What do you do if you become legalistic, and start to kinda think almost everything's a sin, like, can't chat about the weather, because that's idle speech(or is it?), and stuff like that? Undecided HuhPS: thesetext effects aregreat!

Read Galatians and follow the Scripture references. I think that you want to find out about the Liberty Jesus Christ paid for on the Cross - He freed us. Example:

Galatians 5:1-5 KJV  Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.  2  Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.  3  For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.  4  Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.  5  For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.

Remember, we're not under the law. The time we live is called the Age of Grace or the Church Age. Example:

Ephesians 3:1-7 KJV  For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,  2  If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:  3  How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,  4  Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)  5  Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;  6  That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:  7  Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

This ought to get you started. If you have a study Bible, you'll find many cross references to other portions of Scripture pertaining to this issue. I hope this helps.
