    Greg; I agree with you; but what about the Saint who truly lives a holy and blameless life, but no one or very very few ever come to the Lord? I think the fruit of the Spirit and a character in the image of God; love joy peace patience kindness goodness faith meekness self-control; which can only come by being perfect with the Lord our God, and MUCH fiery trial and proving over time; is the fruit!
