Religious education should not strengthen the projection but its important role is to help in overcoming the projection in order to shape more mature forms of religiosity. In this process, it is important to identify the elements of immature religiosity such as motivation based on fears, a threatening image of God, a disability to discriminate relevant elements from the irrelevant ones in individual religiosity. In the work on changing the elements in question, it is essential to pay attention to the difference between the parent and God, especially as far as the requirements and punishments are concerned; and to the appropriate identification of the aim of individual religiosity and the means to achieve the objective. This article is the result of 27 years of the author’s work, involving assistance to individuals in shaping more mature forms of their religiosity.
