Good and interesting points made in this post. Thanks for the reference, which is new to me.

I'm having a hard time throwing out James (and I guess 1 Peter, 2 Peter, and maybe Jude, "epistles to the dispersion") altogether from our bibles, because there are so many things that apply the "the New Man" where there are no Jews or Gentiles (But Christ is all and in all). "Every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights" comes to mind. I do like the idea of being careful to not assume it all applies to Gentile believers.
