In other words…

Always given to verbosity, here's what I meant in my previous post:

'I have been crucified with Christ' is profoundly ethical

'Take up your cross' is profoundly mystical

    I might have it the other way around.

    That I have joined Christ in a death like His is (for me) a mystery, since I am still walking around and breathing and taking in nourishment.

    That I take up my cross would be the right attitude. Bearing the pain and suffering in this life for the sake of my neighbor, would seem the right ethic.

    I dunno. Just thinking out loud.

    Oh yes, it's definitely the other way around too. It's just that people usually think Jesus is only being ethical and Paul is only being mystical. I want to say that both are both.
