    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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?

    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...
