That's right. When we as earthly mortals can fully comprehend Divine Nature, and the transcendent mystical truths of our world, then we will understand those of Glorantha. Why would you expect it to be any different?

I'm not sure I'm reading you entirely fairly, however -

Are you're telling me that philosophy in my glorantha _aught_ to be a compromised, moraly partisan, cheap parody of earthly philosophy. I'm not supposed to run a Glorantha which contains the same moral dilemas and philosophical contradictions as the real world. If so, why?

Nils, let's suppose for a moment that the ultimate religious truths of Glorantha are the same as those of the real world. Please explain what they are to me, in clear and unambiguous terms, so that I can apply them in my game.
