Agreed that the prohibition against dancing is a silly rule. I'm not sure that it comes from where you say it does, but I don't see any biblical reason that dancing is wrong.All religion is clearly not about "suffering" and "enduring"; for one thing, there's clearly a good amount of joy:Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Romans 12:15But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, Philippians 1:18Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Philippians 4:4This is not to say that there is no patience or suffering, in fact the Bible says to expect it. It is a typical mischaracterization (by both believers and non-believers) to say that religion is all about suffering, or to say that there is no suffering at all (the prosperity doctrine, etc). The truth is somewhere in the middle.About the commandments -- Exodus 20 and Exodus 34 have two different sets. But they don't disagree with eachother, they compliment eachother.
