The word religion is also referred to as a "faith" or "belief system". Religion is an organized set of moral and ethical beliefs and laws, established by an institution. The practices of religions and related organizations may include art, community activities, charitable events, concerts, feast days, dances, festivals, funerals, initiations, marriages, meditation, membership activities and parties, music, sacrifices, studies, dances, among other activities. Some religious organizations appear more like a social club than a faith.
Some organizations refer to themselves as a "religion" to conceal a more sinister agenda, such as participating in the occult, divination, witchcraft, conjuring up spirits and related practices.
So let's try to untangle some of the truth, out of a myriad of religions, faiths, cults and belief systems full of half-truths if not wholesale deception, that have infiltrated the mind and soul of humanity since the very dawn of this age.
