Paul and Peter Mixed up?
I just realised that having had my research focusing on the Apostle Paul for the past few years has, in some ways, conditioned me to think in certain pattern.
I was preparing for my sermon tomorrow, and the text that I would be preaching from is taken from 1 Peter 4:7-11. While scripting my sermon, I kept using the phrase, "Paul says" instead of "Peter says..." several times. It became so naturally for me to say, "Paul argues..."; "Paul suggests..."; and "Paul exhorts..." when it should rightly be "Peter argues...Peter suggests...Peter exhorts..."
My goodness....is this a good or bad sign?
