Re: Struggling

Re: No standing still?

If progression in this life is your goal, standing still is, at least, losing time to progress.

We lose sight too easily of the concept of "eternal" progression when we talk about this, as well as the need true rest on a regular basis. Even God rested in the creation narrative.

Re: Stewards of Time

We don't have an official theory on anything (almost). It's not what we do.

My own theory:

Use your time in whatever way you believe is best for you and allow everyone else the same privilege, let them us their time however they may. (with a few obvious exceptions dealing with illegal activities)
