Metaphysical meaning of Scythian (mbd)
Scythian, sçyth'-i-an (Gk.)--of or belonging to Scythia; cut off; rough; barbarous; immoderate; fierce-looking; rude; ignorant; degraded.
Meta. Thoughts of a very low, ignorant, uncultivated, and seemingly warring character (rough, barbarous, rude, ignorant, fierce-looking, degraded). When the "old man" has been put off, however, and the "new man" fully put on, there will be no more Scythians in consciousness, because all one's thoughts will then have been raised to the Christ standard.
