    To Rightlydivided: Not sure what you really meant by sleight of hand as I was only responding to your post saying that you were a tyrant for 20 years to your wife.

    Not only are we not under the law, we should not try to abide by it.

    What are the foundationial gifts?

    The Holy Spirit gives the gifts and I have never heard of the term 'foundational'. Seems to me that each gift, no matter the kind, is vital to the purpose for which it was intended.
