12. To me it isn't
that they need a book, the book and rules are fine but you are right it does seem amazing. To me the amazing thing is the need to be told how to do it and the constant need for community reinforcement. My time in church was social time but for a lot of people it was time for reinforcement. Blew my mind!

For me it is a far better thing to live this way because I choose to and I do struggle with some of it all the time (I can be terribly judgmental) but I am doing it. To have to be told to do it and how to do it and have it reinforced constantly by others approval or disapproval just seems terribly flawed to me. I am willing to admit that I just may not understand. I know many good people who attend church without fail who I think would be good people if they didn't so who really knows. The whole thing does not work for me, I tried over and over but not again.
