  5. Conclusion

The word ?Religion? refers to a body of belief and value systems, practices, affiliations and moral values, unique to a particular group of people, which define their understanding of life, relations and humanity.

There are many world religions, but the common ones include Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Jainism, Shinto, and Confucianism. These are associated with unique symbols, such as the Bible and Koran among Christians and Muslims respectively, the church and Mosque (places of worship) for Christians and Muslims respectively, and so forth. Interestingly, almost all of the world's major religions seem to consent to the fact that there is a supreme being, whom the respective believers worship and offer prayers. They believe that the Supreme Being to be the giver of life and health. Perhaps, the reason why there are different religions is the fact that they differ in their teachings on the origin of life or universe, death and who the Supreme Being is (Carson and Koenig 35).
