  1. “Sober reflection, consideration of the best way forward, thinking beyond one’s own grievance, modelling what you’d want from others. Let’s call it ‘maturity’.
    “Admittedly, none of these require my Invisible Magic Friend but here’s a bit from my Big Book of Magic Stuff because, er, it’s my job.”

    1. Indeed; the BBoMS is not the most obvious source of inspiration for people to grow up and start taking mature decisions. The reverse, if anything.

      Not to mention the fact that Ephesians is definitely not by ‘Paul’, whoever he may have been. Scholars think that a lot of it was copied from Colossians, which wasn’t written by ‘Paul’ either. There seems to have been quite a cottage industry in the late first and early second centuries of Christians with an axe to grind pretending to be ‘Paul’ in order to impose their dogmas on their submissive congregations.
