You MichaelH wrote, "He never sinned, but he was not perfect starting out."Must I always fetch your folks water!!!! Wait, never mind that cost Moses............... I am surprised nobody knows what that is, because Jesus is our example of perfection.
Make me pull up E-Sword.............
Luk 2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
Jesus was not perfect in favour with God, He later said my Father Hears me because I always do what he says do. He increased in Wisdom and Stature with God and man.
There was a reason he was led out into the wilderness to be tempted. He had to pass the test, and increased more and more.
This tells us the sin problem is taken care of, but we need to increase in these areas just Like He did. None of us can start out above what He started, but we follow what He did.
This increase in God, and Growing "IN" Christ is the perfection the Word talks about. To keep our tongue from offending (In a wrong way James)
I then showed the scripture for that, "For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings" (Hebrews 2:10).
So what are you talking about?
