Reflection Paper In this reflection paper, I choose Marx and Freud’s religious view to discuss, because in some ways their perspective of religion was similar. Marx thought Religions is pure illusion. It will be leading a worse consequence. Freud thought religion is a type of psychological tools to let us put our hopes、morality and ideality on the man who was called “God”, is a supernatural being，and trying to belittle their own value.
Catholicism was her driving force to write these stories and lay out her messages of selfishness, pride, vulnerability, and greed. Her characters are faced with a calling from God to do right from wrong. If they shy away from this calling, the character is seen to be a bad person. However, in O 'Connor 's eyes, God and faith can help embrace good and overcome evil. These characteristics are still displayed in our everyday life.
All of the suggestion in the song point to the need to respect others and give them dignity they deserve as fellow human beings. There are several examples of times when this can be applied. The first stanza states “the key is always under the mat”, meaning that there is always a place where the door is open, and where a person can go to feel safe. In these times there are many people who are homeless, we should help work toward producing a place where they can go and feel safe. In the next line it reads “go to church “cause your momma says to”.
In inherit the wind Bertram Cates challenged the larger society by teaching his beliefs in darwinism. He knew that this was wrong, but when tried in court he tried to convince society to change and push them to believe that what he did was not wrong. “But your client is wrong. He is deluded. He has lost his way.”
That is, religion can foster an “us versus them” mentality that often escalates into sectarian violence and extremism. Jensen has argued that religious cosmologies based on the belief in a cosmic struggle between good and evil forces, such as God and the Devil, Heaven and Hell, facilitate lethal violence by promoting intolerance and a disinclination to negotiate or compromise.” Throughout history people have prosecuted and been prosecuted in the name of religion. Believing in Heaven and Hell becomes ridicules when the preachers of religion are hypocrites. If you don’t believe in Hell because of the hypocrisy of religion and religious professors, it renders Hell an ineffective means of righteous
Beowulf and The Seafarer both reflect the values held by the Anglo-Saxons. The warrior way of life and religion both were held in high regard in their society. In contrast with that though, the medieval English society that Chaucer wrote about were more of a selfish society, even those who belonged to the church. The actions of these societies reflect their values, regardless of their titles and outside appearance. Looking at literature from different periods of times, will always reflect the values that the societies during that time held dear to their
If we take those other possibilities, it could be that, for example the religion Hinduism or Buddhism is correct, and we are totally worried about our egos that we would be incarcerated because we got it wrong. If we put all those possibilities up in Pascal 's wager it would start to not make sense at all to just believe in God because of all these other possibilities that could be out there. That’s one the major problems, and that is why I think Pascal 's wager fails. He is favoring towards Christianity to believe in God than realizing that there are other outcomes in this world. In brief, Pascal 's wager fails to demonstrate that putting a bet on God could lead to infinite happiness, and the best outcome.
Americans I believe our general responsibility is to say and know the national anthem, pay tribute to those who serve or have served, and excess the right to vote. I also feel we are held accountable to be an upstanding citizen and help the community. However, I feel as Christian citizens it 's our responsibility to share the gospel of Christ to whoever we can and show the world a Christian perspective. Ordinarily, as Americans, we should know and participate in the saying of the national anthem and The Pledge of Allegiance. At all sporting events the national anthem is played, this should be a time of respect.
The Great Awakening put its faith in Scripture while the Enlightenment put theirs in science. Christians and philosophes both wanted religious freedom and they shared a scorn for political or religious leaders who appealed power over others by virtue of divine right. Both didn’t accept the basic principle of why the king of England supported by the Church of England or had any inherent right to rule over the American
People believe that the primary cause of wars and violence worldwide is religion. They base this assumption on two reasons; the first reason is examples of some wars that were actually caused by religion, the second one is words in the religious books that are misinterpreted. Most of those who believe that religion is the cause of wars, give the example of the Israeli-Palestinian, which according to these people is caused by religious beliefs. Jews believes that Palestine is actually the location of the ancient land of Israel, which according to the Hebrew, was granted to the Jews by God.
I have received a great education and an understanding of my religion that has readied me for an amazing high school career and later a great life. One of the most important values OLG has taught me is to accept everyone because we are all equal in God’s eyes. OLG has a very diverse student population that has introduced me to many different cultures and religions. In the real world, we are not all going to look or act the same. God made each of us different!
Many rationalists like Benjamin Franklin were very outspoken on how they wanted the people to be able to try different things and see how they would benefit them. This helped make our country into what it is today. A place where all ideas are able to flow and try and benefit all people of all creeds. In conclusion, the colonial era was a time of great literate prosperity with multiple ideologies flourishing. The examples that we can see from both the puritan and rationalist ideologies prove that and help us understand our beginnings
One Life, by Scot McKnight, was an appealing testament of how we should go about life in a way that reflects God’s mission and plans for His people. The purpose for this book was so common people reading are, hopefully, influenced to live out their “one life” for God. McKnight explains, in great detail, of what God’s intentions are for us. He also provides the reader with many options on how to overcome temptations we face. This book was discussing several obstacles that may seem as a concern, but are also great descriptions on what every human may run into; however, it is also very clear in McKnight’s writing, that we can abstain from those worldly desires.

He uses examples to explain the differences between just and unjust laws (4). Also how everything that Adolf Hitler did was legal but immoral, just like what America was doing at the time (4). He uses religious, historical, and political examples to show the clergymen that he is just as educated as they are. His religious examples include Jesus who was an extremist for love, Paul the extremist for the word of God. It also includes Shadrach, Meshach, Abendigo who refused to obey Nebuchadnezzar’s immoral laws, Amos the extremist for justice, and Martin Luther who was another example of a religious extremist (6).
