A theistic religion is one that believes in one or more Gods. A monotheistic religion, like Christianity or Islam, believes in one God. A polytheistic religion, like Hinduism, believes in many Gods. A theist describes a person who believes in a God or many Gods. The opposite would be an atheist, who does not believe in God.
OpinionAdvantages of looking at human nature form a theistic point of view include that people and their motives can be compartmentalised, ready assumptions made and dogmatic solutions, such as prayer or forgiveness, offerred for personal problems. A disadvantage is that the theistic viewpoint can be wrong.
I believe the word you're looking for is "poly-theistic"
Each religious group defines itself internally, and there is significant difference between what the word "religion" means across faiths. In general, a religion is "a system of belief and/or practice which seeks to explain the cause, nature and/or purpose of the universe and/or human existence." By this definition, the existence of God is only one possible answer and many belief systems which fit the name are non-theistic. Note that this definition also contains several "and/or" statements as some religions are more or less comprehensive and some seek more or less to influence beliefs or practices.
There is no technical name for it. If you do not believe in any God, plural or otherwise, you are an Atheist, but if you have no belief either way I don't know of a term for you. -- Some people prefer to be called Agnostic, though it seems the term is more commonly associated with people who question the belief of various theistic denominations rather than those who choose to simply not subscribe to a religion.
A religion is a religion and a belief is a belief.
Someone who is "theistic" is a believer in the Creator God, regardless of which religion s/he identifies with.

Confucianism was not so much a religion as a philosophy which was fused to a religion. In terms of the gods of China it was a Poly-theistic philosophy. However, it's ideals could equally well be applied to a monotheistic population, or an athesistic population as China is, largely, today.
Not all religions are "theistic".A religion is not a theism.Theism, though, just about always causes the formation of a religion.It might help to look up "theism", which is a belief...and compare it to "religion," which is an organized system...They're not mutually exclusive terms.There are polytheistic religions too.

By suggesting that you don't judge people automatically based on their theistic preference.

Yes.... It is. Hinduisum is decidedly theistic; the difficultly lies in determining whether it is a Polytheistic, Pantheistic, or perhaps even Monotheistic Religion.
Theists belive in some sort of supernatural being or god. Atheists do not. As a consequence atheists must rely on their own judgement to determine a path between self-interest and altruistic behaviour. Theist are unable to make this judgement and rely on instructions provided by a religion which claimes to have all of the answers.
