Can you be religious and not spiritual and vice versa?

Can you be a person so dedicated to your religion that you have no real sense of spirituality? Does spirituality led to separation from religious traditions?

    Great post chaturrajneesh, you hit the nail on the head! That is very close to Traditional African Religion as well as others. The separation was Greek dualism.

    Exactly, though I don't necessarily think it's a bad thing to live by a religious standard without understanding it, as long as you aren't extreme about it. The problem arises when people use religion to justify themselves in negative acts.
