First even your own belief system is classified as a religion. Second in regards to your comment, Christianity is a Religion that has prerequisites (Precepts) which are to make it a lifestyle. A lifestyle that is of Love. Love for G~d and Love for our fellow man. If we don't adhere to the prerequisites, the Precepts, and the other commandments; we are affecting the balance that was to keep everything the way G~d intended. We are destroying ourselves, those around us, and the very Creation that G~d has set in motion.

If one does not like to live a life without sin, taking part of the Gospel, the Body of Christ, the Temple of G~d, His Kingdom. A life that shows that we worship and love G~d. A life that does not cause death then maybe at this time G~d is not for them. Because whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
But don't give up if we are truly seeking He will change us. He is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But perish we will unless we repent

Lord we believe, help our unbelief. For you have given us all things that pertain to life and godliness.
