St. Paul’s Dramatic Illustration

“Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord:  for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ”  — Philippians 3:8 (KJV)

Does it seem like we fervently believe this on Sundays only to push it to the recesses of the mind the rest of the week?

    Amen, along with Paul’s description of our righteousness as being like filthy (I have heard it expounded as menstrual)rags, but great image!

    It’s difficult to view “all things” as what is pictured above but such is the call for self-denial which Christ asks, nay, demands.

    Yeah I think Isaiah (64:6)was referring to menstrual rags, at least that’s what some commentators will say. I might be preferable not to take shots of Isaiah’s illustration 🙂

  3. I don’t think I have ever seen something religious so graphically displayed.

    Interesting use of the photographic metaphor.
