the danger of salvation and you-are-worthy-ness

Postby Fixed Cross » Sat Nov 11, 2017 1:25 am

is that it implies that you think you are unworthy.

Value ontology claims you are unworthy until you prove yourself and even then only to the one you prove it to - and yet also that you are necessarily worthy of yourself.

Your unworthiness may make you worthy of your worthless existence. Or lets say his unworthiness. The other guy. Ill just address you as worthy. Because you are connected to my existence so you must have done something worthwhile.

A quiz.

I've been guided somewhat by William Blake's quote: "I must create a system or be enslaved by another mans; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create". Just change 'system' for 'style'. - Bill

What does salvation have to do with this list of movie stars? What does worthiness?
Saved to what end? Worthy to what extent?
