    To demonstrate the essay question I saw in a dream I have posed this question for bbryd009. "What is your purpose on this site."

    The corresponding essay question would be something like:

    "Write an essay to describe
    your perspective of forgiveness
    as an element of Grace. How
    does god's Grace influence your
    perspectives on discernment?"

    yes, i get you, so iow you got a test that you already knew the answers for, is what i am hearing. Again, i am not a dream guy at all, but your dream started with you doing teacher stuff, arranging desks, then alla sudden you're getting a "test" that you already know the answers, and also you mentioned that you grabbed the test, the (now) teacher did not give it to you, which is another element i would contemplate. Also you might make a working statement of what you think the dream meant, to reveal your dream perspective

    What is the purpose, but to remind us to be mindful of our words.

    Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
    2 Timothy 2:14‭-‬16 KJV

    An interpretation is something that makes sense of every detail. My view is just the pragmatic, what can we take from it.

    are you sure?
    yes, i already heard that you must interpret the dream for yourself, when the test you grabbed was written by you? Nothing wrong with that i guess. Any breakthroughs yet?

    I don't believe it is necessary to interpret it myself. That is something Frank Lee said on the dream topic. Doesn't matter to me if I have the whole interpretation. Didn't seem that I was doing anything in the dream that needed repenting of.

    "teacher becomes student" is not a bad thing, i agree; or at least it depends upon how one hears that i guess. What does getting a test that you might have written yourself mean, do you think?

    I didn't make it myself, and I am not a teacher. I think many confuse biblical leadership and teaching, because their preacher does both.

    might have, but i already had the impression i was not characterizing that quite right; i was looking for a better characterization from you, what that meant to you in the dream iow
    i don't think that matters i dream language though; and that characterization may not be right either; it's just what i heard you saying
