What is a Difference Between Truth and Religion?

Religion is something that someone believes, whether it is true or not.  
Truth
 is true, regardless of what someone believes.”  (Phil Michel) 

 Example:
An atheist may say that he does not believe in god and therefore does not have a religion.  But he does have a religion!  His religion and belief is that there is no God.   The truth is that an atheist's religion is called Atheism.  It is a Religion.  An Atheist has chosen to  '...believe in something whether it is true or not'.

God has given us our freedom to entertain beliefs contrary to fact.

“...truth is knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come;” (Doctrine and Covenants 93:24) 

The Savior taught the pure truth.

Prophets like Noah, Moses, Joshua, Elijah, were called to do specific tasks, to correct false teachings, to receive revelation and teach the truth.

There have always been false teaching or different religious ideas that the Prophets, Apostles and the Savior have tried to correct.

Moses:    "And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me."  (Exodus 17:4)


Joshua:    "... serve him... in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood,...."  (Joshua 24:14)


Elijah:   "... How long halt ye between two opinions?..., I, [even] I only, remain a prophet of the Lord...."  (1 Kings 18:21-22)

"... Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both."  (Acts 23:7-8)

The Pharisees believed that everything needed for salvation was given to Moses. They did not want to be corrected or receive any new revelation.

They continually tried to find fault with the Savior. "...whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him. "  (Luke 6:6-11)

The Apostles continued to teach the pure truth.


“One Lord, one faith, one baptism.”   (Ephesians 4:5)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 The prophets in the western hemisphere, received revelation from God and taught the pure truth. 

 The Prophet Jacob.
“…the Spirit speaketh [unto us] the truth and lieth not. Wherefore, it speaketh of things as they really are, and of things as they really will be; wherefore, these things are manifested unto us plainly, for the salvation of our souls… God also spake them unto prophets of old.”    (Jacob 4:13)  544-421 B.C.  Book of Mormon.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Joseph Smith received many revelations from God.  God has once again called prophets to help bring more truth, correct false teachings, and restore the pure Gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth.

If we want 'Religion' we can find it anywhere.
But if we want the pure gospel of Jesus Christ, as taught by the Savior Jesus Christ, it can only be found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
