The question this raises is whether or not Romans 12
or 1 Peter fit this sense. And having brought this to
our attention, I would now say that 1 Peter is a
potential candidate for this meaning, while Romans 12
is not, since I think the service Paul has in mind
here is one all too real. I shall like to examine this
usage TWN LOGIKWN PROBATWN TOU CRISTOU in its entirety
(context). Thanks for giving something worthwhile to
do today :o)
