Religion w/ "Extreme Caution!"
I had a Near Death Experience over two decades ago. I had huge problems with my own religion but I faced raising my children without the beneficial parts of my religion.

God(or whatever name one wants to give to the light)= the sum of all love
asked me personally if I had learned enough about love and the peace part was just an extension of the love... I believe anyone choosing Christianity as the path to love and peace should perhaps do the opposite...by using love and peace to find the tiny bits and pieces of it that are revealed within Christianity to add to that understanding. At the very least, if one's goal is to follow the guidelines of love and peace, I would say to approach Christianity with "EXTREME CAUTION," capitalized for emphasis... but forsaking caution, I would seek to critically examine the denominations of Christianity that emphasize peace and love and reject those that do not(most). That gets rid of most buildings carrying the label of Christianity with wolves as teachers. I would then take a very cautious approach to any other denomination as they may talk love and peace but then they drop a poison pill on you when you least expect it. These are dangerous places to send your children as they make one become easily seduced by propaganda. The music may be all love and peace but then the teachers subtly work in unlove and less than peace from their religious doctrines to support the teacher's distaste for certain types of people... Wolves in sheep's clothing are much less in your face but are hardest to detect and most dangerous to the unsuspecting.
The tiny amount of other churches that mostly teach peace and love should still be approached with caution as guest teachers may slip in and poison you and your dear ones... Run for your life and take your dear ones to the door to prevent these saboteurs from poisoning you and your dear ones. Everyone has a bad day though so if any religious teacher starts spouting a rare bit of unloving and unpeaceful rhetoric, don't let it sink in and if you can't get out of the building fast enough to keep those you love from the unlove, explain to your loved ones that the teacher does not share your views and explain why love and peace would be a better response. If one takes reasonable caution, Christianity and other religions can be beneficial to one's spiritual growth but it may take years of deprogramming if those precautions are not taken with extreme care. I think it is worth it over just letting television and movies determine our views but it is not for those who are too trusting of the motives of religious teachers.
I had to peel away years of religious propaganda, even after I returned, to learn more about peace and love. I think it is of note that one non-Christian I read said he thought highly of many of the words of Jesus in the Bible but he said the Christians are the ones doing most of the killing, selling or giving away guns and weapons to kill people so he was not impressed by Christianity. I personally believe Christianity has been co-opted by its own religious texts, which reveals the bipolar God in it is the most likely villain... over any devil in it... and the teachers of its religions are the most likely to kill someone for their religion from examples of unlove and warlike behavior of many of the followers in their own religious books.
