment of the whole law. Yet even if men place their faith in the works of the law and call themselves as "blameless under Christ", they are either at fault caught in a lie or their faith on Christ is such that Christ intercedes for them as would He for His own caught in any G v p statement.

One can keep the requirements of faith without holding L(G): L(G) is as the "essence" of faith, or the conjunction of all faith in principle. Yet in keeping the commandments it is possible to state L(X) for some gospel based on virtue or the promises of God, and to ascend a chain of "Xi" with virtues of God and "home in on" true God (G) approaching L(G) through {X&q1&q2&q3,...}

Once the whole law of faith (on God's virtue or promises) is obeyed, the result of our long chain of L(Xi) is L(G) rather than initially starting with L(G) from which "faith" would entail the believer to simply grasp that God is as "He is" in His Son. "Jesus loves me this I know, because the bible tells me so." And so forth.

This may seem like a long winded way to put the process of refinement, but only Jesus has known His Father -we each have a "mixture" of either case: (We also forget what we have read and understood).

However to those that have the benefit of scripture, if L(G) is understood (in principle to start with) without including a requirement of any "x" to entail the statement "I believe on G given x", then we would do well to conclude so. The result of many such Xi are a path full of stumbling blocks (overcoming our resistence to q1,q2,q3,...) and strongholds of our initial assumptions (our initial "x").

How many thoughts do I have as "x" or Xi? Far too many. I should take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ and ask myself not, "What would Jesus do?" but, "What does the word of God say?"

In repeating the statement of L(G) on a stumbling block (or upon a stronghold) we would do so as to consider either "L(G) alone", or "L(G) given some L(Xi)." The result then would be L(G) or L(Xi+1) respectively.

So, those with simple faith in L(G) that have done very little in actively searching out the truth of God a-priori are at a distinct advantage over those that have such strongholds and stumbling blocks that learn of God by "trial and error".

Mat 20:1 For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.
Mat 20:2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
Mat 20:3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
Mat 20:4 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.
Mat 20:5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.
Mat 20:6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?
Mat 20:7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.
Mat 20:8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.
Mat 20:9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
Mat 20:10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.
Mat 20:11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,
Mat 20:12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
Mat 20:13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
Mat 20:14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.
Mat 20:15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
Mat 20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. (KJV)

We see the penny is paid for L(G), our axiom of the "Kingdom of God" rather than rewarding the minutiae of our failings as to overcoming them one by one: The result to those that are offended is ¬L(G), or that they find fault with the law of God - and ultimately the kingdom!
