...low calm tone and the hymns to me were kind of monotone. I’m use to more upbeat singing with the piano, keyboards, saxophones and strong soulful voices that sing several songs before the preacher takes to the alter. The service at the Catholic Church was very quiet almost solemn in a way. I feel that the overall service was direct more so on a level of teaching for understanding but still keeping within the relm of how things were are worded in the bible. The days service came from Matthew, “Whatsoever you do to the least one, you do unto me.” (Mt. 25:40). For some strange reason anytime I attend church it always seems like the preacher is talking to me. Like he knows what I’m going through and caters to what I need to hear. This topic was fitting for what I feeling and I was especially interested in hearing what he had to say. What I did also find most interesting was that there was a lot of pauses and prayers that was done. I was however, somewhat familiar with the kneeling and praying (as my uncles wife is Catholic and when they got married it was a Catholic service). I was a bit unsure of what to actually do. All in all nothing really struck me as odd or different outside of just being a normal religious service. Of course just about anything would be different coming from a background of Pentecost and Baptist. Overall I would say that I got a lot of service but probably not as much as I could have gotten if I had not be in such awe of how beautiful the......

...Gavin Holloway Intro to Religion Class 9:00am Topic Essay Religion today has created many questions amongst the many followers or non-followers that it has encountered since the beginning of time. To most people religion offers salvation, enlightenment, and a place in heaven. Religion identifies the way of life. It entitles one a complete guide book of life. Religion underlines the importance of being moral and upright .It condemns those who don’t do right by the rules of its religion. The ones who practice a religion strive to be perfect. Some religions have many gods and some believe in the one God. All religions attempt to make human beings better to the highest level to live a good life. It has been said that idea of death led to the development of religion. Many understand it difficult to orchestrate what need would be for religion in a world where death and sickness did not plague the people. All religions attempt to give answers to basic life morality questions. In the ancient past, these inquiries were answered in positions of mythology. However, nowadays much of literature ideals tied to them and modern science try to examine them thoroughly. The debate that is under review now is whether it is easier to prove the existence of theistic notion of Holy than to prove a non-theistic notion of Holy. Non-theistic religion is a term that covers a range of non-religious and religious ideals characterized by the nonappearance of theism or any beliefs in a......

...  Religion: Can one be Moral and not believe in God Tomeka Lynch PHI208 Jeffrey Porter 7/7/13                     Abstract “A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hopes of reward after death ” (Albert Einstein) Religion is about beliefs and individual views that relate to what they believe is ethical/unethical, none of those state you are less moral if you are not religious, however I can understand how confusing this could be based on the teachings of the bible and some of the plagues and deaths that was brought about by Jesus/God. I personally like the quote from Einstein. From the time that man could think, the question has been asked “where do we come from”, “how did we get here”, and “is there a God”? The question of the existence of God has been a long time debate between believers and non-believers. There are only two logical answers to the question of Gods’ existence, either God does exist or God does not exist. This paper will explore the arguments for and against the existence of God as well as explain some of the arguments that are used to come to these conclusions. Theodicy arose from the attempts to answer the question of the existence of God. St. Anselm formed the first ontological argument and believed that -Ontological arguments are......

...days of a lunar calendar are different, with a twelve month lunar calendar having three hundred and fifty four days. The Holiday falls on a different day every year due to the Jewish religion following a lunar calendar instead of the solar calendar. Religious Practices Associated With The Day The animal sacrifices are now recited through prayer and have not been practiced in 2,000 years, ever since the destruction of the second temple. Practices or traditions followed today include strict fasting (no eating or drinking), no wearing of leather shoes, no bathing or washing, no anointing oneself with perfume or lotions, and no marital relations. For Yom Kippur it is customary to wear white, which stands for purity and symbolizes the promise to wash away all sins. It is a complete 25 hour observance beginning at dusk the evening before and ending at nightfall the day of Yom Kippur. Evening services that start Yom Kippur are better known as Kol Nidne, named for the prayer that starts the service. A special prayer book is used for Yom Kippur; the book is named the Machzor. Most people attend synagogue most of the day with a short break in the afternoon, it is common to not go to work or school for Yom Kippur. All services end with the blowing of the Tekiah Gedolah, a ram like horn. In conclusion the topics covered have been historical origins of Yom Kippur, the time of year it is celebrated, and the religious practices associated with Yom Kippur. In the beginning a high priest,......

