    Agreed. Religions are not required or anything. Nor is anyone's "help" in getting you right with god.

    True.

    All thatÂ’s required is an imagination.

    That is why God created man. It is all about relationships. I continue to say that I am not anchored to any religion, but rather a real and poersonal, living and loving, walking and talking, daily relationship with God in Christ and his Word.

    but it requires a god,

    and possibly one who is reciprocating.

    Well, yes, of course. One does not need religion to have a relationship with God. That's my point.

    I would risk the serpent's bite
    I would dance around with seven
    I would kiss the diamond back
    If I knew it would get me to heaven

    Chorus:
    'Cause I want to get right with God
    Yes, you know you got to get right with God

    I would burn the soles of my feet
    Burn the palms of both my hands
    If I could learn and be complete
    If I could walk righteously again

    I would sleep on a bed of nails
    'Till my back was torn and bleeding
    In the deep darkness of Hell
    The Damascus of my meeting

    I asked God about his plan
    To save us all from Satan's slaughter
    If I give up one of my lambs
    Will you take me as one of your daughters?

    Unfortunately, religion is linked with colonialism, and ethnocide or cultural genocide.

    No... all it requires is a following. Even if that following is only one person.
