You have certain convictions and beliefs you live by & I have mine. The Bible is my guide, not my "magic conch shell" or my "magic 8 ball", lol! I live what I believe. You believe that when you sit down, your chair will hold you up, correct? Did your parents teach you that? Of course they did, some how or another in your upbringing. You can choose to reject that philosophy & sit on the floor if you want to, but you won't because the chair will hold you up! That is truth. As with the chair, the Bible has been proven true. Its truth sustains me, its Author is my God. He is truth. I live by His Word.
People are afraid of going to Hell and use the Bible for the guidelines for living according to God's laws. Believe or not, it does have good suggestions for living. I do agree that often it is due to a person's upbringing.
as for me and my house we shall choose The Bible (KJV) GOD word to guide us.. you may choose to follow or not whom you wish. I'm not afraid of going to hell.. I have free will and I wish to obey... my choice.
