Upon conception, we will always have a default religion. Normally Catholics, Protestants and Christians will have their base religion up and while this is deemed as the set religion for anyone upon birth, it remains that some shift to a new one at some point, particularly when they start to mature and enter the actual world.
Many change religion for the sake of improving themselves. Some practices are different while others find something fascinating in them. But in the end, they will find that religion barely has something to do with overall personality. It is just a tag that we all want to try out. Chances are if things don’t work out, you will be reverting to your actual religion or even find a new one.
But based on philosophical beliefs, religion is not something that one should change. Each group have their own set of beliefs and once christened to one religion, is it not close to Blasphemy if you use the Catholic way of beliefs? Some people don’t believe in it and could care less.
There are various gods we believe in. Practices may differ but worshipping is something that is the main essence of religions. With that said, each religion is said to be unique. But generally, religious philosophies normally adhere towards worshipping a god.
This is not to hit various religious groups. It is just something to highlight that shifting from one religion to another carries a lot of hang-ups. But in the end, we just follow a certain worshipping practice.
