Wherefore, my beloved...
work out your own salvation
with fear and trembling.
I've been to Costco about a zillion times so far this year and they're still not carrying salvation.
I've checked Amazon. No luck.
So I asked Paul and he seems to think salvation requires work. And fear. And trembling.
So I have to work. And I take it from that "fear and trembling" bit that said work must be done under the auspices of somebody somewhat intimidating?
In my REB, this is how Paul is translated:
- You must work out your own salvation
in fear and trembling;
for it is God who works in you,
inspiring both the will and the deed,
for his own chosen purpose.
It seems a reasonable request.
