Sorry you disagree with my interpretation. That, however is the
strength of the scouting spirit, we can all be reverent in our own way
by meeting our own concept of "Duty to God".
You obviously prescribe to the verses quoted from Matthew in
the New Testament, and, you have that right. But you do not have the
right to require others to accept your interpretations.
That is called freedom of religion which is a part of our (In the U.S.)
Bill of Rights. By accepting the fact that we are in fact
all different, and have various views on religious doctrine, we are
the spirit of the Scout Law.
