Defining Religion

Religion can be a sensitive topic for a lot of people. We all have our own definitions of what we see religion to be or what we think it should entail. As reviewed in the video “What is Religion” by ReligionForBreakfast on YouTube, religion is a subjective term. What makes us differentiate between definitions and decide what we think is the truth? I have gone to church my entire life with my family and it seems like finding the right fit in a church has been a harder task than finding a house we all can agree to live in. Every church has their own way of preaching and administering the word and a lot of the churches we have gone to have made me feel uncomfortable and like they are pursuing religion in the wrong way. On the outside, I think churches and religion can all have the same function, but the definitions we give to them evoke different connotations to their meaning.
