I don't think it is just the religions trying to make their congregations follow them. There seems to be something in human nature that wants there to just be a set of rules to follow, cut and dried, to make things simpler. Since things don't always work that way, that leads to people trying to follow man-made rules...even when they are rules based on something good, it is dangerous to ever let yourself get in the situation of relying on a rule rather than remember the reason behind it.

15:8 Scott, I really appreciate the verse you mentioned, too. It is similar to the thoughts I had in the hymns thread I started on the main board this morning....about God knowing our TRUE hearts. (Well, that may not be at all what the *verse* is about, but what I should have said, is that's what it made me think of.)
We can go to church, any church (or not) and honor God all day long...but He KNOWS without a single doubt...if we really mean it and how we're living our lives. That verse that mentions he knows the hairs on our head..the number of them...He knows ALL about us and our hearts. It's been good for me tonight to remind myself that we may deceive others and we may even do it well...but we hide *nothing* from God. I want to try harder to be closer to God so He doesn't say He never knew me on judgement day. M.
(and it's really not "fair" to piggyback off of Scott's thoughts here...I will go through and read the chapters again as well...) M.
