Being religious you follow the dogmatic and scriptural traditions and set of rituals in a institutionalized religious system with many hidden and revealed restrictions and being spiritual is knowing and understanding that you are the law and that you are one within all things and all things within you.
Being spiritual is to know and understand that you are a divine spark from the Source "G-d" and that when you harm others then, you harm yourself because you are one with all things and all things are one with you and salvation is within you even before you were born, you alredy were even before the universe was, you already were with me.
Being Religious as in a belief system, means you follow a mans teaching, and not God.
Being Spiritual means you follow a type of Spirit, this is where many are deluded and only imagine that "Spiritual" means good and ethereal and godly. There are two types of minor "Spirits" they are "Gods Angels" (messengers) and "Fallen Angels (demons)"
There is only One Major Spirit "The Holy Spirit" and that is God, to whom all spirits submit.
So being "Spiritual" could mean you have Jesus Christ living in you as in Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ and is Christ and also God.
You have the influence from a Fallen Angel a demon an evil spirit .
Never ever does an Angel of God live in man, only the Holy Spirit or and Evil Spirit.
Take your pick
Being religious is generally and outside appearance sort of thing. Such as going to church and stuff like that.
Being spiritual is a self thing. It's about what you truly believe, not what others think you believe.
At least that's how I sort of define it.
