A Quick Addition to #1

Some, I know, may think that I take the Bible too literally. To those who feel this way I respond simply with this:

I will take my chances.

For the life of me, I cannot imagine the Lord chastising someone for taking him too seriously or trying too hard to obey him. I say this absolutely humbly. I cannot boast, because I fail miserably at what I take literally. I am not a success story. I just believe that God's Word never fails which makes me extremely dependent on the Holy Spirit to lead me in the way of righteousness.

Your post reminds me of the phrase I heard so often while growing up, "You can be so heavenly minded that you are no earthly good."

I'm with you. I'll take my chances.
