Of course, it's an impossible standard for us to keep, which is why we need Christ, but it's the minimum that GOD requires. GOD never lowers His standards to accommodate people and neither should we.
this is also true...but its staggeringly beyond my capability.
in the church building one is in a likeminded environment....outside of the building, the heathen complicate matters...I can truely see why the Contemplatives would go into a Monastic Foundation, and never come out!!
