There’s a trend that’s been going on for some time now, and I’m sure it’s still picking up pace, for people to identify as being spiritual, just not religious. It’s as if there’s a distaste at the notion of being religious. And if there is indeed that distaste (I’ve experienced it myself), that speaks an unfortunate volume on the state of religion.
I feel as if that distaste is largely due religion’s death. I don’t mean that it’s dying in the same sense as becoming mythology. I mean that it lost touch with it’s heart, spirituality. Without spirituality, religion becomes little more than a dry husk.
