What are things that accompany salvation? As walking after the flesh is different from walking after the Spirit, we can rightly see from what they are really after. Is it to be transformed from glory to glory in the things they have suffered without losing hope or those who seek material advantages?  We already came across this Pauline dictum, ‘For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.’ Jesus has given us a definition: “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?/ Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit./ A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit./ Every tree that…

He sent them off exhorting ‘Go, and do thou likewise (Lk.10:37)’;Instead of seeking truth and living by it many of them went back as if they had not heard. Some stopped following him complaining,’That was a hard saying.’

St James spoke indeed of them,” For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:/ For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was(Jas.1:23-24)”…
