It's difficult for me to consider these words are anything but the thoughts of human beings. I see no reason I should consider them revealed truths from the Creator of the universe.

If God were a just being I would expect him to judge everyone by the principles they themselves claimed to believe in (their level of hypocrisy), but, if he wanted to encourage learning his mind, perhaps give extra points depending on how close those beliefs matched God's own. If God wanted to encourage effort, he could give extra points to believers in religions that require more of its members. Perhaps an atheist who lived atheism with little hypocrisy could get as favorable a judgement as a theist who believed too many falsehoods about God.

It sounds funny to me to try to think seriously about the Creator of the universe worrying about little ol' me and everyone else. I would think he'd have more important things to do. I would if I were him.
