God and Religion

One of the major flaws of human thinking - consequently affecting human behaviour, attitude and relationships - is to equate God with religion; Christ with the Church.

Religion is basically a means to lead one to God but most of us conveniently settle for religion and God is ultimately, subtly, thrown out of the picture altogether (though His name and image will very well be used as a shield).  Religion makes a caricature of God and it is worshipped as sacred; an individual tries to portray his idea of God arising out of a deep personal experience with God, and he is branded a heretic or a blasphemer.
