- If a 'spiritual' path diminishes another, then just how 'spiritual' can it be?
The problem is most take 'religions' and mistake them for 'spiritual path's. Religions are man-kind made and meant to take one OFF of the spiritual path and this is where the My path is better than your path set's in. The funny thing is even when some people 'religion hop' (patent on the way) they still say that the religion they just hopped over too is better than the one they just bungied from when before they used to say the direct opposite. Only 'man-kind' can cause such confusion!
Brother Info ... i've heard this argument, spiritual vs religion, but i see no great big difference.
Folk act as though theirs is "spiritual" while the next person's is "religious", and they attack from this perspective. It's still an attack, still an attempt to diminish the other person's relationship with the Creator. All of them, spiritual or religious, are virtually the same. The difference between the two words are often vague, like man made vs god made, with no easily definable delineations.
That just creates more room and reason to attack each other, and has been used for that purpose.
Yes, that's true too, folk change paths, and are as zealous about the latter, as they were the first.
