No my belief isn't based on movies baile. However the kind way to ask a question is as follows

Why do you think that?

And here's is my answer to your passive aggressive covert question

Because of what I read in the Bible

Baile going forward if you have a question you may ask. However I would appreciate it very much if you would not assume to know how or what I think. Last time I checked human beings are not superheroes who have the power to read another's mind. Please and thank you

The book did not match the message that those translators liked. They just included what seemed fitting to them.

Yes Sky... a person who fully comes to know God would want to obey, ie, do the will of God because the two wills are in harmony and in relationship. But there is no intermediary in this
The orthodoxy you mention means man, and mans attempts to make people obey them in order to follow their will. that is the difference,
but its hardly black and white, life really is amazing at the visible diversity and dimensions beyond our reach. life really is so incredible and amazing, but we are led to believe I guess that it isn't. why is that?

If you fully know God you wouldn't need to OBEY
