Judaism mainly stress on having only one God and the unity of it. Christianity can be sometimes misunderstood, as Christians believe that the one God is the Holy Trinity. Therefore they both have a similarity of having one god. Both two religions believe that this God is the beginning and cause of all that came to earth. God cares about the entire creation and requirements of the well-being
Goldberg’s essay Judaism as a Religious System in The Cambridge Guide, p. 301). Goldberg, like most Jewish scholars, omits a discussion of blood and atonement in the sacrificial system. He omits a discussion of the cruelty contained in the above-mentioned genres. This is the subject of this book. As a celebrated commentator Goldberg deserves praise.
He is viewed, as a result of the harsh times during which the Abrahamic religions were originally created, as a fundamentally human deity; both cruel and vengeful. As a result of their fear of God, many Orthodox Christians allow their worldview and the conclusions they reach to be outlined for them in the Bible. An example of their conclusions being determined by how they define the concept of God would be the modern debate regarding if homosexual marriage should be legalised. Orthodox Christians, in particular, believe that God is against homosexuality, as is outlined in the Bible, and would punish humanity should his will be disobeyed, so they believe it should not be legalised. These Orthodox Christians are, as a result of their perspective on knowledge, difficult to reconcile with modern technological, societal, and medical advancements, for example.
Even though both these religions are similar in belief they are still different. For example, Islam and Christianity believe in one supreme god, but Christianity believes in a trinity consisting of God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost that Muslims don’t believe in. Christians believe that humans are born sinner, bearing the sins of Adam and Eve. Muslims
The validity of Descartes’ model of knowledge is further questioned when Descartes seem to use God’s existence to escape this flaw in logic. Descartes wants to prove that God exist by claiming it as a clear and distinct perception. However, in order to proof that he has to rely on his clear and distinct perception which is confirmed by God. The proof is known as the "Cartesian Circle. " By claiming both that our clear and distinct perceptions are true if God exist and that we know that God exist as we can clearly and distinctly perceive the idea of God.
There has to be a Creator to this all. The really sad part to me is that some wasted good critical thinking to try and disprove God exist. Our world has become so cynical and so lost without God being the focus anymore. Those who agree that there must be a beginning to it all, are on the right track and if they would just think logically and not as the devil’s advocate they would know that there is no other conclusion except that God most definitely exist and is the creator of this world and of the universe as a whole. It amazes me that scientist want to explain away the creator simply to prove that can critically thinking is a possibility.
There are so many different religions in the world. We will look at the striking differences between Hinduism and the three well known monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. In doing some research into each of these religions we can find differences right away. Hinduism stands out among the four because it is in one way a pantheistic religion but it is also a polytheistic one as well.
Monotheism is defined by Merriam-Webster as the doctrine or belief that there is only one God. Belief in only one supreme God differentiates monotheism from other known belief systems including polytheism, which is the belief in many gods, agnosticism, or the view that an existence of God or gods is unknown and unknowable, and atheism, which is the absence of belief in any God or gods. The Greek mono translates to “single, or alone,” and the Greek theos means literally “a god.” Monotheism is generally thought to be characteristic of the Abrahamic religions of Christianity, Judaism and Islam. There are, however, many other lesser-known monotheistic religions throughout the world including Druzism, Smaritanism, Baha’i, Zoroastrianism and
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 nation promised and chosen by God in the Old Testament. Hebrews or Jews, till now are monotheistic which is worshipping one single God and it is forbidden to worship other gods. It is their believe also not to marry non-Jews. Jews worship in a temple or synagogue and their spiritual leaders are called rabbis.
Religion and American Soceity I do believe that Religion society still exist and it still is important because in most countries religions are different from others and they have there own special way .People in America can be apart of any religion and go to whatever church they please or satisfy them , but to also make sure their receive what they went to the church to hear and praise about. Although some americans does not praise or worship the same god, it is apart of their religion of soceity . For example, chinese people praise a man that you would see in most of their resturants and maybe in their homes . Some Indians praise the same god as us but most doesn’t , some may go to the same church as us but others may prefer to praise their god somewhere other than a church.
