One can place their trust in just about anything.
These are just some of the other places where trust could be placed. Law keeping: I keep the Ten Commandments therefore God will take me to heaven. On the other hand: I do not try to earn salvation by the law. I just believe therefore because of my belief God will take me to heaven.
I don’t read the bible for I trust that Hollywood makes good accurate pictures about the bible. Even the ferry tales that they make give lessons that are good enough to help me get ready for heaven.
Then there is spiritualism. I trust that helps me become more god-like. Thus it gets me closer to God and to heaven.
After all is this not what we all want in the end? You trust God and His word to get you there. I trust my way will get me there. Who is to say that one way is right and the other wrong?
The answer to that of course is God our creator is the one to say.
