If your answer is no, you're on the wrong path.
If my answer is 'no', there is NOT only ONE path to a "belief in a loving almighty creator/father/mother", THEN HOW CAN I BE ON THE WRONG ONE?

I'm sorry Nex, but your logic is flawed.

I think YOU'RE missing the point.

If someone does you a good turn out of the kindness of their heart, do you call it good or do you call it evil?
But what if they're NOT doing you a good turn out of the kindness of their heart? How can you tell, whether it's genuine kindness or manipulation?

Have you never been in a relationship where your partner is being extra kind to you, only to find out that there's something they want you to do for them that you might not even want to do?

That's called emotional blackmail.

Or another case, typical of New Age Hare Krishna:

they come up to you to "give" you a cookie "for free" only to ask you to "give" something to them - "for free"! That's not "doing you a good turn out of the kindness of their heart", that's manipulation and emotional blackmail.
