Thank you for clarifying the religion part. Religion wants to control, and questions undermine control.Jesus sets us free.It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of a king to search a matter out.I love riddles and puzzles and questions and am always seeking answers.Jesus said, "Learn from me."God said, "Ask me and I will tell you - great, unsearchable things you do not know."
Jesus is religion.I fail to see your reason for trying to distinguish between the two.
