Have you ever owned a dog from puppyhood to old age? That dog knows no God. He lives each moment for what it is? Humans could only hope to be so lucky. Unfortunately, our intellect alerts us to the fact that these moments are fleeting and many of us need a God to counter that.I am always looking for Habs cards seq #'d 24/xx

habs, though I agree with your post, I would like to add that at the root of most religions it is about living in the now

wickabee, I would say that is for people who are seeking a reward from religion, or someone who fears death, or perhaps someone with different views than mine.
Hinduism, Jainism, Taoism, and in my view, even Christianity are about who we are now and what we do now, the heaven/hell thing is the end results.

There is a difference between, religion and a relationship. Sgt York received religion and then killed a battalion by himself, so that is what is said. A relation with God first starts with acknowledging that God does exist.

but isn't Christianity more about doing good in the now purely in order to be rewarded by passing through heaven?
I agree many are enticed with the idea of heaven and immortality, but if you are concentrating on the goal you will miss out on everything along the way, perhaps for some it is the journey rather than the destination.
but each to their own, I am not the decider of what is the right way.
