The term religion has different definitions as every person owns different beliefs. Religion can be defined as a group of people who have shared beliefs and who feel their life has a goal and meaning.
These creeds are about the world and people who live in it and are often related to supernatural beings such as God or divinities.
As well as this, each religion has different views, rituals and moral codes, which are a set of beliefs on how humans should act.
The largest religions in the world are Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Sikhism, Judaism and Jainism.
However, there are also people who do not believe in any gods who are known as atheists, and people who are not sure of whether to believe or not in a divinity. These are known as agnostics.
Most religions believe in a deity or God who is the creator of everything. Some of them believe in just one goddess, others, instead, in many deities which have different roles in nature. As well as this, some faiths believe in other types of spirits such as angels, devils or other divinities which can be either good or bad.
Another main belief among religions is that humans have a soul which also lives after their bodies have died.
Finally, religions focus on morals which are the ways humans behave toward other individuals. Many religions create rules about human morals which describe how individuals should act with other people. These rules are different from faith to faith.
