No ï worship god but no religion is needed.
God told me so.
Jehovah tells us:
(Hebrews 10:24, 25) . . .And let us consider one another so as to incite to love and fine works, 25 not forsaking our meeting together, as some have the custom, but encouraging one another, and all the more so as you see the day drawing near.
God's word commands you to gather together (meet as in meeting attendance) with fellow believers. If you disobey him, that is your prerogative, and you may claim God told you to disobey his word. But would he really do that? And if you disobey him, aren't you really saying that you are not subject and reject him?

Sorry, I have to stop talking to you, I had a bite and in my mouth and almost died as I read your nonsense.
You poor thing didn't get it? That's okay reread open your mind a little, it doesn't hurt, you can do it.
You're so wrong you almost killed someone. What does that tell you?
In fact I have saved many people. And will continue to do so, so long as God permits. His word is truth. And there is nothing that can stand against it.
If you cannot see it, that is understandable. For it takes spirit. The physical man that counts the spirit as foolish cannot comprehend it. Even though it is so simple and easy to understand. For spiritual things are considered foolishness to the unspiritual. And thus they cannot perceive or comprehend it.
And thus you laugh and mock God's word. It is not you that does it, it is God's word itself that prevents such people from understanding just as it states:
(1 Corinthians 1:27-31) . . .but God chose the foolish things of the world to put the wise men to shame; and God chose the weak things of the world to put the strong things to shame; 28 and God chose the insignificant things of the world and the things looked down on, the things that are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, 29 so that no one might boast in the sight of God. 30 But it is due to him that you are in union with Christ Jesus, who has become to us wisdom from God, also righteousness and sanctification and release by ransom, 31 so that it may be just as it is written: “The one who boasts, let him boast in Jehovah.”
(1 Corinthians 2:6-10) 6 Now we speak wisdom among those who are mature, but not the wisdom of this system of things nor that of the rulers of this system of things, who are to come to nothing. 7 But we speak God’s wisdom in a sacred secret, the hidden wisdom, which God foreordained before the systems of things for our glory. 8 It is this wisdom that none of the rulers of this system of things came to know, for if they had known it, they would not have executed the glorious Lord. 9 But just as it is written: “Eye has not seen and ear has not heard, nor have there been conceived in the heart of man the things that God has prepared for those who love him.” 10 For it is to us God has revealed them through his spirit, for the spirit searches into all things, even the deep things of God.

Jehovah (actually there is no "J" in the Hebrew language) so it would be Yahovah (or Yahweh).
Anyway, "Jehovah" did not say that. Scholars aren't exactly sure who wrote the book of Hebrews...some say Paul, some say Barnabas, and some can't decide.
(2 Timothy 3:16) All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness,
Acts 5 35 Then he addressed the Sanhedrin: “Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. 36 Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing. 37 After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered. 38 Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail.
39 But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”
Torah--"We gave Moses the Book and followed him up with a succession of messengers," (Sura 2:87).
Psalms--"We have sent thee inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him: we sent inspiration to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms," (4:163).
Gospel--"It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong)," (3:3).
Also, "And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Law that had come before him: We sent him the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation of the Law that had come before him: a guidance and an admonition to those who fear Allah," (5:46).

In other words, the "correct" path to Heaven may have been lost a long time ago and we're all following frauds right now.
