Baptism can bring the Christian faith to be one with fellow believers and provides a start. On that note, I view my baptism as a start to a good natured life with belief, and believe that it is beneficial to those who are ready to have a spiritual relationship with
I have never not been Catholic. Even though my parents are both Catholic and wanted to raise us to be Catholic, my sisters and I attended a lutheran preschool and we attended a methodist summer camp. My parents made sure to expose me to different religions while still practicing Catholicism. My faith is very important and personal to me. It’s something I can lean on during both good and bad times.
Instead, I focus on how I can make the world a little better now. I don’t regret my time in the Catholic church, but I’m glad I’ve found a way of life that feels right for my own beliefs; beliefs I live to their fullest potential every
I soon found myself intrigued to affirm Christianity intellectuality, but was aware even when I was a child that maintain an identity in religion was a necessity (Frost, W. J. (2012, March)). I differed from most Quakers of my time with the ability to understand the reason behind Christianity a little more (Frost, W. J. (2012, March)). I during my time found that you cannot just develop one law or pamphlet, I instead emphasized rationale in the different cases in my life such as my trial in England to the founding of Pennsylvania (Frost, W. J.
As a baptized Catholic, our call is to invite others into the Catholic Church and to preach God’s word. Christ himself instructs us that baptism is necessary for salvation, "Amen, amen I say to thee, unless a man is born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." John
I happened to grow up in a small town in New York and there were kind Christian people that reached out to me and showed genuine care. As time went on I deepened my understanding of Christianity by attending a small Christian, Liberal Arts college in Western New York. After college, I continued my pursuit of Christianity. My husband even became a pastor at multiple local churches. When I started teaching at an early college with a diverse population, my faith and belief in a higher power began to stretch.
Religion is an almost universal institution in human society and an integral part of our lives. Every religion preaches morality and love for everything around us. Religion teaches compassion and helps to find ourselves. It affects both: on the processes which are taking place within society and on each person in the whole. Many of us consider religion universal and, this means, a significant institution of societies.
Although it is taught in christianity that god will hear you when you pray to him no matter where you are, some individuals may feel a strengthened connection to God when they choose to pray or reflect on their own lives inside a church as opposed to somewhere else such as a workplace or home environment. Relevance of the sacred space to the community A sacred space can play an integral role in community direction and development. A sacred space allows a community to come together to express their need of spiritual nourishment. The sacred space of the church can help an individual connect to a place of belonging, and this bolonging is what creates a community. When all these people feel the the same connection and sense of belonging to this church they gain direction, in relevance to not only their own lives, but direction towards God and how to live as God wants them to.
I realized that I did not believe in the church, but kept it to myself. I enjoyed attending the weekly meetings. Youth activities brought me some of the closest friends I have ever made and daily scripture study brought the family into the living room every morning to talk and laugh. While small things about the church irked me, I could see all the good this religion was providing to both my family and me so I kept it in my life. Keeping with the status quo worked great for a while.
I believe in God, humanity, metaphysics, epistemology, and ethics. Though, my worldview on education includes numerous elements beyond the core elements of the Christian worldview. Where a child gets their education to me is black and white. Either you go to a public school, private Christian school or are homeschooled. Neither one is correct and that doesn’t change anything about that child.
