Thank you for your input. Clearly I believe the only laws are the laws created by God himself, again the laws of physics. However; I believe the
word called Christ are guidelines that can lead one to a peaceful and happy existence. One is free not to follow Christ, but know if you refuse to
accept ideologies such as love, acceptance, tolerance and giving you will only condemn yourself to a life of misery.
To love one another is to accept that we are all created by God and that he does not make mistakes. To accept that no person's existence is a
mistake. Acceptance and tolerance follow the same lines, with tolerance I believe we would do well to tolerate the mistakes we all make, tolerate
their mistakes and perhaps they will tolerate yours for we are all fallible. To give to another is to give to God's children, they are all worthy of
receiving for they were all created by the almighty himself.
The issue I have here is that the words you are saying, and the actions you took with your mother (the story you gave concerning her) are two very,
very different things. Actions speak louder than words sometimes and you treated her in a very disrespectful and unGodlike manner. Perhaps you don't
see that due to your age (late teen/early 20's as my guess) but your actions toward her are not something to be proud of in any way, shape or form.
You did a great disservice to her, to yourself and to God.
You do not "force" someone to do anything, you compel, you explain, you encourage.... Your actions must match your words or they are just hollow words
and nothing more.

Perhaps it would be wise to pray for some guidance in how to deal with her and how to best bring her into understanding. The example you gave was very
disturbing and sounded much like gloating about trying to intimidate her.
That's not a method that Christ would have used at all. .... and of course my own actions in lashing out at you for it weren't a good example either,
yet, that's what I did.
Think about what you wish to convey, pray about it and let God do the work through you. It will make a world of difference.
