Rules. Rules. Rules. People can tend to look at religion as merely a rule book on living a good life, but is that what religion is really all about?

The Church has way to many rules. All these bishops and cardinals have committed atrocities of the innocent but at the same time time will laecize a deacon that wants to get remarried. I have a BIG problem with that because with all the scandals going on I feel like a victim as well why a victim. “He who is without sin cast the first stone”. I understand what Canon law states that if you are needed by the diocese that you can get a dispensation to remarry. First of all define needed, very vague term and then who is making that decision. A Cardinal? Our diocese ran without a bishop for almost 2 yrs and all ran ok. So please define needed.
Paul expresses “That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Romans 8:4).
New Testament Christianity is not a religion of rules and regulations for righteousness.
