The authors criticize our article for using the terms "religion" and "spirituality" interchangeably. However, we did not use the concept "religion" in the article. Rather, the concept "religious behavior," which is operationally defined in the literature (1), denotes cognitive and emotional behavior associated with (the individual’s relationship to their) religious beliefs. The term "spirituality" has been used in a wider context, including internal, subjective experiences, and has not been consistently defined by operational criteria. It is worth noting that the concept of spirituality is not necessarily linked to organized religion.
