James 1:4-5
A day will come when those who endure will stand before God in Christ, perfect and complete. Should 'perfect and complete' be understood as Id/Exp, or P (or S)? I think P. We are made perfect when we trust in Christ (Heb 10:14), and then we are completed, as we endure. As we let steadfastness have it's effect, our faith is progressively tested and proven.
