This guy and I dated for a few weeks. It seemed like we were really into each other... then we realized we had some major value/religious differences so we cut it off. Now we're friends with benefits . Is this doomed to fail? I can't tell if he's going to fall for me or me for him. I'm starting to get the feeling he's going to fall for me and me not for him... I rationally understand we could never be together, but does he?

I think you answered your own question. YOU see this as a shorter term thing, while you fear he may become more attached. Your instincts are giving you pretty wise advice, which is to strongly consider whether what you two are doing is worth it in the long run.
FWBs are great, but it can also keep you from meeting someone with similar values and beliefs. Wouldn't it be better to have a more complete relationship with someone like that where you can also enjoy great sex?
I've been in your situation before, and it's easy to become addicted to the comfort level FWBs provide. The problem, in addition to what I said above, is usually there is one person wanting more than just being friends who have sex, while the other person is content with the status quo. It's just the longer this goes on, the harder it is to break it off with the other person if/when you meet someone you're seriously interested in pursuing a complete relationship with.0
