Religion is a system creating a long lasting power that relates humanity to values and truths. It is important to note that most religions have sacred histories, traditions, symbols and narrative that make it relate to one’s faith (Joseph 77). Although some people may see religion as being private, it has been noted that it is public since it involves congregations during scriptures, holy places, priestly hierarchies and prayers.
These congregations make it possible for people to come together into groups from where they are able to relate better in faith. Religion can be divided into three major categories namely world religions, indigenous religions and new religious movements. To crown it all, whichever the religion one belongs to, it is of paramount importance to note that religion is critical in one’s life.
