    What do people make of this Bible excerpt??

    "When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things"

    In context, Paul is talking about the use of spiritual gifts and how unconditional love must always be present in the use of them. The direct application of this verse is that using spiritual gifts for ones benefit is childish because the Corinthian church had problems with misusing spiritual gifts and this was causing division in the church. Mature believers would not have this selfishness and would be the "Man" described in this verse.

    I think that if Paul had stayed home and collected action figures, he probably wouldn't have gotten executed. There's the lesson for ya.
