Why is #Belief a problem in the study of religion?

Downsizing religion to justify the definition of belief is problematic because it’s way more complicated than that. Many external and internal factories play into effect like race, gender, geographic location, and many more that can skew people’s beliefs one way opposed to another. The religion for breakfast video talked about how 37% of Jews question if God is real. The video shows that cultural acceptance for some peoples’ choice of faith can be persuaded, but their beliefs say another thing. You can also look at the many branches of Christianity and Judaism. Even though they may claim the same religion but have different ways of worship. Religion is more than beliefs; it’s also how you practice it, where you go to worship, and many other rituals you follow.
