I would argue that religion can give people a new found purpose in life. An example would be someone who had been retrenched, tries and tries to find work but no one's interested, and despite the best efforts of family and friends they fall into depression. Or someone who has been in hospital for a long time, same thing. Religion can be used to give them the strength to move on.
