Whereas in Muslim religion, they don’t believe in destiny. Furthermore, shared knowledge shapes the personal knowledge in which the religious rules and beliefs are concerned. In Hinduism, you cannot marry a person from another religion and that’s what almost all people belief and everyone follows, which why it is shared knowledge. However, I do not agree with knowledge system why I should only get marry with person from my religion, why not from other religion? Is it because religion says so or that’s what our shared knowledge?
Of course, this world suffers from avarice, misused power, and bloodshed. When I read the Lord of the Rings the consideration of inequality in gender roles did not occur to me, and my understanding of male and female roles was not disrupted. It is not sexists in any way, but it arouses discussions about its views of gender roles. Granted, Tolkien built a male dominated world where nearly every female is a background character, but there are three who have significant roles to play in the plot. Stereotypes are characteristics shaped by society and every culture has its own gender roles.
Here is where the Igbo and Christian religions differ. The Ibo believed in multiple of gods, whereas the Christians focus on one. They also disagree on the feelings towards their creator. Later into their conversation Mr. Brown says to Akunna, “You are afraid of Chukwu. In my religion Chukwu is a loving father and need not be feared by those who do his will” (Achebe 110).
The irony of this situation rests in the fact that most of the laws, based on the Bible, of Gilead were enforced in order “to protect women,” yet Offred is not being “protected” due to her fear that the Commander might expel her if she does not sleep with him. “He is not a monster, I think” (Atwood 255). Offred is not trying to think of the Commander in a negative light. She would like to think that he is still a good man. It is the preposterous ruling of the society that has led him to this.
John portrays his confusion towards religion and faith, instead of connecting with either option. John goes to church but admits to an amount of doubt. In comparison Owen is very religious and has no doubt of God’s existence. However, Owen dislikes organized religion, as a
I use to feel that as women we were generally the more natural nurturer, and men played more of a protecting role. However, I feel that has changed. For example, since there are so many children growing up in single parent homes, both men and women are forced to be both mom and dad, nurturer and protector. This is just one example of the different aspects that once seemed to be more separate, but now similar and shared. I was raised with a very traditional idea of gender roles.
Each group ignores others and yet the three religion have their roots traced back to the father Abraham. History said that Israelites are the chosen people of god but these all other faiths sees themselves as the chosen ones and so this debate affected their relationships so badly. Most human beings needs more time to revisit classes so that they can be corrected in either ways round. According to the trends I saw in reading the
On a personal level, this Okoye’s claim appears unfair. Using the word “religions” it refers to a certain set of principles and beliefs that have their own say and foundation. As far as I can engage my personal knowledge, the difference between Christianity and any other faith, other than the Abrahamic religions, is the significance of the Trinity and the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the Son of God. I am curious to know in what respect, the author claims that idolatry in the African cultural context does not exist and that there is no paganism of any sort. Evidently, such rituals do not resonate with Christian values or tradition.
The novel shows the perfect Indian Mentality of not accepting inter caste marriages and the custom of still living in age –old orthodox and impractical viewpoint. The novels suggest right through that India is a very religious country and older people have tremendous views on religion and young people are quite unable to relate to it. For Bhagat, generational divide is one that India greatly needs to bridge. The older generation grew up in a time of shortage and prized a suffocation social conformity where everyone lived separate but equal lives. The young are almost a race apart with a liberal attitude that is opposed to the Indian hierarchies of caste and creed.
God fearing- It has been found that the people of north Indians are very superstitious regarding their culture and have a fear in their regarding various laws which use to exist 1000 of years ago and try to follow each one of it till date. 3.
