Why so? And what about the part of converting to Christianity -- willfully. Or am I to infer that you equated having a desire for righteousness with converting to Christianity?

Jesus said that those who do hunger and thirst after righteousness would be filled and that He would do the filling for He said He was the Bread of Life and that whoever drinks of the water that He will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that He will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

Do you realize how gullible and intellectually lazy that makes you? WC Fields had you pegged.

its easier for me to accept everything that is acceptable without questioning whether or not I should accept it once I have decided it is acceptable.

And what qualified you, in your mind, to "decide what is acceptable"?

I agree.

I also detect a materialistic undertone in your thinking.

I am not a materialist.

A proposition is acceptable to me if it qualifies to be a Justified true belief.

This is a definition of knowledge that is most frequently credited to Plato and his dialogues. The concept of justified true belief states that in order to know that a given proposition is true, one must not only believe the relevant true proposition, but one must also have justification for doing so. In more formal terms, a subject S knows that a proposition P is true if and only if:

P is true
S believes that P is true, and
S is justified in believing that P is true

Nice attempt at diverting the topic of why you believe in your god. (Well, not really because it makes no sense at all.) By your reply, you seem to agree then that you believe in your god NOT for the same reason that I would believe in a person as you originally claimed. So back to the drawing board. Why do you believe in your god?

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

The command does not cohere with what God has said.

Sure it does.

"You must completely destroy the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, just as the LORD your God has commanded you. Deut 20:17"

Fucking liar.

To you they are synonymous. By this reasoning, if you exercise faith in anything you are also gullible.

We don't.

I love it how I have to put words into your mouth and second guess everything you write. Does this mean that you don't equate having a desire for righteousness with being a Christian or converting to Christianity, but see the latter merely as an (inevitable?) implication of the former?

If so, do you think that it is a positive contribution to the world from someone to have a desire for righteousness?
