CNN chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour and former U. S. President Bill Clinton discuss the recent struggles in Israel and Lebanon, the daily clashes in Iraq and the question of whether religion can be a solution - and not just a source of conflict.

Religion will never be a solution for humanity. Religion blatantly misrepresents God as it is not His creation. Religion was man's invention. As Adam in the garden hid behind fig leaves upon discovering his nakedness, mankind also has sought to hide behind religious affiliations instead of pursuing a relationship with the Creator of heaven and earth.

Religion is all about doing in an effort to become good enough to curry favor with God. Christ however died on the cross for us, having done the biggest work, so we can be liberated from religion and having to do good works. God is a Spirit and He desires humanity to enter the realm of the Spirit rather than be duped by dead religion.

Jesus warned that before He returns to the earth there will be killing occurring in the name of God. Jesus said that these who would kill “in the name of God" would think they are doing God a service (John 16:1-3). On the contrary, killers take God's name in vain and grossly misrepresent His heart toward humanity.

To answer the question then, the answer is a resounding NO. Religion is NOT the answer. In fact RELIGION IS THE PROBLEM.

The answer is to teach spirituality rather than religiosity and thereby reeducate humanity in regard to the realm and dimension of the Spirit. Spirituality is liberating. Religiosity is aggravating. Religion divides. Spirituality is experiential, celebratory and unifies. Religion is dogmatic and divisive. Spirituality is divine and transcends all barriers facing mankind.
