Alright then, I’ll say it for all my past deficiencies; I don’t always have the right answer, but am often ignorant of those fuller truths such as this one, yes, there is symbolism in scripture, even one over correcting our ways, if Sax will permit:

“Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife has made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.” (Rev 19:7,8)

Saxon was pointing out a comparison. To your credit, I think sometimes when we use the word in discussion, we get comfortable after a while and with use and after long-term meditation in it, eventually this gives way to growth where some of us have developed in other areas that might appear overwrought to us.

I don’t say this in criticism; again, I’m still deficient in areas, possibly here too. We all are in areas.
