Glenn, thanks for the additional observations and etymology. Like I said from the beginning, there’s a lot that’s been written and my definitions weren’t intended to be exhaustive; so it’s good to read deeper explorations of the subject matter.

Yes, indeed the unblemished church is yet to come. But despite our very human failings, it never hurts to strive for the standards Christ set for us till then.

Thanks for your time and energy!

P.S. Buts are always welcome.
