I'm not about to enter the realm of arguing religion or spirituality ar the lack thereof. When it comes to belief systems, you're entitled to yours, I'm entitled to mine and they, whoever they may be, are entitled to theirs.
It bothers me not one whit if people presume to know the will of God, ascribe God's will and intention to items, events or attitudes or believe themselves somehow superior by virtue of those beliefs. As long as they keep it to themselves.
I'm used to people avering that they are 'saved', but I don't think my personal beliefs are any business of theirs and don't appreciate them being so obtuse as to ask.
I particularly don't appreciate having someone else's beliefs shoved at me in the form of either personal conversation or imposition of law. Somehow, discussions of religion always end up there, and I'd rather keep things on an unoffensive level.
I will admit to having read the Bible (including the begats), the Apocrapha and a bevy of Eastern philosophies. I will also admit to being the one person to vote 'I am uncertain!'
Certainty, in these matters, seems to be the basis of all manner of discord and appears to me to be most egocentrically presumptuous. When one believes they know the inclination and nature of God, they know nothing!
Religion that makes one agitated, fearful or embued with self righteousness is useless. People can get that way all on their own.
