(March 4, 2014)
The language at the end of this chapter seems incredibly daunting to me. I am far from a perfect man, although I would like to think that I am getting better as time goes on. There seems to be no ambiguity here (although I might be proof-texting) – if I know a commandment of God and I am not keeping it (just one commandment), does that mean that I am lost for eternity? It seems an incredibly high standard for me to meet right now, which is (I suppose) why I am still on the Earth. Perhaps if I live long enough, I will be able to rise up to meet this required standard.
