“1. Jesus said, “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your
Father in heaven is perfect” (telios) Matthew 5:48.
2. A typical reaction: `Now isn’t that silly? No one is perfect!’
3. But would Jesus command his disciples to do what is impossible?”
Then he said:
“Perfection in the sense of faultlessness is unattainable.”
The definition of “Perfection” IS faultlessness. Being whole and complete, loving both your friends and your enemies, doesn’t mean you are perfect. If you are not without fault or flaw, then by definition, you are not perfect.
