Even if our wedding was conducted in Church, we must decide to cleave or else no blessings at all will occur in our marriage. Our vows must be for life and to do this, we must have a good relationship with God individually at our home. It is also true that, “The Bible gives us guidance on everything from A to Z, a fact graphically illustrated by Psalms 119, which features twenty-two sections beginning with the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabets. The section shows us the place of the law of God in a believer’s life” (Haddon 2000: 66). I have to quote this author again because what he wrote is completely true.
Feeling a strong desire to become exemplary Christians, they had no moral right to complain and show fear or weakness. God was the source of help and relief for them and these people always tried to remain strong in order to show the power of Christianity to Native Americans. Their boundless faith in God inspired them in their efforts to support other captives. Secondly, all three main characters of the considered captivity narratives had a strong understanding of the fact that this period of life was a punishment for the sins of all Christians. Consequently, they needed to pay a heavy price for sins of those people who forgot about God.
It has given meaning to lives that may seem otherwise hopeless. As we realize or not, religion has provided a universal language and culture among those who believe in a higher power, god as a lord that created us. The spirit or being receiving the worship and praise may not be the same, but the practices and the basic thought are usually similar and serve the same purpose to give direction, insight, courage, and a divine connection. All religion in the world teaches us how to behave and how to be a good person in running our lives in the world, no one religion exist in the world teaches us to do bad
Quakers believe that everybody has some of God in them and that each human being is of unique worth. They integrate religion and everyday life, and believe God is love, and that the light of God is in every single person in the world. Quakers work actively to make the world a better place. They are particularly concerned with human rights. Based on their belief in equality of all human beings, social justice, peace, freedom of conscience, and environmental issues, Quakers seek to live simply so as to reduce the burden on the world community.
Their refusal to change their religious ideals and beliefs stemmed from the fact that they were passed along to them from generation to generation, it is what they lived by, what helped them survive all these years, and change would only bring about destruction of all that is safe, familiar and unifying. “We worship in that way. It teaches us to be thankful for all the favors we receive; to love each other and to be united. We never quarrel about religion” (Red Jacket 231), the natives feared that introducing new principles would create rifts and endless quarrels between tribe members. Their beliefs also gave them their own special identity which separated them from other nations and they were immensely proud of
This is the faith the Lord commands me to teach in the Church; the faith that is directed at Him and not at His blessings. If we all truly believe in God and live by this faith, many people will not be sceptical of our motives for worshipping Him; many will not be critical of our conduct, teachings and practices and the Gospel of Christ will not be exposed to the kind of disrepute it is today. Living by faith is about total obedience to all God’s will and a lifestyle of total submission and this life is not possible without His grace and the Holy Spirit. It is self-sacrificial, self-denying and extremely painful, yet incredibly satisfying. It is humbling, yet exalting; impoverishing, yet enriching.
Although we were taught to pray five times, fast in Ramadan and learned every pillar of Islam that teaches patience, humanity, and peace and this is something I not only feel good about because that’s what makes my parents happy but also because I feel spiritually strong and contented. This makes me to not go astray and tightly hold the rope that connects me with Allah. Like the common belief amongst Muslims who think that Islamophobia (the term I seriously hate) has affected the global community and Muslims are always misinterpreted by non-Muslims so they should know that most of the people who have met and have known Muslims around them have no such thing because sensible and educated people know that extremists, terrorists are retards and have no religion and they could associate themselves with any religion may it be Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism or Judaism etc. And we cannot judge people based on the religion they follow. I won’t call myself a perfect human being but I strive to do well and go towards the betterment of my soul and character every
Divinity is easily classified as a supernatural state because again, it cannot be proven. The text states that, “There is no supernatural order: there is only one world, the slowly changing human lifeworld, the world that we continually make and remake.” (page 40). To me, this presents the idea that we as humans are the sole controllers of the world around us. The only exception that I would add would be that we must abide by the laws of nature. Gravity and physics still exist, but religion is more of a social concept.
For the honor of the present age it was reserved to institute societies of another description upon principles calculated to remove all party prejudices. This kind is distinguished by the title of Bible Societies. Their goal is to furnish all nations with the Scriptures in their native language without note, comment, or remark. This is charity to souls – true, godlike charity on a scale worthy the friends of man. Among the many benevolent institutions that honor the Christian name, none wears a more kind aspect on the general happiness of
I think that each follower should learn the theory behind its own religion, however religion isn’t based on reason but how much faith and hope people put into, in other words, the amount of dedication people give. As proof, the majority of the Gods that people believe in have never had evidence of really being alive or scientific reasons/proofs of existing. Also, most of the times, what brings people to look for a certain religion is the emotional connection with that religion's teachings, their founder, or the rituals associated with that religion, which is part of the emotional concept .In other words, people use emotion as a big part of a religious belief because, most of it, was never proven to really
