O Lord, Please Don't Let Religion Be Misunderstood

In the midst of a discussion on "Religion v. Relationship with God" on Facebook

I am a firm believer in relationship with God. I think that the term "religion" is very much misunderstood. I think that the real problem is not religion-- a system of connecting with God-- but ritual without relationship. Religion does not have to be that, even as education or politics must be without relationship. It is both together that is a benefit. 

Anyone who goes to church regularly has religion. That's not bad, but they also must have relationship or else the religion is worthless.

re: the fb conversation about your tract? if so, it's not you, it's religion in general in our and other cultures.
