I think a lot of people who thinks of themselves as religious, thinks of themselves as a person of God, but not all people of God think of themselves as religious

*Les Miserables, lol (and the book is so much better, though I am a HUGE fan of the musical)
I think there are those who parade religiosity who miss the heart of God and His will - like the Pharisees of Jesus' time who were more concerned about purity and so forth than compassion, holding the "laws" above their fellow man. I think there are also those who are scorned by traditional religion or religious elite, like Jesus or Valjean, who are more in tune with the character and will of God in the way they reflect His love for their fellow man. So if that's what you meant, yes, I do agree that there is a difference between being religious and being Godly.
