WHAT IS RELIGION?
There are square measurements of many religions across the planet. A belief is characterized as a belief or system of worship. A religious person, like a god or gods, believes in a controlling power. Beliefs differ according to the following religion. The planet has about 4,300 religions. This is an autonomous, non-religiously affiliated organization that tracks the number and size of world religions, according to Adherents.
Side by side, adherents divide religions into sects, denominations, congregations, religious bodies, religious groups, races, communities, and movements. Around 75% of the world’s population practices one of the five most common religions in the world:
The two most frequent religions in the world are Christianity and Islam. These two combined sects constitute more than half of the religious affiliation of the world population. If all non-religious people established a single religion, it would be the third-largest in the world.

Christianity (2.1 billion),
Non-religious (secular / agnostic / atheist) (1,100 million),
Hinduism (900 million),
Chinese ancient faith (394 million),
Buddhism 376 million primary Indians (300 million),

Sikhism (23 million) Juche (19 million),
Spiritism (15 million).
All Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist and Jewish religions have differences in the interpretation, perspective or practice of the faith that are or are similar to the differences within Christianity between Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox, and others.
Trends in adherence to the world’s major religions are probably associated with different rates of population change in different regions of the world.
Interestingly, many people have tried to evaluate any “common point” that may exist among the world’s major religions, not so much in terms of their founding prophetic figures or their venerated sacred books. But in terms of the identifiable community of their respective teachings. Spiritual Some truly extraordinary pearls of wisdom are a brief selection of “Central spiritual perceptions.”
If you believe that religion belongs to the past and we are living in a new era of reason, you should verify the facts. 84% of the world’s population identifies with a religious group. The members of this group are generally younger and produce more children than those without religious affiliation. So the world is becoming more religious and not less secular, although there are large regional differences.
For example, religious beliefs and practices have enormous consequences. Then, numerous wars and conflicts throughout history to the present have had an open or undercover spiritual element. We have seen Islamic extremists fighting a war in the Middle East in recent years. A power struggle throughout the region between Sunni and Shia, the persecution of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. The violent clashes between Christians and Muslims in the Central African Republic, to name just a few. Women are subjected, persecuted by LGBT people and, in the name of religion, the “blasphemers” are tortured and killed.
Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the world, more than twice as fast as the world population in general. The world population is expected to grow by 32 million between 2015 and 2060. But the Muslim population is expected to grow by 70 percent. And although Christians will also outperform the general population during that time.
With a projected increase of 34% due mainly to population growth in sub-Saharan Africa, in the middle of this century, Christianity is likely to lose its first place in religion. Islam world league table. Hindus will grow by 27 percent, and Jews will grow by 15 percent, mainly due to the high ultra-Orthodox birth rate. Non-religious will see a 3 percent increase.
IMPACT OF RELIGIONS
Of course, religious beliefs and practices have enormous consequences. First, innumerable wars and conflicts throughout history to the present have had an open or covert religious dimension. We have seen Islamic extremists fighting a war in the Middle East in recent years.
A power struggle throughout the region between Sunni and Shia, the persecution of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. The rebellion of Boko Haram in Nigeria, the violent clashes in the Central African Republic between Christians and Muslims, to name a few. Similarly, Indian RSS is killing Muslims in India.
But this is not just bad news. Millions of people of faith around the world participate in social action programs to help the poor and marginalized. Look at the participation of churches, mosques, and synagogues in food banks and programs to help refugees, the US sanctuary church campaign. UU.
