To bend or not to

To bend or not to bend....
I thought this morning that if religion serves to give orientation to lives, then what happens when the orientation needs to change? Does religion need to bend with me, or do I need to bend religion? Is that why there are so many different sects and denominations, from people bending it? It seems that way. I wonder if it is possible to change the orientation without changing the religion. I think that there is another way of looking at it, outside of bending and not bending.