...Religion is the cause of many good and bad things around the world. Many would say that religion separates and divides all humans and causes conflict. Our society today has developed far beyond what we had expected. Human civilization has evolved intellectually and also technologically. Humans have come so far on their own and they are only going to get farther. Humans have proven that they do not need much to advance but knowledge. Religion is still needed in our society, not for our civilization to advance but for humanity to maintain aspects of its roots. Religion differentiates all of the unique cultures we have around the world, teaches and emphasizes the role of morals and gives people hope and faith in themselves and the world. There are one hundred and ninety-six countries in the world as of today. We are all the same people but what separates us is our cultures and traditions. Every ethnic group of people in this world have unique traditions, languages, political and social ideologies, cultures and lifestyles. According to Professor Billikopf who teaches at the University of California in his article he says that knowing each other’s cultural differences brings the sense of unity and understanding to the human race. If all humans were the same there would be nothing to understand about our species and our similarities would make our race unbalanced. Unbalanced in the sense that humans would not be as significant as they are today. People would feel as if they......

...and Bill Clinton, the topic of family values became one of the most controversial issues of the campaign. Vice President Dan Quayle emphasized this issue the most, with his frequent tirades on the subject including his criticism of the television character Murphy Brown. Once this issue reached the spotlight, the more conservative members of the Republican party religious right" delivered speeches calling for the nation to return to instilling "traditional values" in our children. One of the reforms that they called for was the legalization of a daily prayer in our public school system. They claimed that this would be a key first step in reinstituting the essential family values in our children. They called for a change in our laws which have forbidden prayer in schools. These laws have been upheld because courts have asserted that they violate the separation of church and state that is assured in our Constitution. Following this call for a new religious crusade many articles and editorials appeared calling for new legislation which would allow prayer in public schools. Polls were released which indicated that a large percentage of Americans favored new legislation on this subject, and more than one half of those surveyed claimed that they would be more likely to vote for a candidate in a national election who supported prayer in public schools. One has to question the intensity of this support because Bill Clinton (not a supporter of bringing religion into public schools)......

...The Influence of Religion on Society’s Daily Life By Aris Totle FOUN 1001: English Society, as it is known, is built on the basis of religious teachings. Religion has a huge impact on daily life. Almost every aspect of everyday life has been influenced by religion. Religion can be described as a system of shared beliefs. Christianity, being the most widely practiced religion in the world, especially in western territories such as the United States of America, Europe, and the Caribbean; has also been the most influential. Although many persons may not be practicing the Christian religion, their values and daily practices are still mandated by Christian beliefs. The biggest influence that Christianity has on everyday life probably is that the social norms that exist in society today are almost all based on the teachings of this religion. Social norms refer to rules that govern socially acceptable behaviour. Societal norms and practices in western civilizations are largely dictated by Christian beliefs. Religion greatly impacts the morality of individuals within these societies. Collectively as a society, and individually, persons attempt to live their lives in accordance with codes of morality and ethicality. Morals refer to an individual’s own principles regarding right and wrong. Ethics also relates to right and wrong conduct. There is a strong connection between religion and morality and ethics. Although these are distinct concepts, and morality can exist without......

...Jesus Christ. In order to remain in Christ, the people had to reject the culture of that day which included the evils of the flesh. Because of the sin, all cultures, no matter where you were from, believed in and rejected, would face death of the body. Paul’s gospel extended a hand to all people in Romans 5:21, stating ". . . So that as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." The major purpose for the Life, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. No longer are we in need of laws set by man, but that the individual is pressed by the Holy Spirit to follow the laws set in order upon an individual’s heart (NIV, Romans 2:15) Conclusion In closing, all of the topics discussed affect the way we see people in our culture and world. If we profess to be a Christian, saved by God’s grace and mercy plus have a relationship with Jesus Christ, then our view of the world, through God’ eyes, should be one of humility. I’m reminded that we all have sinned (and will sin). We all were created in the image of God. We all have a chance for eternal life. In remembering these truths, nothing we can do as individuals puts us above any other person. Our salvation had nothing to do with our works, but everything to do with the working of our Great God!

...What is Religion Carina Zamora REL/133 July 22, 2015 Charles Colclasure What is Religion What is religion? Before reading the first two chapters of my text book I thought religion were my beliefs in the spiritual world. In reality I have never really had a belief in a religion, this could possibly be due to lack of education in the topic or the various religions. I grew up being Catholic. My parents, grandparents, and family members are Catholics. I on the other hand never really understood much of what was being said in mass. Prayer was more of memorization not understanding, same with the church choir I knew some songs because I had memorized the songs, not understood the meaning of the lyrics or exactly who the Catholics were parsing. There was a few things I would not understand or agree with, I never understood the concept of praying to statues or best known as saints. I felt that if Jesus Christ or God was so powerful and what not we should have only been praying to him as well as devoting our faith to him. I never exactly questioned my parents because I did not want to upset them. Traditions in the Catholic religion or ceremonies perhaps are baptisms, first communion, some form of presentation when the child turns three years of age, confessions, weddings, and mass services for the deceased that I know of, I am sure there are more traditions I am unaware of or have probably forgot with time. Every Sunday during mass services Catholics receive what......

