What is different is how human beings have been interpreting them. There is nothing “wrong” with having different interpretations. What may not benefit you, however, is separating yourself over these differences, making each other wrong because of these differences, and killing each other as a result of these differences.

“Religion is for people who fear hell, spirituality is for people who have been there."- David Bowie
Wow, so there you have it in a nutshell. Most RELIGION is based on fear. Fear of what will happen to you if you go astray (HELL). Fear of not belonging i.e. “If you are not SAVED, YOU will go to HELL” Fear of the retributions of a merciless GOD.
I would add to the quote- spirituality is for people who have been to HELL and REFUSE to return! Hell is here on earth. Right now, this is hell for many people. We live in a me, me, ME society. No one cares much for those who have NOT. So, in a world where there is PLENTY, many do without. Just something to thing about.
God is MERCY, God IS LOVE, God loves each of us no matter what we HUMANS call him/her. God is LOVE. THAT is ALL GOD IS!
