Exactly. I, personally do not understand religion myself. I was brought up in a Christian house, went to church, but never could believe most of what
'the church' preached.
I DO believe there is a higher power, but i believe it has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with ANY religion.
As NAS said "Why must i have to have religion, if i believe in God?"
Religion is the focal point in almost every war, and some condone/promote violence, if their particular belief system is not followed.
We, HUMANS are all the same, and IMHO religion is just another way to keep us divided, and to keep the fighting going.
We are all, in essence gods, we are part of our god 'source,' and worshopping(sp?) God, in religious terms, says we are, in essence, less the God,
when we are all part of the GOD source.
I am not saying, in any way, that Jesus Christ, Mohammud, and Moses, were not what they say they, because they may very well have been divine beings
sent here to help humanity, however, i believe theit messages have been deluded by those in charge to keep us at bay.
