Religious education can be an instrument to shape and unify the nation within society. Religious education must constantly be improved to adjust to the changing times; making people aware of science and technology, creative, innovative, and possessing high solidarity; sensitive to the context of national education, the struggles of the nation and answering the needs of believers. Religious education in schools must result in transformation in knowledge (cognitive) and in faith (spiritual) which will give rise to transformation of attitude (affective). This is because one of the goals of religious learning in schools is to enable students to live in harmony with people around who are of various religions and ethnicities. If this is not maximally done, it will cause unexpected problems. One of the issues that arise is the rise of a different understanding of the nature of human beings. Diversity certainly influences a people’s perspective on life with each other in the environment in which they lives. When fellow human beings become individuals who love unity without seeing differences amid diversity, we will have realized the true Indonesian citizens with "Bhineka Tungga Ika". Because living together and sharing with others has been the lifestyle of the Indonesian people.
