Priorities

The issue seems to hinge on whether doing good simply for the sake of doing good carries as much weight with God as the concept of trusting in Him and allowing His Spirit to permeate your daily life.

So, what would you do?

You are presented with a situation:

1. You can do some good for the sake of doing good for a moment.
BUT... in this moment you are unable to "trust in Him and allow His Spirit to permeate your daily life."

OR

2. You can trust in Him and allow His Spirit to permeate your daily life for a moment.
BUT... in this moment you are unable to do some good for the sake of doing good.

Figure out the priority, and you'll figure out if you care whether or not someone is going to hinge an issue on such a thing.

"But, they're the same thing! If I do one, I'm automatically doing the other!"
-if this is your response, then no issue can ever "hinge on" determining which carries more weight
-if this is truly your response, then you don't have an issue with atheism, either
