No Kitty, I don't need a 24-7 babysitter to do what's right, I just do it. Temptation is perhaps something we all have, and I know for a fact that I have made many mistakes in my life. Repenting is a way of wiping the slate clean by asking for forgiveness for things that we have done in the past, not for what we intend to do in the future? I shoplifted as a teenager and got caught, but even if I hadn't got caught, I wouldn't have carried it on because the guilt was unbearable.<quoted text>
So you are going to make a veiled not true Scotsman fallacy.
The main point is that if you need a 24-7 babysitter to do what's right, then you are mentally unstable and incapable of living on your own anyway, because that means you have desires to hurt other people.
Each time I recall these things I ask for forgiveness ~ I no longer need to take them with me into my tomorrow, I am busy enough removing that which has been done.
GOD is with me, but my actions are my own, determined by my own personal and Spiritual goals ~ I want to have us much good stuff packed into my Vessel as possible when I too, give up my ghost and move into the next Realm, the next experience.
We are who we are....
