Also, pagans cannot prove that there is a hereafter life; but Christians have the faith and the courage that there is an afterlife, much happier and fruitful for those who will enter Heaven and will be next to God. Finally, pagan cults were connected to a specific locality, as an illustration the Eleusinian mysteries were limited to a specific and irreplaceable site and required initiation. In contrast, Christianity knows no geographical boundaries and ties, and through baptism, one would experience a moral rebirth and would leave his past sinful life
Hindus claims that the caste system was divine in nature. On the other hand, Buddhism offered ordination openly to all people regardless of caste. In Buddhism, if any of the caste does deeds such as stealing, slandering, lying and practice wrong beliefs, they are considered to have done negative deeds and therefore are not worthy or deserving respect, whatever their caste. Buddhists also believe that anyone can achieve enlightenment, where Hindus believe one must be of the Brahmin caste in order to achieve enlightenment. Both Buddhism and Hinduism also varies on the concept of non-duality.
His argument is one that requires multiple glances and a decomposition to its base components. It components being that we exist, we think clear and distinct thoughts that we affirm to be true even though other thoughts must be doubted, there must be a greater force that is responsible for these clear and distinct thoughts, and this greater force is an infinite, perfect, all-powerful God. While Descartes built a strong case about the existence of God, it is not completely perfect. There are still more questions that can be asked about his reasoning and certain holes in Descartes’ prior and succeeding meditations that raise the question of “How concrete and rigid is Descartes’ reasoning throughout his
Etymologically speaking, the word 'Vishnu ' means 'one who pervades, one who has entered into everything. ' So he is the transcendent as well the immanent reality of the universe. He is the inner cause and power by which things exist. Family Vishnu was married to Lakshmi (the goddess of good
The topic that is hidden behind existence of God is belief of people. As long as people believe in something, there is a chance that it is real. It is a common fact that all of the cultures have their own gods and believe that there is no entity that can be greater than God, positioning their God as the most perfect entity. By accepting and sharing existence of their God – we assume that he exists. It gives us an idea that things that we are imagining are true and real to some extent.
Religious law To commence, the religious law is the major and most common disparity Christianity and Buddhism. In Christianity, the God is the one who created the entire world, everything he had said will undoubtedly be true, people should believe and follow what he had done without hesitation or judgement. According to (APA STYLE), what God revealed to us is that, ‘I am the Light of the World’, which in the other way means, ‘all things were made by the God, and without Him was not anything made that hath been made.’ Christian declare that believing and following the doctrine of god is the most essential rule of their region. Buddhism does not believe in god, it advocate its adherent to follow the Buddha’s teachings. Some people may misunderstand that following the teaching of the Buddha is similar or same as what Christian does, however Buddhism urge people to follow the Buddha’s teaching but not worshiping of obeying him.
The text shows that John Calvin believed in predestination and election. According to John Calvin predestination is a decree from God that is unchangeable that he made before the creation of the world that he would save some people freely which he called the elect which gave to them eternal life, and the others which he called the reprobate would not be given access to salvation they would have eternal death. His reasoning behind predestination is best described by him in a few different ways. For the most part he said that there was no basis for election outside of God he said that God gave election ” in himself” in that he based his beliefs of predestination on “nothing outside of himself”. John Calvin also believe that the main purpose of predestination is that God would be glorified in praise of the elect for his grace and mercy and in wonderful judgment of the reprobates.
If man was never tempted to turn away from God, nothing bad would ever happen. True, life would be extremely different and marvelous, but how would God know if mankind truly loved him? Emma Hughes states, “Paradise Lost illustrates God’s creation of man and free will as evidence of His perfect nature, not as a contradiction of His benevolence,”(Hughes). God creating man with free will was no mistake. Milton states, ¨In the beginning how the Heavens and Earth rose out of Chaos,¨(1, 9).
Pascal believed in heaven as possible infinite gain, however Descartes believed that the nature and existence of an external world as something that cannot be fully known or understood. Pascal also believed that the belief in God as the only reasonable choice, when Descartes believed that God should always be held true. Their beliefs still back up this objection though. If nothing is known about the external world, or the external world is infinite gain, there is still no absolute certainty in which side of the wager to choose, therefore betting on God as true is still the most reasonable
He fancied the thought of being adored and being seen as a God to a new species. McGuigan's Victor implies the same idea at the end of the movie when he says, “There’s no Satan. No God. Only humanity. Only me!” He challenges that there is no supernatural beings that will reward or punish a person after death.
