Sorry was a bit late and I wanted to think about it a bit - as to what's missing, I think we're missing a lot of the circumstance regarding things... as well as the "why". For example, it is my understanding that the New Testament overrides the Old, and thus things such as "when to stone your wife" and such are no longer pertinent topics as it should be about forgiveness, not retribution. As far as how I determine what is accurate and what is not... that's a tough one. Again, it's something I go by feel - trust my gut so to speak. I try to look at things from the aspect of "what actually matters"... such as, if someone wrongs me in some small way, is it actually WORTH getting upset and hostile about, or is it better to just let it go. Things like that. I know I'm not always the best at putting my money where my mouth is in that respect (I have my fathers temper and at times it's very difficult to keep that in check, as much as it infuriates me to admit that) but, yeah... I think at this point I'm rambling... I guess my point is, I had to find a church that practiced what they preached, instead of just talking the talk.
