Yes we must do as we think fit in the way we believe to be true for us, not what other people tell us. Please mail me for opinions, they will be serious.
: I agree with you in a few areas. I agree that the
: Morman religion is a sci-fi fantasy. I also believe
: as you do, that if your life stinks, you should get
: up and do something about it for yourself. However, I
: do believe the Bible to be the true, inspired word of
: God. That dosn't mean that I sit around waiting for
: miracles to happen, or belive in the screwed up Morman
: interpretation of the Bible. I simply believe that
: Jesus has died for all my sins. Because he has done this,
: out of love (not so that I will be saved by good works,
: because everyone has sinned) I want to obey his commandments; for example
: I don't want to lie, cheat, steal, murder, etc. and
: I think we can both agree that this is a good thing.
: Now I don't misinterpret the Bible like the Mormans
: or Baptists in that I don't have stupid rules, such as
: not drinking coffee, pop, or alcohol, or smoking. In the
: Bible God doesn't say pop is bad. It's still important to
: have a good time, and not sit back and wait for miracles,
: but do things for yourself.
