Religion has brought a bad name to God

Religion has brought a bad name to God. When we choose religion over God we try to become God. The need to experience God is paramount to our meaningful existence. We can lose sight of this in the routine performance of religious ritual and religion becomes the end rather than a means to being in touch with our creator.

Equally important in our religious duties is how we conduct ourselves towards our fellow human beings. Our relationships with our spouses, our children, our parents, our friends, our neighbors our adversaries and foes are equally a part of our experience of God.

At the same time people frustrated with the judgmental nature of religious practice have been advocating a separation of religion from the affairs of men. Without meaning to they are trying unsuccessfully to create a Godless society.
