In: You mean the human complexity for God-given perfection.

Con: Not if you have a Testimony of Simplicity.

In: You mean Plain-ness, which reflects the Original Poverty, as need rather than capacity, of humanity.

Con: It is Simplicity when you have moved from poverty.

In: You mean a move next to or across from it - like the flight to the ever-expanding suburbs.

Con: "That of God in everyone" allows us to sympathize with the plight of the poor.

In: You mean "the common denominator" that allows you to claim more for yourself while expecting less of others.

Con: Why are you always putting words in our mouth?

In: Because you are confused and lack infused love in your heart.
