Default Re: A quote on obedience from an Ezzo teaching video

I see. Ok. I do strive to explain things like that to my children. For example the song :

I'm in right
Outright
Upright
Downright
Happy all the time
Since Jesus Christ came in
And cleansed my heart from sin
I'm inright
Outright
Upright Downright
Happy all the time

Drives me NUTS. But, the children's song leader has the kids sing it and my dh doesn't see it as a big deal so I just explained to the kids that while having *Jesus* makes us happy all the time, that doesn't mean everything in our lives will be happy all the time. etc.

I was raised with all those songs and I guess I didn't think much about them b/c my own mother always made it so clear that God=love etc. But then as an adult I started attending legalistic style churches and I'm having to re learn all that again. Trying to keep my mind on Christ and not all the 'rules' I have to follow to be worthy etc.
In Christ,
Joy
