There is a joke that a religious puzzle was solved by the realization,"Because, there _are_ no attorneys in Heaven !"
Well, if you can't take a pointed joke about your religion the way lawyers enjoy jokes about themselves, you probably have a case of Angelism,
defined as "maintaining the same point of view, no matter what." It can certainly be related to loyalty, dependability, faith, and integrity, but can sometimes mean rigidity and in ability to consider new information.
What shall we do with the rumor that a person's brain is equipped ( or not) with an organ, or gland, or tissue complex for "God feeling"? If true, its functions may offer some choices yet.
For some persons, religious belief uses a form of Angelism, and for others, it's a free-for all with serenity and truth as the purpose.

Go ahead. Use your brain.
You have my permission.

No, wait.
Fill out this form to join my church first. Kidding.
