Agree with everything the pastor says and then do the opposite
December 20, 2015 5:54am CST
There is no lack of wise people among us. We can find them in the various religious groups. Many Christians are very fond of quoting the words of their pastors. They agree that they have to live a simple life. They agree that temptation is the cause of all miseries. They agree that they have to work hard, save money, and learn from the ants. They like to hear the wise sayings, but once they are back in their normal life, they do the opposite. They are lazy at work, because they do not think they are paid enough to work hard. They are not saving enough because they think that God will miraculously help them when they need money. They forget that in nature, when animals do not heed the warning of nature, they will die. If we do not heed the warning to learn from the ants, all the prayers in times of need will not help us.

@scheng1 TO err is human ; to forgive divine. I don't know, I guess that I am nopt very religious. Still I think that it is a waste to go to Church if you are going to pick and choose what to follow. I can't think of the terminology I want to use to better explain.
