Not loving God

Christianity is not a set of beliefs. That is not to say you can believe anything and still be a Christian. But the beliefs that a christian holds are a result of what it means to be a christian, not the cause or source of it. It's not a set of rules that you have to follow, or a list of things that you must do. Again, the actions spring out of a life that is Christian, rather than being the definiton of it. And don't get mad at me, but Christianity is not 'loving God', as many people pursue the euphoria of holy experiences, where they will have ardent devotion to God, (I think summer camp has the tendency to push people toward this view). The love that someone feels toward God is an expression of true religion. What is Christianity then?
