Being told about a way to live.. yes, is not being forced..
It's simply a choice that has to be made or rejected... correct.. We are the masters of these choices..
But the instructions (I've always thought) come as a package deal.. wrong imo...
If one chooses to live by a certain scripture or policical offiliation or anything at all as far as belief goes, it is up to that idividual to find is own way towards that goal, and not a set of instructions.. Life, religion, politics, ways of being, these are fluid concepts that change and transform from generation to generation and as such a written set of instuctions serves only to dam and obstruct the flow.. instructions on how to live, in any way or form, are counter productive.. Sure there are aspects of it that should we written in stone, but it's up to an idividual to choose to accept these aspects.. But should not accept instruction..
