well, vektek, i hate to disappoint you but i have studied this decades ago.
this greek word, 5048. teleioó, means to complete. it has nothing to do with the way you use the word perfect, as something without a flaw. or something that is unattainable. remember, jesus did what none of us could do by sacrificing for our sins. the rest is up to us. sin is not the issue. you keep making it an issue like you hold a magic wand or something. nope. everybody's sins are covered,. everywhere. for all time backwards and forwards. you dont own that.
since i have had strongs concordance condemned on these boards i go to my personal library behind me and pull the definitive lexicon by the doctor of divinity Joseph Henry Thayer: to carry through completely, to accomplish, finish, bring to an end - to make perfect of complete.
and if thats not good enough then you can take a look at the websters dictionary of 1828 that the king james adherents swear by:
PER'FECT, a. [L. perfectus, perficio, to complete; per and facio, to do or make through, to carry to the end.]
1. Finished; complete; consummate; not defective; having all that is requisite to its nature and kind; as a perfect statue; a perfect likeness; a perfect work; a perfect system.
As full, as perfect in a hair as heart.
2. Fully informed; completely skilled; as men perfect in the use of arms; perfect in discipline.
3. Complete in moral excellencies.
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father who is in heaven is perfect. Mat 5.
4. Manifesting perfection.
My strength is made perfect in weakness. 2 Cor 12.
Perfect chord,in music, a concord or union of sounds which is perfectly coalescent and agreeable to the ear, as the fifth and the octave; a perfect consonance.

Perfect tense, in grammar, the preterit tense; a tense which expresses an act completed.
PER'FECT, v.t. [L. perfectus, perficio.] To finish or complete so as to leave nothing wanting; to give to any thing all that is requisite to its nature and kind; as, to perfect a picture or statue. 2 Chr 8.
-Inquire into the nature and properties of things, and thereby perfect our ideas of distinct species.
If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 1 John 4.
1. To instruct fully; to make fully skillful; as, to perfect one's self in the rules of music or architecture; to perfect soldiers in discipline.
but really, honestly, if one looks at the text and its context one can see that the commandment is that we are to acheive this state of being complete. "be" being and emphatic verb.
this is congruent with the parable of the wise man and the foolish man. the foolish man builds his house on sand. the wise man builds on a rock. these are things a person must do, not that god does for them.
why should i address any more of your sermon when it is probably as bereft of understanding,and scholarship as this fist point? thanks for helping me keep it brief. and if you dont know what the parable means then i suggest you should as it is pretty basic, pardon the pun.
i dont know how you think you can pull this crap, i really dont.
i will, however, try to glean something from the rest of your text to see if you actually and accurately address anything i had to say.
