JD, I do wish you would have left out the syllogistic format in your first post. It's a darn good question and I would have enjoyed seeing it discussed. Unfortunately this has just become a 'I can logic higher than you' contest and we will never know the answer to your question.
I think we will learn who has the least amount of patience soon. I'll probably close it at that point and we can start again.
Remember everyone, God gave us logic and reason to make the scriptures MORE understandable, not more complex and abstruse. Unfortunately the logic text books rarely deal with winning people, only winning arguments.
JD asked a question about logic. . . .
David, duly noted.
Following Bob's lead, let's get to a more fruitful track. I think the questions are these:
Is Self-Love commanded? Or is it assumed to be innate in everybody?
Probably a new thread is in order. I'm off for a meeting, and I'll be out of the loop until bedtime.
