Soo....I was wondering about this title. After digging around found this quote by William Gurnall " Christ bears with the saints’
imperfections; well may the saints one with
another. " Finally found the sermon it was from. I think mostly they are after the premise (though the sermon applies this to Christians at various stages of their faith) that we must bear with each others imperfections. (Indeed the first line of the section is: " Bear with one another’s imperfections. ") But I thought there was a very interesting paragraph late in the sermon that may also have bearing:
" And, when love hath once
laid the dust which passion and prejudice hath
blown into our eyes, we shall then stand at
greater advantage for finding out truth."
Which is kind of really interesting in today's world where "passions and prejudice" are creating a lot of conflict and obscuring truth (secular). I do not know how much of this will have actual bearing on the episode, but I do know that they are interested in these ideas as we saw it a little in New Eden with the argument between Pike and Burnham on religion vs. Science.
Anywho, interesting. I can't imagine where else the name comes from.
