right in that historical/theological context the will of G-d is not the same as some post 60's humanist version of getting the most out of life. of personal fulfillment. The point was not that religion/G-d is good for us (like vitamins) or serves our needs/wants but that we serve G-d's wants. So not to serve human life but to obey G-d no matter the personal consequences, lots of painful sacrifice involved for those folks and as a holy act.
