Legalism

I believe that after the obvious basics
are taken care of, mainly Christianity boils down to attitude. I
believe that a man who genuinely seeks to serve God, and tries to the
best of his ability to understand and do God’s will, will be
acceptable to God, even if he winds up being wrong about a bunch of
doctrinal stuff. I do not believe that a man who apathetic toward God will be acceptable to him. One who has a misconception toward some aspect of God’s law is another matter. God is able to deal with sins of
inadvertence and ignorance, but He has a problem with apathy (makes
Him want to spew, as you mentioned) and willful misconduct (Mt 12:32,
Lk 12:47). Like you said, the “my interpretation” vs. “your
interpretation” is in God’s bailiwick. He is able to make His servant
to stand.
