Religious Traditions

Christianity is believes in a divine being while other religions may not believe in one supreme being but many supreme beings, and yet another does not believe in a divine source at all. Each religion has their traditions from a special day of worship to a certain way to conduct pray. The most popular day of worship in the Sunday for most Christians, while others it is Saturday. Some religions do not partake in the Christmas tradition to celebrate the birth of Jesus while other do celebrate on a spiritual level, nonetheless there are those that just celebrate it for the holiday itself without belief of the spiritual side. Define the meaning of “divine” is to have a belief in a supreme being. But this is just one of many definitions. For example using the word divine as an adjective can describe the subject as being godlike i.e “a divine person” or as a noun one would be referring to a clergyman, or God. Divine can also be used as a verb to perceive prophesy. Divine is perceived differently in each religion.
