So, lately I've been trying to find a bible study by someone who actually believes the bible alone without embellishments. Crossed two names off my list: one I haven't looked at before and one I had ready to use. I think the selfist, selfish, self-first, self-love, self-aggrandizement, self-protective, self-etc. attitude of america has left us with a self-created god. If we truley believed who God is and Jesus is and the Holy Spirit is, and who we are and where we came from and being loved before we knew we needed it, we would be much less self centered and more humbled and grateful.

If morals and standards are "rules". What are they for. Are we taking them on ourselves and our life styles because we need unmoving boundaries? And why? Are they an entity unto themselves that we look to to have an excuse to behave? Hmmm. Just some ramblings and musings. I should come to some conclusions soon.

Okay, so I've been thinking on a subject that I will attempt to put into coherent prose. Morals, standards and judging. I know, big subject. If Christ fulfilled the law, what are morals and standards. And what are people really trying to do when they judge.
I found the book "The Shack" at a recent thrift store forage and thought I would find out what the hullabaloo is about. I did get me thinking. I never like imagery of the sort used in the story. I don't mind fiction if it's based on reality, but not total fantasy trying to be real. (Now, fantasy stories that are allegorical I like. ) Any way, it's just some thinking I'm doing and I will cover it slowly as I mull. Feel free to step in and add to the flow - concise thoughts please, so as not to lose my attention.
I've also just finished my first book for review from NavPress. I need to write a 200 word review. Then I get to chose another book. Fun!
