I Believe In Spirtuality Over Religion

    Definate Difference

    I  think there is a distinct difference between the two.  A person can believe in God and not have any religious affiliation.  I do think it's too bad when religion and God are treated as the same.

    Spirituality Is Real, And More Accurate Than Religion...

    I believe firmly in Spirituality. I don't believe in a God, not in a particular God at least; and I hate how all of the different religions of the world are always in turmoil because they can't agree. I believe that if there is a "Higher Being" he or she is of no religious...

    It Is...lord Krishna Told....

    You need not have any regrets for the past. You need not worry for the future. The present is happening... What did you lose that you cry about? What did you bring with you, which you think you have lost?

    Did You Pray This Prayer?

    1. God Loves You! The Bible says, "God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life" The problem is that . . . 2. All of us have done, said or thought things that are wrong. This is called sin...

    Deceit

    I think that religion is deceitful. Every religion claims to be the one true religion which has led to nothing but holy wars since the dawn of man. I believe that there had to be something which existed prior to the big bang. Something cannot come from nothing. I believe that...

    From Bhagvat Geetaji....

    Dedicate your being to God. He is the one to be ultimately relied upon. Those who know of his support are forever free from fear, worry and sorrow. Whatever you do, do it as a dedication to God. This will bring you the tremendous experience of joy and life...

    What Does Your Idea Of Heaven Look Like?

    I'm not afraid to admit that I'm not a religious person. But that doesn't make me a 'bad' person, because I firmly believe in the basic tenets that are part of most religions: love and respect one another are right at the top of my list. I take issue with anyone who truly...

    There Are So Many Things

    Spirituality can mean a number of different things while religion denotes following a set of beliefs outlined in some way. My husband used to hate when people would say 'I'm not religious, I'm spiritual' but now he understands how I feel about it and why that can be a strong...

    I started life in a very religious family.

    We were in church all the time. It dominates my life so much that I went into religious studies for my first year of college. After seeing ethical violations, morally questionable behavior as prescribed by the religion and abusive behavior I walked away. I hold a deeply...

    All Organized Religions Are Corrupt

      There may be some spiritual truth to most religions but the need for individual power within the organized members corrupts the spiritual message. The focus soon becomes one of political influence and power. With political influence and power comes money and there is...
