I am completely confident and at ease with my beliefs in (God, Jesus Christ, His word and doctrines). Am I saying that I know and understand everything about them? In no way am I saying that. I do my best to remain open minded; I listen, then verify what I hear or read. Never the less, I don't seek approval from another human being which means I'm not looking for a pat on the back to help me feel better about my beliefs. I'm completely comfortable and confident.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
(My words follow): Many others feel that condemnation (Romans 8:1) to some level and are not free from the law (I don't understand why); they will never be saved by the law (see Romans 3:20 next).
Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. (The law can’t save you; only true belief in Jesus Christ can do that. The law lets you know what sin is though; it is our schoolmaster. See Galatians 2:16 also).
In any case, many still try to convince others that their beliefs and adherence to the law is the correct and only way; they'll try till they're blue in the face. Many say that I must believe and act as they do; if I don't I'm doomed. I would like to ask a question. Are they truly confident in their beliefs or are they seeking to get others to concur with them and approve their beliefs? In some cases, I sense they are seeking reassurance they're on the right track because of a lingering doubt of some kind. In any case, I've heard this many times and each time I hear it, I hear different beliefs. I'm left with a question, which one do I choose? My answer, how about none of them. I choose God's way and what I've learned about His way through study of His word. I'm not saying the law is bad or gone; no way would I say that. The law points us in the right direction; we humans truly need it. We wouldn't know what sin is if we didn't have the law. Adherence to the law can't redeem you, true repentance and accepting God's free gift of salvation will redeem you; see Romans 3:20 above.
We all have to face God on judgment day. So, is the opinion or approval of another human being truly important? Who stands beside us on judgment day? No one, we stand alone. See the verses that are next:
2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

No matter what you choose to believe, keep on studying His word; seek God's approval not the approval of another human. Did you know that God commands us to study? See 2 Timothy 2:15.
