Ok, back on topic. :)

A person who "knows" there is a God as opposed to "believing" there is a God, will do whatever they think their God wants.
This includes all of the "Do Nots" in the UMC.

That is what I meant by Religion can pervert the UMC.
Not every atrocity in Abrahamic Religions was committed for self preservation.

'A person who "knows" there is a God as opposed to "believing" there is a God, will do whatever they think their God wants.'

Human error aside, a person who knows God also knows His will, not think they know it.

"That is what I meant by Religion can pervert the UMC."

And that's what I would call human error.

"Not every atrocity in Abrahamic Religions was committed for self preservation."

Here's where I have to wonder what "in Abrahamic Religions" means. Did God order atrocities, or did they occur due to some other influence?