...towards understanding the modern dilemma of hostility between the religions of Christianity and Islam. Both religions have many followers that openly and subtly attack the opposing religion today. The fact that both religions preach strong beliefs and devout lifestyles that contradict each other creates an environment for struggle. Additionally, the expression “two wrongs don’t make a right” helps encapsulate the root of the problems that continue to persist between the two religions. This prolonged hatred is the result from centuries of conflict between religious descendants. In the modern world, social media is increasingly influencing both Christianity and the Islam faith through raising awareness and presenting biased opinions. As Christianity and the Islamic state globally become more aware of each other, the differences in each religion have become an expansion of animosity against the opposing faith.    A popular view from both faiths of Islam and Christianity involve a defensive and aggressive stance towards the opposing religion. Islamic followers in many aspects of belief disagree with and reject Christian views. This is created by feedback loop that has influenced many Muslims on different levels towards having a hateful mindset. Largely due to media created opinions, Islamic followers are lead to believe the worst about Christianity. This is only compounded by a conflictual history between the two religions and many people’s unwillingness to forgive. Not unlike......

...means society is less religious. Some sociologists think this a fact but others are not convinced. Maybe it’s just religion is changing and people are finding different ways to be religious. Figures for the number of people attending church show there has been a big decline over the years. In Victorian times almost everyone went to church as it was expected of you. But the 20th century saw a big decline. Nowadays more people go to football matches on a Sunday than attend church. Also shopping is a major attraction and people can also spend their time doing things with the whole family such as going to AltonTowers. The people who disagree with secularisation argue that people are religious in different ways today. Surveys show a lot of people still believe in God. It might be that they are too busy to go to church but they are still religious. They can watch programmes on TV like Songs of Praise so they are still being religious. Many old people are not fit enough to attend church every week but they are still very religious. One sociologist who supports secularisation is Wilson. He says religion has lost its influence and instead of leading people it is now forced to follow them. Martin disagrees with Wilson. He says religion can take many forms and that the majority of people still feel the need for something spiritual so religion will never go away. Candidate B Secular means non-religious.

...Topic 1: What career would you like to choose after leaving school Model answer: Today, it is not easy to choose a career. Hundreds of students pass various examinations every year and compete with one another for positions in the various professions which are not so many as there are applicants. I would, however, like to choose teaching as my career. Teaching is an interesting career for several reasons. As a teacher I can learn many things, especially if I teach to an udder-secondary school. If I teach History or English, for example, I have to read many books to make my teaching lessons more interesting to my pupils. Thus, I can acquire more knowledge of the subjects that I teach than what I can learn from the class text books. It is indeed a fact that a teacher learns a lot from the class text books; but that is hardly enough to make the teacher's lessons interesting to pupils. A good teacher must therefore read many other books. Again, as a teacher, I have to speak well so that my pupils will be able to understand my instructions well. In this way I can improve my powers of expression. Even my pronunciation of words will improve to great extent. Further, as a teacher, I shall have enough leisure to read and prepare for various examinations. It is possible today to sit for many important examinations by studying entirely at home. Thus, I can acquire important qualifications. Finally, as a teacher I will be respected as an educated person. People will......

...Religion has been a really hot topic ever since it was established and it has been the cause of devastating battles in the entire world. Two of the most remarkable effects that organized religion has caused in society today has to do with the establishment of the laws and rules that society is govern. The other significant effect of organized religion has to be the influence in behaviors and traditions. Since the early stages of humanity religion has played a very important role in the creation of rules and guidelines for society. Religion provided the standards in which kings and rulers of the land based their laws over their subjects and maintain power for a very long time. These rules had evolved into the current laws that government had implemented into their judicial system. The example that illustrate this evolution is how the roman catholic religion influenced European and the American governments. Europeans specially the Spaniards based their laws deeply on their religion and emphasize all their efforts into converting anyone with a different ideology into christianity. This was evident during the conquer of the American continent when the native americas were rip off their believes because they were different and had to be subdued. Even after the independence from Europe laws were based on believes and gradually changed into todays rules and regulations for society. Depending of the geographical location and the respective religion of the area many societies......
