However someone wants to see God or worship IT isn't our business.
I have a question. Is God in the bible? Jesus says that we are in him and he in us, if Jesus is God then how can we be in him and him in us if God is completely separate from the universe?
I'm "attacking" it because I see it as wrong and a suppressor of true spirituality. I don't see it as any different from someone who "attacks" (points out the flaws) of a certain political candidate. I don't really feel that I "need" to do it, it's just something that I take an interest in. Not the attacking part, but spirituality and religion in general.
Jesus is not God and has never ever has been God and has never professed to be God.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven; by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man.
Most Christians would disagree with you.

I agree, Jesus wasn't God, but tell that to 9/10 Christians and they'll call it blasphemy. If you are a Christian and don't believe Jesus was God then you are in the vast minority.
You have no idea of what you have just posted without a source and even if you had posted that source it is not of true Christianity.
He is not declared as God by Christianity and never has been and has never declared that He came down from heaven for - Quote "Us Men" Unquote.
3 Know that the Lord Himself is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Jesus is Lord isn't he? The bible that you believe is infallible says that the Lord IS God. Are you disagreeing with what is supposedly infallible?

God is not a thing - God is everything - all that is and is not.
There is nothing separate from all that is - but words and concepts make believe there is.
I don't understand your need to attack religion or define for others how it helps them on their spiritual path.
It's from the Nicene Creed! You know, the one that Christians based their dogma on! It was meant to counter your claim that Christians don't believe Jesus is God. Remember?

But even if this exists on a spiritual higher level in Islam Pantheism is defined as idolatry and Sufis are having problem with their practicing of experiencing the oneness.
The oneness. Or at least part of reality seem to be going towards oneness.
