“Perfect”

I’m looking at all the instances of the greek word “Teleios” in the NT. Here are the references: [ Matt 5:48,19:21,Rom 12:2, 1 Cor 2:6,13:10,14:20, Eph 4:13, Phil 3:15, Col 1:28,4:12, Heb 5:14,9:11, Jm1:4, 1:17,1:25,3:2,1Jn4:18]
It seems that “perfect” has less to do with task oriented thinking and more to do with enduring as a witness through trial. Becoming true children of God, what we are by faith, involves transformation. How well we love our enemies and go the extra mile when put upon demonstrates the difference.
