You're right Dinah. My Point: The truth isn't always easy to take, or appreciate. I took it to the limit, and maybe even started pouting a bit.
Because:
1. Of my own experience with learning truth that I wanted to believe and then learning truth that I didn't want to believe, and
2. Frustration.

My brother gropes in darkness and lives a life of ruin. There is nothing I would like more than to do everything for him and bail him out every month, but it wouldn't be in his best interest, so I hold back, keeping an ever-watchful eye, and jumping in when necessary, hoping he will catch the light, and make it on his own.

I sometimes think God feels the same about us. For some reason He has faith in us and thinks if we learn correct principles we can govern ourselves. True, but aren't we supposed to teach one another those correct principles? We learn, then teach, others do the same, and we grow together, keeping an open heart, loving without preconditioned mistrust.

Why do you suppose there are so many Christian denominations? We don't find that kind of disparity in the non Christian religions.

Well, here I am, and there you are, I am true to my roots and you remember the Primary songs, and know the stories of your pioneer ancestors, yet you chose not to follow in their footsteps, for reasons that must have been logical at the moment. Only, I don't think my brother thought about reasons. He only believed in the moment. I wish I understood how that happens.
