Pr. Will,

Wow. This was just the point being made by one of the people attending my bible study on Romans last night.

Thanks, I will share this quote with her.

Maximos is a hoot and half. There's so much there, and he's so darned difficult to understand, but then he strew gems like that along the way that even *I* can get! Glad it chimed in to what you all were discussing.
