@cable_extreme: I guess it is more of, it takes lot of time to put together fully thought out responses and I just don't have enough to address each specific question in detail. However, I will be happy to explain my position in a very simple manner. Here goes:
Love God. Love others.
That's pretty much it and the goal of my life.The corollary to this is: Introduce others to this same God so they can share in this loving relationship. All the rest can be debated ad nauseam but I have found sticking to these simple concepts works.
