Religion is for people who are afraid to go to hell. Spirituality is for people who have already been there.
of The Lakota Nation
Many people in the world believe that all Christians serve God out of fear of Hell. While that may be true for some people, it is not true for everyone. The above quote is true in that people who have suffered deeply many times turn to God for solace they find nowhere else. This type of spirituality has nothing to do with the fear of hell.
No one wants to go to hell but it is possible to have a relationship with God that is not based on the fear of punishment. When you rise above the fear of punishment in your walk with God you have taken a step toward knowing God in spirit and truth! That is the first step on your journey to understanding.
When you rise from the ashes of life's failure to start over in the presence of the Almighty, you will find comfort, joy, and love, as well as enlightenment!
Just a little point to ponder! Blessings!
