Sorry TF, I didn't mean to lecture you.

I just think the words need to be said. I'm guilty of searching for ways to circumvent obedience to God's word, in favor of "figuring out" a way that "seems right" or that "leans toward my own understanding". Or worse, I didn't want someone to think poorly of me, so I made a choice to minimize God and his word, thereby excusing my own selfishly motivated wilful disobedience.

There are questions we don't have to ask when the clear answer is in the Bible. I also remember asking my mother questions, and often she would say "let your conscience be your guide" I hated that!
