A sizable majority of the country’s faithful no longer hew closely to orthodox teachings, and look more to themselves than to churches or denominations to define their religious convictions, according to two recent surveys. More than half of all Christians also believe that some non-Christians can get into heaven.

So my question is: what’s the point of being religious?  I mean, if it’s something you can define yourself aren’t you then basically saying that it only exists within yourself?  So religion is not external and therefor it doesn’t really matter what you believe so it also doesn’t really matter if god exists or not.

Be an atheist and save yourself the trouble.
