Hi Stile,

Is there something that is worth obtaining through God that can only be obtained through religion (or God) that I don't have already?

Are you simply relying on the Abrahamic religions for this? Have you taken a look at Eastern Philosophy (Buddhism, Janism, etc.)...?

I never ghad any results from it myself, but many have. Many acheive certain levels of spirituality that is claimed to be euphoric, or something like that.

Again, I didn't, but as one should expect from any faith-based belief, it's a lot to do with inner acceptance rather than objective results.

Are you looking for salvation, an aftelife, or something like that?
