Christianity- Simple or Complicated

we live in an incresingly pluralistic society from a religious perspective . There are so many religions, wannabe religions , denominations, splinter groups that one can hardly keep track even if there were a scorecard . If one doesnt like the prevailing religious options available, there is always the option to take a little from this group, a little from that and throw in some creative  ideas of ones own  and voila a new belief system . More and more though it seems that many if not most of the adherents to whatever religion have a common core belief- there are no absolutes. For an evangelical Christian this is mind boggling . For example to posit that there is only one way to God is generally seen as intolerant, bigoted , narrow minded or terribly presumptous. Let me toss out this thought . What if we were told what  God required of us, wouldnt that be a way for us to know what really matters , regardless of what any religion said.Food for thought- Micah 6:8. What does the the Lord require but to do justice , love mercy and walk humbly with your God . Tomorrow I would like to dig deeper into those words/
