Do you really need a bible or religion to believe in God?

Anonymous
I've noticed that a couple folks in my area are turning away from bibles and religion. It makes sense. Wouldn't God be satisfied that you simply believe in him/her/it and are a decent person?

Someone can go to church every single Sunday (or read his/her bible every day) and still be a lying hypocrite that does bad to others. That person doesn't have God in his/her heart at that moment, no matter what they're claiming. A priest can still be preaching while molesting children behind closed doors.
