Religion is believing in someone else's EXPERIENCE while Spirituality is having your own Experience" - Deepak Chopra
And I agree...because I have always seen myself as someone who is focused more on my personal encounter with God and the relationship, I am personally building with him, while being INSPIRED by the encounter that others might have had, but certainly not driven by it. I'm also quite weary of people who make, other people's lives hectic, because of their false proclamation and the FEAR they inspire with their obsessive religious ways.
The idea that you WIN more souls for God, just by constantly repeating his name and telling them how much of a real Christian you are now is a shame, rather than showing them by the way you live your life, so they can be motivated and decide on their own, if they want to feel the same sort of Goodness, they see radiating through you, in their own lives.
You don't say "Hey, Look at me. I'm a Writer...I've got this to say". And expect people to care what you have to say. You show them, you are a writer first by writing articles, books, blogs, poetry, song etc. that they can read and decide what kind of writer you are and if they like your style or message...and want to become your avid reader.
Same thing for converting souls for God. The recent aggressive marketing of the Gospel has recently been marred with Hate, Fear and Bullying as the Fanatics keep spreading all sorts of content, that instill the fear of damnation, end time and punishment, instead of spreading content that make people excited to actually become Children of God.
Forgetting that with spirituality, comes MORALITY. And morality is doing what is right, regardless of what we are told... while Religion is doing what we are told, regardless of what is right. So the idea that most spiritual people are God-less, is ludicrous. When they only chose to honour the "god" inside of them, because DIVINITY is deep inside us all. Hence the reason why those who claim to be more SPIRITUAL vs RELIGIOUS, might in fact be influencing the world more positively than we realise.
