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.
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.
Neither one is correct and that doesn’t change anything about that child. Their religion is not being jeopardized by not going to a religious school. At the end of the day, no school or church will jeopardize one’s faith. The only person who can is that person. My Christian worldview on education is that the word of God can be expressed whatever institution a child goes too.
I grew up in mainstream Christianity in a denomination that is somewhat liberal. I learned the more positive Christian teachings about the Bible, but nothing that explained life beyond the commandments, don’t steal, don’t kill, don’t lie, and be a good person. My early thinking was dominated by ignorance and fear of the Bible, worry about sin, and anxiety of not understanding what my own life was to be about. When I found Unity’s metaphysical interpretation of the Bible, I simply could not get enough of it. It lifted all the fear, guilt, anxiety, misery and ignorance I had been carrying around all my life.
Throughout my adult life I have always known what my worldview is. I have always sided with the spiritual side as opposed to the material. I am a Christian and believe in one God who has sent his son, Jesus, to forgive us of our sins. Through my later years, my faith has never wavered. Through my adolescent years, however, I had lost my faith a few times do to different events that transpired in my life.
However, I have been intrigued by the Buddhist religion. My interest was spurred by the fact that my brother converted to Buddhism some years ago. I have visited the Buddhist Temple of San Antonio and have attended services there. The things that the Monk and the worshipers did and said followed along the same lines as described in the article I reviewed – relieve yourself of worry, honor and improve yourself, it is better to give than to receive, treat others with respect no matter the interaction, keep an open
“Because with every action, comment, conversation, we have the choice to invite Heaven or Hell to Earth.” Quoted by Rob Bell. After reading the article Heaven and Hell in Christian Thought I could not help but think of that quote, which is on my desk at home. There are so many different views on what heaven and hell may be like and I agree that we should consider that but you can live in constant thought about that, I believe that you can make a difference here on Earth and you have the power to make your life a heavenly place or a hellish place just by your actions. This article had so many different ideas and views that some I agreed with and some I just could not grasp. The idea of the three inconsistent propositions that is a major focus of the article, seems to be very interesting.
As well as not having the problems, there will be other things that will be done in Heaven. Like I said before, we would see those who are still on Earth through Heaven. In Heaven, we would be able to learn about the things we didn't understand on Earth, such as: what is life?, and what is my purpose? So really, what is Heaven? Well, we just gonna have to find
That is not the case for everyone who beliefs in religion. Religion influences people into being a moral individual but cannot enforce morality on people. Chaucer wrote about corrupt church officials and religious members, not about the ones who actually served the Lord with mind, heart and soul, so there could have been people that were entirely committed to living a moral life due to religion and its
I personally don’t think religion should play a part because it would still be considered doing something for a higher being. I’m not saying I don’t believe in god, I’m just saying we shouldn’t do “good” because “someone” is watching us. For example, a non-specific God said we should take care of the world we live in because it is the right thing to do or we would sin for not doing so. Anyone can clearly see anything that isn’t taken care of goes bad. God didn’t need to tell us that.
