“Orthodox Judaism is distinguished by its maintenance of the traditional forms of worship in the Hebrew language, and of the traditional observances as prescribed by the Torah. “(http://www.ijs.org.au/Variants-within-Judaism/default.aspx ) The orthodox prayer is different from all the branches, The Orthodox prayer is “Blessed are You the God of our forefathers, God of Abraham, God of Isaac and God of Jacob, the great mighty God who bestows beneficial kindness and creates all, who recalls the kindness of the patriarchs and brings a redeemer to their children’s children, for his Name’s sake, with love. O King, Helper, Saviour and Shield, Blessed are You - the Shield of Abraham” (http://www.ijs.org.au/Variants-within-Judaism/default.aspx
Judaism is one of the oldest religions in the world. Over the years, Judaism has evolved into many different denominations. This separation between Jews is mostly because of their different interpretations of the scriptures. These different denominations range from extremely orthodox and traditional to very liberal and flexible. Orthodox Judaism is as true to the traditional Judaism as it gets.
“Love your neighbor as yourself.” This command, given by Jesus’ in Mark 12:31, tells everybody love others just as much as themselves. David Malter, a very Christ-like character from The Chosen, by Chaim Potok, puts this command into practice. He exemplifies many of Jesus’ most valuable character-traits. Although Mr. Malter does not believe that Jesus is the Messiah, he still follows many of his commands without even knowing it. He cares for and loves his son more than anything.
Christianity is arguably one of the the most influential and important aspects that originated in western civilization. The religion started out as a small sect of Judaism and a man named Jesus spreading his word with a few followers. For centuries, Christians in Rome endured persecution and secret worship. With the appeal of eternal salvation and the hierarchy of the church, Christianity gradually spread, began to rise, and eventually became the prominent religion in Rome. Today, Christianity is the most widely practiced religion in the world.
Beliefs: 6-10 most important beliefs about God and the Bible 1. God – I belief that God is Love and the one who spoke to create life and constantly shows his unconditional love to his creation. He is jealous for His creation and has proven His love through Jesus and the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 14:33; 1 John 4:7-9; 1 John 4:16; Ezekiel 36:6) 2. Jesus Christ – I believe that Jesus is God’s unconditional love in action and the only way to achieve a personal relationship with
(p 106) God is making it known to His people that He is their God, who saved them and is worthy of their love, worship and praise. Clowney (2013) writes, “God’s commandments call His people to acknowledge Him as their Savior and Lord” (p107). The first commandment conveys the importance of His people accepting this reality and “governs the rest: ‘You shall have no other gods before me’” (Exodus 20:4) (Clowney, 2013, p.
Casy had multiple similarities to Jesus Christ. Casy was an astounding preacher in his lifetime. Casy was so great at it that he would get the people “ talkin’ in tongues” and “baptise them” (Steinbeck 21). Casy was a person who lived a life in a way that Jesus did. He would strive to live the best way that he could.
I am a reform Jew and to me my religion is very important. To me my religion is amazing, for it makes me feel like a happy and a whole person. It makes me feel a part of something bigger than I am, and all my traditions feel like a truth to me. It has only been in the past couple of years that I have been so engaged, but it seems like it has always been a large part of me that I just needed to explore with an open mind, and so I have decided to to learn as much as I can. Even though my middle school is not a Jewish school I still feel a part of the community.
One of the most beloved songs in the Passover seder is "Dayenu", in which means "would have sufficed" or been enough. The Jewish community expresses their gratitude and gives thanks to God for the wonderful things and many gifts he has done for them. Following the meal and worship, Jews recite the Psalm 113-118 to praise God. Hallel is an act of praise and thanksgiving. The Passover seder is concluded with Nirtzah, a song that
5). Christianity also upholds the belief that God was in the beginning and he was the creator of all things. Christians also believe in messengers, or disciples, who were sent to spread the word of God and to “bear witness to the light” (Doc 6.). However, the messenger and God himself was not always accepted. Similar to Islamic faith, the reason for existence for Christians is to please their God, and receive salvation through Jesus Christ so they may live eternally in
The founders of the organization personally believe that there is only one, true God. God’s plan for them is to share the love of Jesus Christ everywhere they go through their acts of kindness and love (“What Drives Us”). By helping these children they are fulfilling the plans the Lord has set out for them. The other reason that Helping Honduras Kids has spent their time and money making the abandoned children of Honduras’ lives better is because of the commandments written in the Bible. Matthew 22:37-39 states, “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
Each tradition in their own way primarily seek to follow the pivotal Jewish Teachings. Orthodox and Reform Jews trace their roots to a common ground which is back to the very beginning of time to when Moses received word from God on Mount Sinai giving him the Torah. Although both forms of Judaism follow different practices while in the traditions of these laws, Orthodoxy and Reform Jews still have more similarities than differences between each of their own. Some traditions carried on by the Reform, such as the development of the synagogue as a center for one’s community and not just a place of prayer and worship, have
A bible verse that often reminds of this message is found in 1 John 1:9; “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” I believe that the Bible was written by God through others. I believe that it is the word of God and that we were meant to learn it and to live by it. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also the to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.”- Romans 1:16-17 I believe that Jesus died on the cross. I believe that he died on the cross to save us from our sins.
