    I was reading through the Proslogian and came accross the best discussion of living rightly.

    I have read a bit from his work on "The Satisfaction of Christ", or some such title in translation. But no, I am not familiar with "Proslogian". You need to elaborate and tell us much more about it. My quess is that very few have read that piece.( Just a hunch).You need to think out loud, Thinkingstuff.

    Anselm

    What I was thinking was this: What do you think about his statement conserining right living? I thought it was kind of neat but I'll paraphrase it here:
    God being just in his justness must compensate Jesus for his sacrafice. However, what can God Jesus that Jesus does not already have? The Universe is his, his place in the trinity is his, all things already belong to him. So God give Jesus us. And not broken or sinful but sinless. Our honor to him by living rightly is God's gift to Jesus. I didn't quote him quite right but that's kind of the jist.

    A sobering call to holy living, if ever there was one.
