Culture is complex and diverse. Religious culture is the core of the structure of human culture. People of different religious and cultural backgrounds often have different behavioral orientations and action logics in the era of economic globalization. It will undoubtedly increase the cultural understanding and communication problems of global governance. This paper attempts to explore the relationship between religious culture and global governance in the core of human culture from the perspective of religious culture, especially the exchange of Chinese religions and other religions. The authors hold when religious beliefs deep in people’s minds are intertwined with actual political and economic interests, the political and economic interest appeals of nations are usually manifested in the form of contradictions or conflicts between different religions. The solution is to firmly establish different cultural concepts, promote religious dialogue and religious reconciliation through multicultural coexistence, and promote good governance and good governance in global public affairs in mutual respect and cultural consultation.
