the thing that always drove me crazy was "setting the example".
the sisters should "set the example" and wear proper clothes and makeup.
we all should "set the example" by studying, preparing, service, etc. etc. whatever it is they are trying to get you to do.
everyone should "set the example" in seeking out proper entertainment, e.g. not go to movies they deem inappropriate.
you know, it all seemed so hypocritical, like they were only doing what was right to "set the example", for show, for appearances. sooo self-righteous.
seems to me being Christian is BEING like Christ in thought and deed not "setting the example" by some human standard. to me it is something you work out between you and Him. not with the idea that, oh if i do everything in the "theocratic" way people will see how good i am and learn from me.
well thanks for letting me get THAT off my chest.
