Question Description

pick only one !!! of the questions or topics.

  1. What is the relationship between the world’s religions? Are they all equally true? Are they all false? Do they all have some truths in them, but not others? Is one religion more true to you than the others are? If so, why.
  2. Pick one Religious Figure: Jesus, Buddha, Muhammad, or Confucius. What does the life of this person teach us about what it means to be religious? Have the religious traditions around this person been faithful to his message?
  3. Western Religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) think of God as a Person. This means that they think God as an intellect, a will, and maybe even feelings. Eastern Religions (such as Taoism or the more philosophical branches of Hinduism) think of the divine as something far less person-like. For them the divine is basically the all-inclusive ground of all being, reality at it’s ultimate level, of which all things are but finite manifestations. Do you prefer one of these conceptions of the divine to the others? If so, Why?
  4. Most of the world’s religions have, at one time or another, assigned women to a subordinate place. Women have not played a major role in leadership and have not been central to these religious traditions. Recently many of the world religions have attempted to change this. What needs to be done to make religion fully inclusive of and empowering for women? Can religion be changed to fully include women? Why or why not?
  5. Take a personal field trip to a place of worship. Make sure that that the place you visit is not your particular religion. Describe the experience? What did the place of worship look like? What rituals did they use? How did you feel? In what ways was this new or different from your own religious tradition?

Relationship between the World’s Major Religions
Introduction
People around the world have a different set of beliefs, thoughts, cultures, customs,
philosophies, and styles of living. Essentially, these aspects of living emanate from an individual
perspective or a collective ideology of a group of people. Ideally, the majority of people globally
attach themselves to a particular belief system that further matches them to a specific religion. In
the modern world, five major world religions have different belief systems. The emergence of
religion followed a particular pattern when people of old wanted to seek a revelation to some
events that were beyond their levels of understanding. Herbert Spencer once argued that the
origin of religion lies on two facts; experiences in dreaming and fear (Global Christian Center,
n.d.). In light of this, Herbert Spencer argued that people believed that there were supernatural
spirits that controlled their dreams. As a result, this acknowledgment led to the emergence of
religion. That said, the main aim of this paper is to discuss the relationship between the world’s
religions and discuss whether all are true or some truth, false, and whether there is any religion
which is truer than the others.
Analysis
