Why does sin need practice?

    People arn't born "good liars" right? Praciticing lying is the only way to excel at it, correct?

    That strikes me as odd when mixed in with what I was taught:

    That sin is something we lean towards because we are born with it, it's genetic!

    Sin isn't easy for me, never has. I don't like covetting other peope's property. I don't enjoy lying, ever, in fact I hate it. I don't want to commit adultry or practice sex frivolously was as many partners I can get. I actually prefer a single lifemate? Isn't that weird?

    Maybe my teachers would think that they were the ones that taught me right from wrong! They deserve credit, no? I don't think they do, they just fluffed the big blanket of prohibition in my face, I was the one that had to figure out why certain things should be considered "wrong." You basically helped me figure out that evil existed. Thanks for that, because it ended up helping me find out you were actually evil.

    So I left.

    Some of the most Immoral People are JW`s..

    The WBT$ sticks Immoral Conduct in their faces at every opportunity..

    JW`s think thats how life is in the outside world and they want to try it..

    LOL!!..

    The WBT$ causes more Problems for JW`s,than the Outside World ever will..

    Perhaps those things are because too much emphasis is placed on the outside of the cup being clean, and not enough emphasis on cleaning the inside of the cup.
