Religion: Only a semblance of faith and an absence of love?

There are 2 comments on the Washington Times story from Dec 11, 2011, titled Religion: Only a semblance of faith and an absence of love?. In it, Washington Times reports that:

Do you know what is better than charity and fasting and prayer? It is keeping peace and good relations between people, as quarrels and bad feelings destroy mankind." Muslim & Bukhari Bliss is not for sale, cannot be earned, "Works" have no "merit," though of course faith, inevitably, even unconsciously, flows out into works of love at once.

Religion builds faith in those who may not have faith. Faith is the basis of self confidence which is needed to have faith in God.

From self confidence, we move to self satisfaction to self awareness and finally self realization, with permanent happiness as God realization.

We contemplate that every particle, from a speck of granite that took 8.4 million years to evolve with the same DNA as man, resulted in the divine state of man, as microcosm in macrocosm and totally the same sat-chit-ananda or being- awareness-bliss which Hindus also call God.

It is this contemplation that leads man into the full understanding that he also is God, and always evolving into the full awareness that finally brings him into oneness with the Creator or universal Consciousness.
