Individual beliefs usually are parts of some overall PATTERN-OF-BELIEFS which are regularly associated with each other and supportive of each other as parts of a PARADIGM, a whole way of feeling, thinking, reasoning and behaving. What considerations may we most helpfully have in mind when seeking to discern the relative merits of the diverse PATTERNS-OF-BELIEF which we might helpfully honor, support and hold with reverence --- because they help us and others work together in ways which engender and facilitate: honesty, integrations, healing, cooperation and coherence? Artificial beliefs? Authentic beliefs? Misleading beliefs? Helpful beliefs? Recited beliefs? Lived beliefs? Dishonest beliefs? Honest beliefs? Fear-full beliefs? Reconciling beliefs? Pretentious beliefs? Coherent beliefs? Dis-integrative belief? Integrative beliefs? Formalized beliefs? Informal beliefs? Doctrinal beliefs? Demonstrated beliefs? Contentious beliefs? Cooperative beliefs? Domineering beliefs? Liberating beliefs? Extremists' beliefs? Centering beliefs? Militarists' beliefs? Peacemakers' beliefs? We need to discern what kinds of people affirm the various PATTERNS-OF-BELIEFS. Are particular individual beliefs demonstrated in the lives of people who are authentic, helpful, honest, reconcilers, coherent, integrative, cooperative, liberating and working to be peacemakers in Love? OR, are particular individual beliefs characteristic of the lives of people who are: artificial, misleading, dishonest, fear-full, pretentious, dis-integrative, contentious, domineering, extremists and/or militarists in character? We may discern the natures of beliefs in TERMS OF THE FRUITS OF THE PEOPLE who live in terms of the beliefs. It is IN THOSE TERMS that we can we can best discern the relative merits of PATTERNS of belief which are in competition with other PATTERNS of beliefs. Discern the fruits of each PATTERN of beliefs; rather than contend over individual isolated beliefs --- without regard for the PATTERN of behaviors within which the isolated belief is commonly found.
