Where is God?
If He is in your heart you’ll see him everywhere in Church, in Temple, in Caba. And philosophy tells you how to reach to this stage. And along the path, sacred places help us in developing feeling of divinity. It just a matter of understanding which is useful where!
If you look at Christ statue without thinking divinity associated with it, it is just collection of mud for you.
If you look at Idol without thinking that there is GOD dwelling in it, that idol is just a piece of stone for you.
If you don’t understand what philosopher says, it is just a piece of paper, which can be used to clean shit.
Everything depends on your attitude.
