TOK: Religion

What are the difficulties in defining what a Religion is?

Over the course of history, numerous sects of belief and forms of worship have arisen; some have fallen into obscurity while others are practiced still. I personally define religion as an organised system of beliefs. However, religions are primarily reliant on faith as a way of knowing, but there are many different levels of faith for each believer. There may also be different types of faith (such as the types of love) which may contribute to a religious person’s beliefs in their religion(s). This challenges the definition of religion because religions are defined differently between individuals (based on their faith).
