We believe that God is big enough to give every nationality their own religion, as he’s given them their own taste in food, in plants, in furniture, and housing.  I think that each religion has their basic Christ-ish way to get to the Everlasting God.  As far as "Jesus only" kind of people, I as a gentile must believe in Jesus.  But I do not condemn, say, the Jewish [people], for not having Jesus.  I believe that God is smart enough to make different nationalities and creeds and people, a mediator to get towards him—if you need that.

Everybody’s under God’s planet, and God is the Almighty, the Beginning, the End, the Alpha, the Omega.  He’s Big Daddy.  He gives out these little soldiers and sons and angels and saints to help everybody else get through to him.  I’m not the "Jesus-only or you’re going to hell" kind of guy. 

Do you think that as a couple your faith has grown? 

Dog:  Oh, yeah.  We’ve challenged each other. We pray if we get in an argument really bad—we stop and hold our hands and we pray and [say], "Lord, calm her down right now. [Chuckles].  Lord, calm us down."

We see miracles happen in our children’s lives and our lives.  We look at each other, we say a prayer, and then it’s answered.  So we know we wouldn’t have got that answer without God.

Before you go out on a bounty hunt with the rest of the team, you pray as a group.  What are you praying for then?

Dog: We pray for the other person, protection, faith…

Beth:  Safety.

Dog:  Safety.  To "please help us find the guy."  Everything in general.  Because [bounty hunting] is a contact sport—it's a dangerous thing we do.  We pray that we don’t get shot or hurt seriously.
