    approached

    Dear teachers,

    I am in embarrassed circumstances about the proper choice a word in the following passage:

    "The works of your hands" indicates something that comes from man's mind, not the Creator's. Their gods were their own creation, even as their standards were their assessment of right and wrong. Regardless of how men approached life, whether religious or irreligious, atheistic or agnostic, their gods and standards came from minds not in contact with the true God."

    I wonder whether you would make efforts to find a more appropriate word. I know this meaning of the "approach" (for example "approach s.o. gently /tactfully"), but this usage doesn't please me in this case. Maybe "appreciate" will be sound better.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi Tdol,

    Thank you very much. "Viewed" sounds very contemporary and it seems to me very perspectively.

    Thank you again.
