Where in the bible does it say that you have to prove to the rest of the world that you believe in God? Is there a passage that says He wants you to do this? No. So why do you do it? Why do you put ashes on your forehead... it's a sacrament... all you're doing is telling someone else that you believe. You don't have to do that. He doesn't want you to do that. Basically, you're just saying, "I'm better than you, because I believe harder than you." which just makes you a prude.
Are people forgetting about past tense? Are we living for the moment so much that the past no longer matters? People: It's "used to" -- past tense, not "use to". Schmuck!
