1) I think a strict adherence to the truth. People's actions are determined by how they perceive reality, and if they are disingenuous with themselves then I suppose they will tend to be immoral.

2) They fight with and scorn people of other faiths. They use fear as a means of coercion.

3) That God is the totality of all things.

spirituality does not have to be difficult
HMMM!!! Interesting discussion topic. I agree if Emmanual Kant in his three criteria that an action would have to be 1. reversible (do unto others) 2. Universally applied (if it's good for the goose....) and done in freedom for it to be considered a good or moral action. Save for this, I think society should stop judging others when the actions of others harm no one.

2. The problem with organized religion is simple.... Someone has to do the organizing and it usually happens to be organized to suit them, which as we know never works out in the best interest of the many.

3. The mere fact that we are pondering the existence of god suggest that he already exists. The problem would be everyone's perception of the word existence.
