Good story, but Christianity is a religion and a relationship.
26 If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless. 27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
We must be careful not to oversimplify.
But I get your point and am glad that He has saved you & your wife.
And you are serving Him.
So keep on serving & rejoicing!
