There seems to be an unwritten law in this world that for every original and genuine thing, man has to try and make a copy of it. Imitation anything never tastes, looks, or works nearly as well as the real thing. Imitation leather is not as good as real leather. Imitation crab-meat does not taste like real crab-meat. Incredible as it is, man has even carried this same preoccupation with imitations, into the realm of the spiritual. There is a genuine relationship with God and then there is relationship with man-made religion, and man has settled for relationship with religion, the counterfeit of relationship with God.
