Nathan also uses the Ring Parable to explain that only God can distinguish the true religion. The believer of a faith is incapable of knowing whether their religion is best. He cannot exclude his own religion, but he also cannot be sure that it is his. Just like the parable, the father is not accessible to consult on which ring is true. God is not accessible to man to ask which religion is the truth.
We must be able to use knowledge to question judgement. A question many people would ask that does not have empirical evidence to prove tends to be if God exists? There is no empirical evidence whether god exists, inductive reasoning and intuition strongly oppose each other at this point because deductive reasoning would ask for evidence to suggest that God exists however my intuition would say that God does exist through personal experiences. CREATIONISM: However the big bang could be argued because monotheists believe that a higher being is only possible to create such an event.
Firstly, hard postmodernism denies the existence of God, and it springs from atheism or pantheism. This is non-Christian mainly because it denies the existence of God and all that is holy. Soft postmodernism, on the other hand, are only suspicious and very careful with the acceptance of a truth. Uncertainty is the most common characteristic of soft postmodernists. This kind of postmodernism is also what constitutes what people call the “emerging Church” which is open to everything that people used to call divisions of beliefs.
“Faith is the great copout, the excuse to evade the need to think, and evaluate evidence, faith is the belief in spite of or perhaps because the lack of evidence” stated John Stackhouse, I disagree with this statement made. Religious expressions have grown deeper into society and will continue to do so. In my understanding faith is an vital aspect of an individuals life, whether it is to be one of religious or non-religious
This is stated by Rita Gross who considers the psychological and spiritual aspects of humans as explanations on why there are many forms of religion. She declares that religious diversity, which is an inevitable phenomena, exists because it is impossible for humans to conform to only one type of religion psychologically and spiritually (Gross, 2015). This notion is supported by William James who said that it is not possible that creatures in such different positions and with such different powers as human individuals are, should have exactly the same functions and the same duties. No two of us have identical difficulties, nor should we be expected to work out identical solutions. Each, from his peculiar angle of observation, takes in a certain sphere of fact and trouble, which each must deal with in a unique manner (James, 2014).
The public would also have a more obedient attitude, because a high power would demand compliance, which is hard to argue. when a religious leader gives the rule, it is also considered an edict. Reforms are faster to implement a theocratic government is considered authoritarian, so changes that are to be imposed do not have to be discussed at length or debated by different parties.
God 's existence has been a continuous debate certainly for centuries. The issue of God 's existence is debatable because of the different kind of controversies that can be raised from an "Atheist as being the non-believer of God" and a "Theist who is the believer of God". An atheist can raise different objections on the order of the universe by claiming that the science is a reason behind the perfection of the universe. In Aquinas 's fifth argument, he claims that the order of the universe cannot be explained by chance, but only by design and purpose. To explain this order of the universe he concludes that, there is an intelligent being whom we call "God".
The state cannot protect one religion because people of other religions may become angry. I believe that if a government supports and shows what religion they believe in, it would persuade people on liking that religion over another. Since the state has more power, they can influence the people. “…private organizations — including churches — it cannot discriminate against others…” (Ragosta, freep.com).
Rights and Responsibility of a U.S Citizen Though people often confuse the rights and responsibilities of a citizen, they are both two different things. According to Brainpop (n. d.) “a right is a freedom that is protected, such as the right to free speech and religion. A responsibility is a duty or something you should do, such as recycling or doing your homework.” The difference can therefore be observed in the fact that the right is something the law protects you with, while the responsibility is something the law requires you to fulfill. The right should not make someone forget that they have responsibilities.
I conclude that though religion has good intentions people use it for their own benefit. Religion may have been a point of unity in the past and it may be so today too but religion is a contentious issue now and seems to be creating a wedge among
Civil society tends to adhere to the common good, not by governmental enforcement, but in the interest of mediating institutions of society. These institutions are the religious bodies that represent the religious freedom of the people. The mediating institutions refer to the church and the body of religious believers; they serve as the buffer between religious freedom and law. Since the writings of the American Constitution, society has been granted the freedom of religious expression. However, this was not in the interest of society converting everyone to their own beliefs, but a statement in good faith to maintain peace among the people.
The second section is referred to as the Free Exercise Clause, since that 's exactly what it guarantees: you are allowed to practice any kind of religion you want, without interference from the government. This is what we might call a positive right, since it allows you to do something, rather than keeping you from doing it. Like all rights, of course, this comes with some conditions, among them being that the exercise of your religion can 't interfere with or prohibit the rights of other individuals. The Establishment Clause is a little different, and more encompassing.
In the society created by Aldous Huxley in Brave New World, there is no dominant religion or prominent presence thereof because it seems to conflict with “machinery, medicine and happiness”. One can see how that is true because religion is usually guided by set superstitions that inhibit one from scientific pursuit. For example, evolution is a risky subject when referring to the Bible because that book says God created the world, but in most of modern-day society and in this one, it is clear that God did not create the world. Science is backed by reason and logic while religion is backed up by the faith of the individual. In this society, everything is organized in a way that makes logical sense: the caste system, creating multitudes of humans
