    Religion is an element of culture. Culture is a collection of common belief and behavior. It includes not only religion but rights of maturity, law, morality, costume, foods, dance, housing, labor, and all elements of a society.

    Religion has to do with spirituality, an afterlife, a higher power. culture has to do with neighborhoods, cities, holidays and rituals, could be religious or nationalistic, etiquette and social norms.

    I'm a Baha'i, a member of the Baha'i Faith. We believe there is only one God, that sent Buddha, Jesus, Moses, etc to humanity, now Baha’u’llah has come.

    Typically religion is a PART of culture (not always).

    And how big a part of a particular culture religion plays varies widely from culture to culture.

    More simply stated: religion is one aspect of most (not all) cultures.
