What do you believe?!

Shouldn't faith be a bit more than group-think? It's so riddled with hypocrisy, it stops making sense with a fierce velocity. In light of conflicting claims, most of which have similar feet of clay, how can we think that choosing one equally valid and invalid type of Christianity over another is pivotal. Do you really think that Christ is going to quiz you on the minutiae of theological effluvia? I'm not Catholic, but balance is so dramatically crucial. The true essence of Christianity is found in St. Francis before it is found in Jonathan Edwards. The courage of God is found in Thomas More, more than it is found in Martin Luther. I believe that actions speak louder than words.

"Do you really think that Christ is going to quiz you on the minutiae of theological effluvia?"
After looking up some words in the dictionary... I answer: No

But can their be faith without knowledge? Even the "minutiae of theological effluvia" matters, because what a person knows about God dictates their belief in Him - and out of belief that is true, comes the visible outflow of actions.

I don't think just because someone wrote things and did not practice them to the fullest makes their writings any less vaulable - for would they not confess that they were lacking? But their heart desired for the better things - for the things they wrote as the ideal, just like all of us, I believe feel.
