Very thoughtful restatement of the Christianity of my childhood. Might I offer for your consideration the Negative Declaration of Ma'at also known as the Declaration of Innocence from ancient Egyptian theology. You read through the 42 statements and realize that the Judaeo Christian adherents have it easy with just 10 commandments. My favorite from the Negative Confession is this: Hail, An-af, who comest forth from Maati, I have not snatched away the bread of the child, nor treated with contempt the god of my city.
