    I know of myself as one who know and walk with GOD moment by moment. This is the highest destiny that an human being can have while living on the earth. To obtain this will cost you everything in this world to have this kind of relationship with GOD. I do have this kind of relationship with GOD.

    Definitely spiritual! I'm certainly not into religion but I do believe in the afterlife, a Higher Being and angels ...

    Spiritual. There are too many religions and I would hate to pick one. Also most religions rely on you to be spiritual, so some people could be both.

    I am Born Again.
    Rev 3:5     He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

    I would definitly consider myself both. I am religious because I do believe in Jesus Christ and I do follow  the word of God (The Bible). I however do truly believe that having a strong relationship with God is spiritual. I feel that there are a lot of people who say they are christians but it is mostly for status or their own selfish reasons. I believe that people look to far into it. God is a loving God and all he wants with you is a relationship with you. No matter your faults or fears. It is about a trusting and faithful relationship that no one else could ever give you. God can give you a peace in life that nothing ever could.

    I am the Spiritual Type. Getting in tune with your inner self and being completely honest about who and what you are is a very enlightening experience

    I think of myself as both. My religious beliefs drive my spiritual awareness. I don't see how you can separate them if you follow a religion.

    Definitely spiritual!  I think religion is like studying history, without true feeling/meaning and restrictive.  One's spirit is individual/personal, and one's spirituality is based on his/her personal relationship with God.

    I am more religious.  I believe in a God and pray from a selection of prayers I'd learnt when young.

    The spiritual side comes from believing in a God, the Holy Spirit and angels and hence why I've always associated the spiritual with religion when I see some practicing a spiritual life through using karmas and meditation in their lives.

    Yet religious practices use prayers in a meditative form which helps the person to relax.

    In some ways, I'd like to develop my spiritual side more but I always revert to religious beliefs and practices in my daily life and I've got to say, it really helps me throughout the day.

    I am more spiritual. Rightly or wrongly, my idea of God just does not fit in with the views of organised religion.

    I'm a Spiritual, because being spiritual itself being religious, religious towards your doings.
