I certainly support your right to believe as you do, but for me *personally* I respectfully disagree.

Life would be SO much easier if we were all to submit to God's will.
However, the God I serve and believe in gave each one of us free will...and it gets me in trouble every time!
God doesn't want a bunch of lemming followers, He desires us to submit to His will by choice. Just like, I don't want my husband to be with me because I went through this nightmare with him; I want him to be with me because he loves me. (Did that make sense? )

(I really enjoy these older threads!)
