i dont think people understand what the word religion means,,,,it has the same meaning and end in mind as the word yoga--(to combine/link up with)or to merge with the supreme,so whatever your doing that is bringin you closer to God,connecting with,then that is religion or yoga,anything else is just sentimental or all in the head and if your religion is not doing this then its not religion.

While there are 'a thousand' ways in which people come to Jesus Christ, God has only provided ONE Way for people to come to Him. Jesus spoke of this in John 14:6 ....".... no man comes to the Father except by me."

Thus, Acts 4:12 stands as written, "There is no name given under heaven by which we must be saved."

James further tells us that believing in God, is not enough. He said, "Even the demons know there is one God and tremble" -

Of course there is. It is mentioned perhaps a dozen times throughout both the Old and New Testaments. My favorite reference is James 1:27, which states:

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

My post was in regards to a name of a religion. In modern times religion is an entity of "spiritual" beliefs which is recognized secularly; i.e. rights, freedoms, doctrines, adherrents, and govenmental status (tax/legal).

The OP certainly sounded like a comparison between secular religions. As I said, there is no "religion," as asked for here, mentioned in scripture.

I thought my post made a distinction in behavior with the application of Christlike behavior and principles which is what you alluded to in your post here.
