B

Every person is equal, and the key to understanding God is deep meditative thinking and intellectual rationalization.

C

God is a vengeful, angry God, and the only way to get into heaven is to repent sins and have faith.

God has pre-ordained who is damned and who is saved, and living a sinless live is still no guarantee of being saved.

E

There is no singular deity, but a pantheon of deities, each in control of some aspect of life.
