Why 1 Peter 3:21, sometimes with Romans 1:16 and 2 Corinthians 7:10 and Romans 10:10 and Hebrews 5:9, but hardly ever with Titus 2:11 or 1 Thessalonians 5:9 or Philippians 2:12? And almost never Luke 10:27-28 or Luke 12:33 or Mark 10:29-30 or John 12:25?
Who gets to decide which? Elders? Preachers? All of us? And why do we decide the way we do?
And what does it say about us when we choose the weekly over the daily, the easy over the difficult, the traditional over the Christ-like, the exclusive-of-others over the inclusive-of-others, the silent over the expressed, the selfish over the selfless?
