Life is to short to waste time trying to live someone else's life or by some institution's rules and standards.
So many people are brainwashed by man-made doctrines that is the result of some man's interpretation of what they think the bible means based on what they have been taught from other people's perceived understanding.
Don't let the numbing noise of other people's opinion drown out the still small voice of the Spirit or your own inner voice.
Don't let the religious mumble-jumble of the religiously mumble-jumbled people prevent you hearing the Spirit's voice in your heart, have the courage to follow your heart's intuitional leading.
Living a life of love for people, is not the same as living the life of other people to gain their love and acceptance!
