Well no, you misunderstand. I was trying to find a reason as to why I converted and started believing in a God by no choice of my own. I searched other religions and couldn't find the answer. It wasn't until I read parts of the New Testament that explained the concept of predestination to me. It's not that I'm picking and choosing parts of the Bible, it's that I used parts of the Bible to explain what had happened to me.

And Erxomai, I don't don't gymnastics. My interpretations are very grounded, logical, and reconciled.

So you just kept reading until you found something that fitted into your already preconceived notions?
