Instead of worrying about rules we do better to focus on Christ growing within us, sharing with us his life and goodness. "If you have really died with Christ to the principles of this world, why do you still let rules dictate to you as if you were still living in this world? 'Do not pick up this. Do not eat that. Do not touch the other.'" (Colossians 2:20-21) We have a new life with the Risen Christ within us. Any goodness we have comes from him.
