BEING RELIGIOUS AND GOD ORIENTED IS NOT THE QUALIFICATION FOR SELF REALIZATION.
SELF REALIZATION IS POSSIBLE ONLY WHEN THE SEEKER INQUIRES ANALYZE AND REASONS INTO THE NATURE OF THE MIND ON THE TRUE BASE. RELIGION,GOD GLORIFICATION,YOGA ARE HINDRANCE IN PURSUIT OF TRUTH BECAUSE THEY ARE BASED ON THE FALSE IDENTITY THAT IS EGO. THOSE WHO THINK RELIGION,GOD,SCRIPTURES AND YOGA AS FINAL AND ULTIMATE WITHOUT VERIFYING THE VALIDITY OF THEIR BELIEF ARE NOT FIT FOR TRUTH REALIZATION.

Who is verfying the validity?

It is only the mind that can do this job of verifying validity and as we perfectly know the mind leads to no spiritual ends...

I feel that being god oriented (I don't like the term religious as there are too many definitions for that) is a powerful tool towards spiritual development (I don't like the term self realization either, it puts a notion of a target, an aim which is contradictory to spirituality).

god orientation comes from the heart, verifying and validating comes from the mind.
