274: DESIRES, APPETITES, AND PASSIONS.



WHAT ARE THE BOUNDS THAT THE LORD HAS SET?
 
 About 400 miles directly west of Salt Lake City is the Black Rock Desert. Every year 10's of thousands of people gather at an event called the Burning Man. It is being held this weekend over Labor Day. It gathers like minded people who do not believe than anyone has the right to a dictate how people should be and/or act. There are no bounds. A month from now, 10's of thousands of people will gather in the LDS Conference Center at an event called General Conference. It gathers members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints whose views are in extreme opposite to those who probably attend Burning Man. The members follow a very strict adherence to how they should be and act.  I created a chart to show the differences.
 
 
 
 

I post this only to ask a few questions.What are the bounds that the Lord has set? On one side of the spectrum, there are no bounds.... On the other side of the spectrum, is there too much control and too many bounds? Is there even a happy medium? What is the undeviating course we should follow and adhere to that leads to eternal life? Does the Lord expect us to follow codes of conduct in what we wear, drink, eat, say, or do?  If so, what exactly are those, and is it different for each individual or the same for all of us?
 
Anyway something to thing about this Labor Day weekend..
