That's the way I was raised.

I think it's OK OR, I like it.: This says, I long as I like something (it ) then it's OK.

 

These are values that put onself as God. "I" think that it is OK, so it must be OK.

 

But what are our guidelines? "Let every man (woman & child) examine himself  to see if he is in the truth." Take a minute to look at that verse and what it is saying.

Faith is not like a single cube-shaped building block sitting on a shelf by itself. Faith is more like a cloud that has a vague shape and almost imperceptable edges. When you try to define concepts like faith, integrity, perseverence, truth you will find that they all overlap one another Each one is a part of the others. Instead of being able to clearly define each one separetly (like setting up building blocks), it's more like trying to stack clouds on top of each other.

Faith is:

  1. the thought, the determination, the umption that there has to be more to life than the way things are or appear to be.
  2. the action, the moving force that keeps us on track to keep going, to keep our eyes on the goal, as we persevere, to keep going through the most severe difficulty, to keep us pressing on when it seems impossible.
  3. perseverence. Faith keeps going until the end. Faith helps us to move mountains, to do the impossible because we never quit, we never give up. Every time we fall down and get discouraged, we get up and go again. 
  4. is our inspiration and motivation to see ourselves as we really are and to be willing to change., and to keep going through the difficult things of life that God uses to change us.

True Life

True life, godly living, or Christianity, or whatever you want to call it is not in the form and structure of religion, and it is also not in the absences of those things. Rather, it is in how we live our lives and treat other people in the midst of where we are and what we do. Unless what we do is evil, we can do all the religious things that we do, OR we can abstain from all those things. It doesn't matter so much what we do as it does matter how and why we do what we do.
