Wow, kid, I respect your curiosity and tenacit. I think, though, that you might be examining the doctrines of man too closely. Its good to question tradition and interpretation, that helps you find the truth and form your own opinions about it. But first you have to know the basis of your belifs. Step out of the relugions yuour examiig for a moment and consider God. He is in everything we see and touch, every tear we shed and emtion we feel. Think back to a time when you thought you could feel God, go back there. Then just speak, the way you would to a close friend. Tell him your concerns, ofer him your theories. I promise you on my life that he will listen and.find a way to respind. Your religious belies should be based on your relationship with The Father, not one what abtract tells you

but we are not held accountable for our sins because we accepted Jesus' sacrifice. You can have that too if you want it.
(snip)..... Sin, no matter if it is murder or a white lie, separates you from God. This is the whole reason that Jesus did what He did. He bridged that gap.
