St. Paul's usage of "Energy" in the Scripture
« on: September 06, 2013, 07:10:27 PM »
I have heard it many times being said that St. Paul talks about "energy" many times in the Holy Scriptures.

Can someone quote me some specific verses where St. Paul used the Greek word "energia" to refer to "energy"?
This profile is defunct as of 11/8/2017. I created it before Orthodoxy, and have used it after Orthodoxy.

I reject all that I wrote that isn't in accordance with the teachings of the Orthodox Church. Also, my posts reflect my opinions (present or former) and nothing else.

I will likely lurk on this forum under a different name.
