What is spirituality without religion?
A brief look at the web gave me rather varied definitions for 'spirituality' so please explain which definition you are refering to.
I think that many people in the world believe in the supernatural and think there is good and evil and possibly a God or gods and the Devil or devils but do not have very defined ideas about any of it. They then follow whatever religion is most suitable or appears to make the most sense but could hardly be called 'true believers' as they would switch religions quite readily if circumstances change.
5However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness. 6David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:
7"Blessed are they
whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered.
