What does no religion mean?
They have not yet chosen one or they are not interested in having one at all under any circumstance.
I know it's mind-blowing, but...probably the latter.

First, ask what does having a religion mean? Did Moses have a "religion?" David? What exactly was the religion of Christ?

All the names you mentioned had one thing in common--all were witnesses of YHWH(Jehovah) Isaiah 43:10, 44:8--Rev 1:5

I believe they "think" for themselves and choose not to be in a cult like group. Most religions TO ME are cults.

In my LONG life, the only "religion" that has made sense to me and really helped me thru life is Science of Mind (SOM).

Did Moses even exist? Did the Christ of the Gospels exist? Asking what they did or believed when we don't even know whether they existed (and quoting the Bible proves nothing), seems futile.

No, the one thing that all those names have in common was that they were Jewish, even your Jesus (YHWH or whatever you want to call him) was Jewish and Judaism was his religion. There was no Christianity at that time.

Yes and from Moses on up until this very day--Every Israelite was taught, served and worshipped a single being God named-YHWH(Jehovah) taught to Jesus as well. But Israel was cut off( Matt 23:37-39) of being Gods chosen for rejecting the Messiah God sent to them. A new religion began-Acts 24:5) It was NOT the religion that came out of Rome. Jesus real religion serves the God Israel serves. No trinity god exists. The religion that came out of Rome created that false god at their councils.

Jesus was baptised.

Religion demands faith.
God doesn't.
God wants spiritual fruits, not religious nuts.

God called Abraham-friend. Because he had faith. Many seem to think God actually wanted Abraham to kill Issac, Abraham would have because he had faith in God that he could bring Issac back. God made future promises to Abraham concerning Issac. So Issac couldn't end right there. Actually God was showing mankind how terrible it is for one to ask a parent to kill their child. Mortals were asking that of God. It was the only just way to resolve the issues. God knows exactly why. He chose correctly. Its mortals who have twisted most of truth into oblivion from false reasonings.
