    George, I think we're on the same page on this one. My hypothetical
    interpretation was, in part, a reaction to the original post that suggested
    biblical approval for the idea "that cunning [in the form of trickery &
    theft] is favored in God's eyes."

    I was also saying that not everyone who claims divine approval or
    instruction actually has it. The comparison to some of the claims associated
    with 9/11 make that obvious.
