I used to be high on Christ too, Pop's, but I came down.
I can still relate to your devotion to the Golden rule, though. I have a similar code of conduct, but I don't elevate it to Holy Commandment.
I also agree with Baruch, that there is value in fiction. But I feel there is a lot of danger in believing fiction to be the Word of God.
Words can be used in all sorts of ways.
What is holy is what is different and what is different from the greedy of the masses interpretation general? Something similar to the golden rule? Indeed
Yet though this stems from the conscience it in no way is not of GOD and life and the very will of GOD for IT's creation or formation.
There is a higher calling for life as a whole then to simply be consumed by personal want.
Life as a whole would advance and benefit from actually adhering to the things that can be known through the selfless conscience.
These writings you reference can be, and are a reminder for those few who can actually understand, relate, and act according to that holy will. That spiritual existence that is the life of us all yet so many are blinded to by pride greed fear and manipulation of self through societal means and norms which are mandated by those greedy souls in high places.
Sorry, probably sounds like some rant.
It has been my experience that those who identify as atheists or closet deists are actually more receptive to the truth that can be known from within.
