There are two ways of thinking about the word ‘religion’:
First, there are those who say it is a term that should only be applied to people who follow a particular set of rules (like the Islamic or Christian religion) which has a fixed doctrine, and any other groups should be seen only as followers of that religion.
Now, there are many other groups that say that their religion is also the religion of their time (such as the Sikh religion), yet to be a member of such group is nothing more than to believe in their beliefs. I myself do not subscribe to any of this. I do not accept the existence of any fixed doctrine for humans, or the existence of an God, and so there is no fixed doctrine of the meaning of the word ‘Religion’ to me. In the modern world there is much confusion over the nature of such “religious” groups, what constitutes religion, why do some religions believe in the meaning of the word ‘religion’, and so on, but that is an essay which cannot do justice to the subject, thus I will have to refer you to this article for a full explanation of the topic.  However, many religions, such as Christian and Islamic or Buddhist can claim religious characteristics without being religions in the modern sense.
Second, there are those who claim that all groups which claim a religion should also claim a god. In these cases, the god is a separate ‘god’, and you do not even need to be a follower of the religion to be a follower of this god. In fact, many religions accept this god or one or more gods as being real, and no doubt the followers of such god or gods do believe the same, or at least they seem to. However, this second explanation is wrong. In my opinion, the meaning of the word ‘religion’ in the modern day is an issue entirely different than that with which these other religions are concerned.
The essence of the word ‘religion’ is ‘belief’, and the essence of the word ‘God’ is ‘to give life’ and in Christianity many god concepts are quite vague (‘Father’, ‘Son’, ‘Holy Spirit’, ‘Earth’, ‘Holy Day’, ‘Death’, etc.) so many people call these god concepts ‘God’ and hence these ideas (such as ‘God’ and ‘Theism’), ‘belief’ and ‘belief in the existence of a god’, are at odds with each other, or rather it is
