Separating "religion" from Christ is another thing hyper-spiritualists or mystics will do.

There's false religion (Judges 3:7) and then there's a "pure religion' (James 1:27) Christians should adhere to. Religion isn't bad in and of itself. It's just a framework for worship.

It's fine to be religious just as long as you're following Christ's leading.

The reason Satan wants to make religion a scapegoat and apply the label to every form and structure of worship is to make everything about ambiguity or "spirit" as to cleverly introduce control mechanisms into worship. That way you can define things however you'd like. When mystics talk about "spirit", they're not referring to the Holy Spirit but the spirit of the world.
