Ever hear this phrase? There is some truth there. In this perspective, religion is seen as something negative and even detrimental at times to one’s spiritual walk. Common conceptions here might include the idea that I really don’t need a religion or a church or a faith community as long as I still believe in God and sometimes recognize those powerful “spiritual” experiences that might occasional come. Some might even conclude that while God (and this is a Generic God not a name-brand, religious God that we might even call Great Value God) loves them, they really couldn’t possibly talk to God directly even though they are pretty good people who will go to “heaven,” where one doesn’t have to work and every desire is satisfied.
