Those that are "perfect"...from the Greek text

The word perfect is to be examined closely in this text. Applicable today.

Corinthians 2:6,7...Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory
