My problem is that I am apparently way more open-minded than the people I meet, b/c I have no problem with things like homosexuality. I am pro-choice, although I believe that having an abortion for any reason other than rape or medical necessity is selfish. The people that I meet, that believe in God, disagree with me, which is fine, but they are very rude and harsh in their disagreement. They feel this need to change my mind, or to tell me I'm an awful person, and some have even called me names. These reactions put me off believing, b/c I feel like to believe would turn me into these people. So, if there are any others who feel like me, but do believe in God, how do you reconcile this? How do you believe what you believe and not be put off by the people who act like this? And please, don't try to change my mind on the other stuff....that's not what I need, or am asking for. If you want to change my mind, close the question.

I found "For ME" that to submit to God is to do his will and not my own,(Jesus even said "Not my will but yours" Matt 26:39) to live by his standards not my own even if I started out not agreeing or understanding why, it has to do with placing trust in what he says is right and wrong, I took Proverbs 3:5, 6 to heart because I'm imperfect and he is not, he created us and knows whats best for us.
I don't seek to do my will if it's in conflict with his.
