Not belief. Jesus never said that belief superceded faith. It's faith that matters. The details of that faith are less important than the existence of strong faith.

Jesus told us that he likes his souls very hot or very cold. This says that what counts is great faith, either completely for him or against him. He likes nothing in between. The very fact that he likes people who are cold to his teachings tells us that the precise details of your belief do not matter. He is available to all regardless of their beliefs.

Seems to me that you just say the same thing all the time without taking any other viewpoint into consideration. But that is what defines a fundamentalist- one that reason cannot appeal to as all the beliefs are dogmatized and static.
