No rules? Too often people get hung up on the right or wrong way to have faith. They focus their behavior on rules they feel should be followed to be "right with God." Even churches and organizations are guilty of such--projecting what is thought to be the right way to behave and enforcing it on others. It's called legalism.
Can it really be that difficult? Jesus actually made it very, very clear. He took about 613 rules of that time and said they would be fulfilled by two concepts: Love God and Love Others. We don't need rules if we're able to embrace this because love is the motivating factor, not rules. Enjoy the freedom you have in Jesus today to Love God and Love Others.
