I choose to believer there is a God. That he or she (really both) wants us to be our better selves. But I don't believe a God that has both an old deal and a new deal is as inflexible and hateful as some paint him or her (really both) to be. I worry most about hose who insist they know God's will, and that others don't. Those who have no doubt are the most dangerous IMHO. But if God wanted no doubt, he or she (really both) would leave no room for doubt.
