People who believe that their salvation depends exclusively upon their own individual faith, beliefs, efforts, confessions, etc. are not free to let go and accept the contributions of others who are different and can complement them in their prayers for both personal and communal integrity. An absolute responsibility for your own salvation through your own proper faith, beliefs, works, rituals, confessions, etc. makes it impossible for you to fall in love---due to fear of falling out of grace and heaven. Infants are most fearful of falling. If they are taught to fear falling in love they will lead fearful adult lives. To fall in love is to let go and not be fearfully cautious of slipping in one's efforts to achieve salvation. So long as one is cautiously trying to achieve one's own salvation it is not safe to fall in love. Love is not cautious, systematic, calculating, and careful in the ways required to achieve your own salvation. Love seeks to make connections, not to achieve differentiation and separation from those who are not saved. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
