Literal or Figurative?

I would hate to live in a world where I was constantly wondering if I were going to hell. A life that I constantly monitored as being perfect.

How miserable. As miserable to me as if you knew you were a serial killer or some sick lowest of the low person. I don't believe either world is healthy or happy.

But the Bible says, "Be ye perfect ..." Do you think God really meant for us to be PERFECT? It also tells women to not cut their hair. There's that old thing about interpretation again.

I think what I hate most is when one person or a group of people force their "interpretations" of the scriptures down the backs of our throats with no concern as to whether they've really thought this thing through. Just, "Yepper, by golly, that's what it says!"

Live, find happiness, and be the best person you can be. Keep it all in prospective and to hell with what everybody else has to say.

Find your own relationship with your creator. Don't get it off the TV or from any man or woman that stands in the pulpit or preaches to you in the comfort of your own livingroom.

If He really wanted us to be perfect, then He wouldn't renew his mercies every morning ... now would He?

I'm tired of perfect people. And I mean that ... LITERALLY.

Blessings to you and yours.
