PHILIPPIANS 3:12, 15–Are Christians Perfect? Has the Apostle Paul Contradicted Himself?

Philippians 3:12 Updated American Standard Version (UASV) 12 Not that I have already obtained it or am already perfect [τελειόω teleioō], but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.

NTBDC James 5:1-6 – Are Riches a Blessing or a Curse?

Unlike many others, we are not going to deny the benefits of riches. Money is not the problem, and it is the love of money to the exclusion of our spiritual needs.

What Language Did Jesus Christ, His Apostles, and Early Christians Speak?

Jesus was likely fluent in Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, and Latin. He was a perfect human with a perfect mind, after all. Aramaic was the common language where he grew up, with Greek being the lingua franca for the Roman Empire as a whole, and Hebrew did not begin to wane in Palestine until after the destruction of Jerusalem by Rome in 70 C.E. The synagogues used the Hebrew text. Jesus could have taught in Greek at times if the need arose. However, as the article shows, it is much more complex than this, as complex as this may sound.
