In response to thee and God, written by Art on July 04, 1998 at 09:36:43
] In contradicting you I mean no disrespect, Caroline, but God is addressed as "thee" not because He is singular, but as an expression of our intimate and close individual relation with Him.
Which just goes to show that what I remember from Sunday School, aged about nine, isn't always as clear as I'd like to think it is!I always understood it in relation to the first two commandments- there being one God and one God only. The french version of the Lord's prayer uses "toi'" and not "vous" throughout, which corresponds to your reasoning and not to mine.Thanks!
