I think that if you think highly of your church and trust their choices, then you have to preapre yourself to be at peace with whichever decision they make.

@Seashells7:  I grew up christian, still am, and it’s still hard. I struggle all the time but that’s the devil tempting us. Like missrobots said, you just have to accept what the church decides. In the end, it’s what God wants, right?

I think it’s important to frequently question the choices of your religious leadership and if those choices are right for you, because relgious leaders are not any less human than we are. They will make mistakes. But you say that you have faith in them, and you feel strongly this is the right church for you, so as long as you’re not sacrificing your true self to conform to their restrictions, then you have to be okay with not always hearing what you want to hear.

Also, full disclosure, I’m agnostic and have no connection to any organized religion.

@Seashells7:  This is one of those times where you just have to let God change your heart more into His own & let HIS resolve fill you instead of your own. Over and over He asks us to do, say, or think in ways that are contray to who “we” are & we simply have to follow His guidance letting Him change us along the way.

Awhile back there was another bee in almost the same position. Hundreds of posts later & lots of debate back & forth it was inspiring to see how what started as conflict in her heart became a praiseful obedience to what God was asking of her.

It sounds like you already have a mature understanding of spiritual authority & walking obediently with God so at this point you just have to take it to Him & ask for His peace in whatever is decided. Will you have to wrestle with God if its against what you want?… Probably, BUT He can change that conflict into resolve & bring you closer to Himself & who He’s created you to be in the process.

Wow, that’s intense. I’m from a Christian Reformed Church, which is slightly different from the Reformed Church and we are not at all that strict. Every CRC wedding i’ve been to had dancing. Back in the 80s there wasn’t any, but there is now. Event he Christian schools here have school dances in high school.

I’m glad things are going well though! Hopefully you get your way!
