I am a man who knows what he wants and gets it

Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life?" -Matt 16:24-26

Have you ever heard that version before? Me neither. Normal translations translate the last two "life"'s as "soul", despite being the same greek word. I would argue that we have created a disconnect in the meaning. Soul and Life were one word, not two.

Read that passage again and reflect on each sentence in reality repeating the same thing.
