I find this more and more that if you stand up for what is right, people will knock you down and your called self-righteous.On the other hand, if you sin with no remorse and no need to repent, you're considered quite normal. Isn't that twisted? So if you stand up for your convictions, you'll be accused of being self-righteous and I dare say a Pharisee but the guy next to you who hit up some girl in the bar and knocked her up is considered the true Christian because he knows he's nothing but a sinner. So did I WASTE years thinking it was important to obey? Should I follow Joe Schmoe's example?

That's true and you made a good point.
A good point you make Renee, about challenging ourselves etc..Everyone who's ever lived made 100's maybe even 1000's of mistakes in their lives, but only the one's who learn from them get on well in life..Mistakes are normal, but repeating them isn't
Thanks. That was very good advice. You're very wise.
When people try to bring me down all i do is see it as practice for me, practice to see if i let what they say bother me..After 6/7 months practice controlling my emotions/feelings, nothing anyone can say will faze me.
Interesting way to look at things. Thanks. Imagine Mother's Day. You have two people seated in front of you. One obeyed the Lord and tried to do the right thing ended up with no family. The one who sinned blatantly got the wife and baby. Why?
Well the one who sinned blatantly is obviously operating from his ego mind only, & whatever he's got isn't what he really wants/needs in life..The one who always tries to do the right/good thing, will eventually get what they really need/want.
That was an excellent answer. Thank you Dave36. And the irony is I remember this person saying "I hate kids!" Go figure God keeps giving him more. ;) Meanwhile many desperately can't have them. I believe God has a plan and I must trust him.
I wonder if the guy who "knocked" the girl up he met at a bar really loves her, or has he made a mistake he'l/she'l regret?.The thing you've got to remember about people is they can't handle the truth, never if it's about them.So don't tell them!lol
