To get a definition for something in the bible, you look up the first occurrence. Then you compare that to all other occurrences to see if the meaning changes. Religion appears four times in the bible. There is a fifth occurrence, but it’s not the same Greek word.
Acts 26:5 Which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify, that after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.
Galatians 1:13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:
Galatians 1:14 And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.
James 1:26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.
The bible defines religion as something made up by men telling each other what to do. That is what governments do. When the Israelites came into the promised land, God commanded them not to appoint a king, so they would not be like the nations. After about 250 years the people demanded a king, to be like the nations. And like the nations, they were soon conquered. God does not like religion.
