This isn't to stir debate with you, just to provide you one point of view, given that you expressed interest in the phenomenon.

The difference for me is that I believe God is found within and that each of us must discover that for ourselves. My problem with organized religion is that it almost always includes some essential teaching which renders the individual impotent in this regard.

Put another way, the failures of the Church do nothing to bring me closer to God, whereas my own failures can, and should, lead to growth.
