First. I am not a mormon but I was born and raised in a lutheran community in an old european country. My english is bad. but I hope you get my dilemma.
Here is my dilemma.. It is cultural.
I hear this in my life:
- Do not live of this world! Gods grace can not be earned through works!
- But We forbid you to not make a living in the modern economy or do the best you can of your life God gave you! If you do not you do not contribute to the community.
If I would go 100% "off the grid" culturally or in frugal way I would not be allowed to "eat"/join the rank of decency because I did not live up to the norm.
But why do community force me to live my whole life for works that does not make me closer to God?
Why is the protestant work ethic so strong when it does not make any difference regarding the relation to God?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wh1VU-_OF98
Do you have more takes on this dilemma? I think you have because I have not.
