I believe you always should tell the truth even if it ends up having bad results, however I personally am okay with doing an evil if I believe it is for a greater good. Just like stealing is bad but if I had to do it to keep one of my younger siblings alive I would do it in a heartbeat. Which I guess makes me a hypocrite but I would do almost anything for people I care about
Wait that´s still a thing? How exactly does it work; your religion I mean. Is their a book with your belief (like a Bible, or a history of the gods)? Who is Hlïn? How did you join this belief system?
P.S.: please do not answer if you do not want to I am simply curious.
A Progressive is just a person advocating or implementing social reform or new, liberal ideas. Having liberal ideas just means to be open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values. I don´t see how this can be considered a mental illness anymore than conservatism which is someone who is holding political views that favor free enterprise, private ownership, and socially conservative ideas. Neither one is necessarily bad and both have done good things. Progressives in the past were people who fought for racial equality or the end of slavery. The early church itself was progressive, it implemented new ideas into the Roman empire. Some progressives do support things I am personally against like abortion or gay marriage but they have a right to their beliefs just like us. We need to be respectful to other people and not judge them by Christian standards because they are not Christians. Jesus came to help the downtrodden, the broken. He came to help the Romans and the Greeks who worshiped other gods. He did not seek to put them down or start a fight with them. Please can we not as Christians stay civil when talking to those who do not believe and show them the love and mercy of Jesus?
Well I always thought of it more like being that once you get to heaven you don´t lose your freewill so much as you just don´t make the bad choices, you know? like I could still choose to do something bad but I don´t want to because I made it to heaven and look it the creator of the universe!

109. Seven on the Light Bulb Task Force Subcommittee, who report to the 12 on the Light Bulb Task Force, appointed by the 15 on the Trustee Board. Their recommendation is reviewed by the Finance Executive Committee of 5, who place it on the agenda of the 18 member Finance Committee. If they approve, they bring a motion to the 27 member Church Council, who appoint another 12 member review committee. If they recommend that the Church Council proceed, a resolution is brought to the Convention floor. They appoint another 8 member review committee. If their report to the next Convention supports the changing of a light bulb, and the Convention votes in favor, the responsibility to carry out the light bulb change is passed on to the Trustee Board, who in turn appoint a 7 member committee to find the best price in new light bulbs. Their recommendation of which hardware has the best buy must then be reviewed by the 23 member Ethics Committee to make certain that this hardware store has no connection to the Walt Disney Corporation. They report back to the Trustee Board who, then commissions the Trustee in charge of the Janitor to ask him to make the change. By then the janitor discovers that one more light bulb has burned out.
