religion ~ (A) ~ way to show God that we love him.

religion ~ (B) ~ Rules and traditions about God and our behaviour. Religion is not always good. Many people trust their religion and so refuse to trust God. But religion cannot save us from the punishment for our evil deeds. And even our good deeds cannot save us. Only God can forgive us. So we need to invite him into our lives.
