People's Bible Notes for Philippians 3:15


Php 3:15 As many as be perfect. It cannot mean perfect in the absolute sense, for he declares that he is not perfect, and surely the Philippians were not in advance of the apostle who admonishes them. See Php 3:12. Meyer says the Greek word here ("teleioi") means mature, well developed, not children in Christ. Let such as are so far advanced be thus minded. Show the spirit indicated in 3:7-14 If in anything ye are otherwise minded. If you have not the mind to count all else as refuse in contrast with Christ, etc. God shall reveal even this unto you. Will bring you to this state of mind. Of course this clause shows that he does not address those whom he believes to be "perfect".
