That's the idea, yes.

You're not confused at all, you've seen the crux of the issue. :-)

1. In general, these would be OK:

I feel I should believe in the father, the son, and the holy ghost.
I feel I should have one God and no others before him.

I believe in the father, the son, and the holy ghost.
I have one God and no others before him.

People of my faith believe in the father, the son, and the holy ghost.
People of my faith have one God and no others before him.

And these wouldn't:

People should believe in the father, the son, and the holy ghost.
People should have one God and no others before him.

My faith says people should believe in the father, the son, and the holy ghost.
My faith says people should have one God and no others before him.

My faith says I should believe in the father, the son, and the holy ghost.
My faith says I should have one God and no others before him.

2. A primary goal of this site is to be supportive. If the foundation of a faith puts down those of other faiths, it's not in my view supportive, so as a general rule, I'd rather it were discussed elsewhere.
