Abstract: 

This article is an attempt to prove that from the viewpoint of Kant, the true religion is the ethics based on pure practical reason. Considering origin and content, this religion differs from divine religion; the ontological role of God also is different. Moral law which is emanated from practical reason determinates the will. According to the pure practical reason, the supreme good is object of moral law; and the condition for its realization is that it must presupposed the existence of Gog who has suitable attributes. In Kant’s view, religion consists in confirming all moral duties as divine commands of wise and free will but not as dogmatic will of Supreme Being.
