Some day I should work on this. For now,I believe I have a relationship with God,based on his mercy not my worthiness. I have placed myself in His care and don't worry about allot. I am sinful by nature so I study the Bible ,psychology,anthropology,history and such to learn about myself. Following Christ is not about following rules,it's about being free from the desires of the flesh and the ego.
I believe that Jesus died for everyones sins .That means I have to forgive everyone,darn it. Accepting forgiveness takes rejecting ones own ego and sinful nature but not being rid of it. If I sincerely want to do that and yet fail, I must admit the possibility that others might be engaging in that same struggle,despite appearances.
Astronomy has proven that our universe is 13 billion years old. The Bible Proves that there is a God who loves us all. I don't confuse the bible with science or history. I believe Jesus spoke through the prophets in allegories and parables,just like he did in the Gospels.. Taking the bible literally misses the moral and spiritual message that can only be found by the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
