In Part 3 of my series for the Catholic Weekly, we encounter the problem with being “spiritual, not religious”: namely that virtually everything wrong with the modern conception of the Christian life is demonstrated by those who do so. Because “religion” means doing the stuff we say we believe and not just gassing on about it while ignoring the poor, the sick, the old, the refugee and the least of these as Christianists constantly do. Religion says “If you do not love your neighbor whom you have seen, you do not love God whom you have not seen.”
