Religious or Spiritual?

What’s the difference?

Religious people follow a dogma, set by the church, who happens to be man.  This dogma gives them set moral rules to follow.  Which they will, regardless of any detrimental repercussions.

They call it faith.

Spirituality is based on love.  Wars do not begin because of spirituality.  Condemnation is non-existent.  Spirituality embraces all living things.  The spiritual journey is never-ending.

In my mind, I feel insulted if someone tags me as a religious person.

I feel incredibly flattered when someone says I strike them as spiritual.
