According to the American Heritage Dictionary, religion is: 1) the life or condition of a person in a religious order, 2) a set of beliefs, values, and practices based on certain teachings, and 3) a cause, principle or activity pursued with zeal or conscientious devotion. I think of religion as a practice of faith.
People inherently struggle with thoughts of faith and its implications. I know I have struggled with my faith, and I've read books that detail this certainty in others as well. So I am posting responses to some of my thoughts/discussions with others.
