Spirituality vs. Religion:  Spirituality vs. Religion Spirituality is at the core of all religions. However, all religions have forgotten this core and fiction seems to have replaced fact. Religion has come to mean 'blind organized faith' and has become dogmatic and fundamentalist in its views.

It is based more on personal experiences rather than the experiences of others.
