To my understanding , The best religion is the one that gets you closest to God. It is the one that makes you a better person

A true follower of any religion is one who is living every minute with love, grace and gratitude with his generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion , who is a true torch bearer of humanity with few fanatics, lunatics and sadists , religion has mostly become an insult to human dignity ...With or without it, you'd have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion ...As Abraham Lincoln says ....When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion.

It is like Partha said, your personal equation with the Almighty. There are no brokers in between. It is your intimacy with Him, your trust and faith in Him and going about doing everything in a way that pleases Him. I don't think, God ever asked or expected anyone to do sacrifices. And let not what we need to do as our duties be seen as a sacrifice. Then even that we do would loose its sanctity. All of us have roles in our life and what we do is nothing more than carrying out that role. One can't leave everything and chase God and then say, I am doing this sacrifice to stay close to God and nothing else matters to me. God wouldn't be very pleased with such escapist tendencies. If He has send us here, w ...more

Religion never expects sacrifices.

It requires only devotion and sincerity in worship and kind heart.
