What did Saint Paul have in mind when he wrote:
" Why, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as inmy presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it isGod which works in you both to will and to do of his good  pleasure.Do all things without murmurings and disputing: That youmay be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the middle of a crooked and perverse nation,among whom you shine as lights in the world
