This all makes me think of the song that goes, I say potatoe you say potahtoe. I don't agree with you, you don't agree with me. That seems to be obvious. No matter how you say it, or how mean you get WHEN saying it, I will not capitulate and say you are right. The simple truth is this, regardless of what a dictionary says a relationship with God and the religion are seen as two seperate things. It's as simple as that. Relationship or religion. Relationship is personal, religion is impersonal. Relationship you (the person involved) are directly part of the interaction (whether it be prayers, talk, worship, reading whatever), in religion you stand in the right place and do only as told and no more. Whether or not that all comes under the big umbrella of the general word "religion" does not matter. Not everything ends beling black or white, there are gray areas too.
I'm not participating in the definition arguement anymore, not when the other person startes getting mean when his opinon isn't caved into!
