    The two words certainly could not be interchanged. They aren't synonymous, so choose where you stand.

    I like to consider myself spiritual, but not religious, especially as I was raised Catholic. Having been part of a religion, especially one that dominates (and dominated) so much of the world for so long, I know it's not for me. Organized belief in a figurehead just doesn't feel as personal or loving as a one-on-one connection with the universe, like I think we all have.

    I consider myself as both. Man is a spiritual being, and religion provides a system to manifest spirituality. I'm a Catholic, and I believe that when Jesus came down on Earth, he built the Church and sent the Holy Spirit to guide it. I think the two are intertwined and should not exist without the other.

    I was raised Catholic from birth and have already gone through almost all the sacraments. However, as I grew older, I discovered spirituality. I believe in omnism, which means that I don't believe in one religion and think that only one religion is the truth, but that every religion has something in common and something true about it. I am still catholic but I respect every kind of faith and would like to get to know all of them.
