      As a believer we are to gather together and Praise and worship our God,
      since we are gathering together and discussing The Word of God, the world calls us a religion

      There is a distinction.  Everyone has beliefs (not just about religion, but about themselves, other people, money, how to treat people etc).  But not everyone follows a prescribed belief system (religion).

        Baileybear, I do not know what kind of churches you have gone to, but the churches I go to A person can state their thoughts about something, you are not asked to follow blindly, If you do not go along with something, you speak up, you are to discuss the Word not just listen and follow

    Religion is an ordered set of Beliefs, and practices that make up a way or a direction for following a path to God.

    and  for those who participate in it, it provides a pre formed set of ideas, rituals, behaviors used for like minded folks to gather and follow along with each other- (support and encouragement togeather), to accomplish the practice of following that path to God. It is nothing more. Unless it is exagarated and abused to become something else or worse..

    Religion is not God, God is the end result of Belief.
    The practice of how, is the execution of the Path. There is a difference.

    If you Believe you choose God, the path is im-material.

    A believer is a believer, reguardless. She or He makes a choice    smile

    Jesus Christ established the way of life to the path to GOD and this is LOVE PEACE FREE. Be this and you will know and walk with GOD moment by moment every day for the rest of your life on the earth and throughout all eternity. Just casting this out to you as a freebie. Do with it whatever you want to do with it. This is the answer and your answer to the question. As Jesus said: Don't cast your pearls before swine. Matthew 7:6.
