Fascinating, Jack. Jesus said “God looks on the heart,” so I believe what’s in a person’s heart as manifested in that person’s actions (i.e. kindness, compassion, altruism, etc.) is more important than what that person professes to believe. Jesus was at his most critical when it came to religious leaders who were so caught up in the rules and rightness of their religion that they ignored the essential core of it, which was to care about others.
