No one was trying to force scriptures down anyone's throat. I was simply replying to the point that no oneeds a book to teach right and wrong and that it is not always clear.
I too have had an experience with God. I know Jesus Exists too!

Christianity teaches we are not rewarded for good deeds, our good deeds are like dirty rags to God
Where did you learn that?
Read Matthew 25:31-46; It pretty much conflicts with your assessment of Christianity and God's view on the good works of his followers.
Also Jesus himself even states. Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven Luke 6:2

You can have peace, tolerance, love and joy, while Abiding in Christ.
So to be blunt, if there were no God, no Heaven, or no Hell, I'd be a monster.
If it does good by that standard, I ought to be headed in the right direction at the end of it all. Let heaven take care of itself.
