    Before I get started on the topic of this thread, know that I am making an analysis about the behavior of Christian's that I have observed online and offline. Therefore any Christian here who would like to challenge me on this topic can do so appropriately, but please refrain yourself from derailing this thread over irrelevant religious controversies.

    Now this is exactly the topic itself.

    Controversial religious beliefs, practices, traditions, that each of you has personalized in accordance to how you sense your God. But evidently every other believer you interact with does not ultimately sense the same God as you. Obviously this must be true, otherwise Christianity would not be so splintered, and so divided, because truth can't be divided when you rationalize it.

    Each Christian claims they know the truth, but if in reality those Christian's are mostly at each other's throats over what they personally believe is the truth, then the truth in this case can only be subjective to them.

    Since object truth can not be divided, rather it unites and binds people as a whole. But this is not what I have observed about Christianity in my lifetime. So, why is this?

    "O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jerem 10:23

    But then again:

    "Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts." Prov 21:2

    The way I understand it there must be some topics God doesn't care enough about to correct people on them. Further those topics are not essential for salvation and sanctification, because otherwise he would care about them enough to bring about correction. Whats it to God if people got something wrong in their theology that isn't essential? And if they also have something important wrong whats it if they also have something unimportant wrong? Let God be true and every man a liar.

    Now there are important topics which divide Christians, typically which originated from false prophets. The enemy would use these to prevent people from coming to faith in Jesus Christ. The intent of these evil spirits being damnation.

    Leviticus 19:29
    29"'Do not degrade your daughter by making her a prostitute, or the land will turn to prostitution and be filled with wickedness.

    (The question is, do I desire forgiveness from your God for breaking this commandment?)

    I already answered your questions in the OP and you effectively ignored them.
    As to what you desire, it is not truth, so you are knocking on the wrong door.

    Generally, I don't think Christian's are up to the challenge of tackling a world they believe is so full of sin. Because I've personally encountered so many of them who go into meltdown when they are confronted by the raw side of human demonics.

    People bearing the label of Christian come in lots of types and even the real ones are at different levels in their walk with God. You err when you presume they are all the same and should all react the same to you.

    As to tackling man's world full of sin, some inexperienced may attempt to do that, but it is not needed nor required. What is required to make to the end of the road God has set before us is surrender.

    Well
    Well now you know what our Father struggles with. Yet He continues to strive with us and correcting those who seek the truth in Him.

    There's always going to be someone out there who'll approve or disapprove of what I'm thinking, but in reality I need neither opinion.

    Matthew 6:23
    23But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

    Yet this is the very thing you are doing...first walk the walk you desire to see in others and be the example they should follow. Otherwise your observation seems pointless.
    If you have conquered the walk of perfect love then it should reflect as one in which Jesus walked. Unconditional in it's acceptance of others regardless of their faults.

    You say you need neither opinion, so then if I may ask, why are you here on a Christian forum where there is always likely to be someone giving one of those opinions?
