All About Religion Or Rather A Relationship With God?

The definition of religion is the belief in and worship of God or gods. A system of practices, beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.
