Does what other people think matter? So often in our lives we get trapped into someone elses issues of what matters to them. Why is it that we can so easily get caught up in what others are doing?
For the most part we live our lives according to a set of standards that we have compiled for ourselves. When other people do things that we find offensive than we immediately throw up a wall in order to protect our values.
We like to think that we do what we do because it is

Doing some reading and these scriptures are the ones I'm to post today:
Hebrews 13:17 Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.
v3 Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also.
Yes, this is the order I'm to
I made a comment to a friend a few months back and at that time, I had made a note so I wouldn’t forget. I found it in my Bible this past weekend before church. Ya see, I have a ton of notes all over inside my Bible and papers are beginning to fall out. Anyway, I found the note and I have to write something up that is based on that note.
Here is a statement that raised this issue about chaos, “God is in CONTROL!”
So then… why the chaos in our life?
Quite a few times lately, I've found myself thinking, "It won't hurt to let my guard down just a little bit, for just a little while.".
Every time I've done this, I've ended up doing something I shouldn't have done.
Let me tell all of you from experience:
It WILL hurt to let your guard down just a little bit, for just a little while.
Ad hominem arguments basically go along the lines of "Person X has some kind of flaw, therefore he or she is in the wrong on issue X.".
I often see sin in a person's life being used as an ad hominem argument.
Another thing I see, closely related, but not exactly the same, is an unsaved person being unsaved being used as an ad hominem argument.
This gets into all kinds of things.
