No Rules.. Sounds really good.. But all around us, we have rules..Traffic rules, govt rules, School Rules, College Rules, Company Policies( read as rules).. Is there an ideal place where there are no rules?? Incidently there is.. a community where actually there are no rules.. I am not sure if you would agree, but the Christian community has none..
Everyone can do whatever they want.. There are no rules! How does that work? Sounds crazy enough? Well, it goes like this.. You are on your own, you can do whatever you want. Then how do you know what's right or wrong? God loves us so much and he says that he lives in us. So when his spirit is within us, he guides and teaches what to do and what not..
How does the mighty God who made earth and all the planets live in simple people like us, who err every minute..God can't overlook any mistake/wrongdoing/sin. Mistake/sin deserves punishment( there is no big or small sin in his dictionary). So who gets the punishment? God took the punishment on Jesus his son, bcoz he loved us dearly. Yeah, thts why he died on the cross.. So now all the sins we did/doing/will do in the past, present, future are forgiven.. whew!
SO, whats the catch?? NONE! God loves everyone.. the terrorists, the rapists, the babies, the gangsters, the good and the bad. This is the unconditional love. We dont deserve it. But that's what is grace...
So when we ask God to live in us, he does. He does not force us, push us to do good. If he is such kind, he would have made us all robots.. but he gave us free will. So no rules. No strings attached.
and Bible.. that's a history, adventure, mystery and many more all combined to one book.. To be honest, its a love letter.. a love letter from God to the human race.. read it to know more...
"Everything is permissible for me"—but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible for me"—but I will not be mastered by anything. I corin 6:12
For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life John 3: 16
