I think categorizing religions and fighting over whose religion is the right one has made it appear as if 'religion' has no soul, love or passion while really it's the self righteous nature of people which have no souls in them.
Just my opinion. Interesting write, made me think :)

Thank you for your thoughts!
Some congregations don't provide heat and warmth just because it's a group activity. They can be a rhythmless motion, an ugly dance. Their smile can be a cult.

And that will always be cold, when they don't give back. I enjoyed your poem. Very creative. Thanks for sharing.

religion is such a fascinating thing, and your piece brings up interesting ideas, to have no soul, no love and no passion does that really mean to have a "cold religion" ?

What a wonderfully thought provoking piece! Great work!

I really appreciate those words! Thank you!
Religion - like love, is up to the person involved. If a heart's needy, so will its owner be. To find anything kind, warm - and above all - loving, one needs more than words..

Completely agree with your first sentence. That said, this is just my own personal takeaway. :)

Sorry to say but I don't agree with this.
There is one god and one universal religion of Love.
I do mean gibberish but this is what I believe.
And that is no cold religion.
Again this is my opinion and its good to find people writing out what they believe even if I disagree.
