Religion is knowing about God (or trying to). Spirituality is knowing God (or trying to).


I am a Bible believing Christian myself, but I happen to believe there are other paths to God, I just have not found them as direct. I am very active in my church, and I do think that is important as to me it is an essential way to Christian living, but I am not down with religion for religion sake - the rules, the judgementalism, the empty traditions. I believe in the Bible and find truth there, but I am no fundamentalist who takes every word literally and tries to force my interpretation on others.


I believe God is love and that spirituality is love, love in the sense of unity, understanding, compassion. Galatians 5: 22-23 says, "... the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."

I think those guys in ISIS would disagree with everyone here.


Don't try to tell me that what I see with my own two eyes ISN'T what I'm seeing with my own two eyes!
