(Keefer,1990). People were accepted to something that was not represented by the large churches. They could feel that they were equal to anyone when it came to salvation. Wesley would prove to them by his philanthropy to the poor, sick and even prisoners. When most of England shunned, and looked down on letting them know of their class status.
When thinking of activities that make them happy though, many do not put volunteering on the top of their list. Surprisingly, volunteering not only contributes to the happiness all people strive for, it also provides dramatic improvement to overall emotional health. A study drawn from the Survey of Texas Adults 2004, indicated that serving others out of sheer altruism, genuineness, and humanitarian concern are exceptionally important in achieving better health. The serving process of volunteering provides unselfishness, sharing, other-directedness, and generosity. This is counteractive to the egocentric and self-serving culture that is popular in society today and can be potentially detrimental to both mental and behavioral health.
The concept of morality is commonly believed to be a byproduct of religion with “[n]early half of Americans believ[ing] that morality is impossible without belief in god” (Pyysiäinen 44). Yet, the correlation between the two seems to be less concrete with research showing that “[c]ountries with high rates of religiosity tend to have higher rates of homicide, juvenile mortality (including suicide), sexually transmitted diseases and adolescent pregnancy, and abortion ( 45). Moreover, a study evaluated by Pyysiäinen finds that “religiosity has little to nothing to do with how people evaluate the goodness or badness and acceptability vs. non-acceptability of particular moral judgements” (Pyysiäinen 47). Instead of religion creating morals, Broom
However, the biggest difference with the Chesapeake region’s inhabitants was that the Puritans didn’t aim primarily for economic benefit or trade. They wanted to create pure, moral Christian society based on moral living. By hard working, integration of religion in politics, and social development of certain lifestyle practices, Puritans had a large influence on the development of the New England colonies from 1630s through the 1660s. Puritans believed in hard work as the pathway of success since they thought they were favored by God to succeed (Doc I). They tried to shun idleness and believed that being lazy is not profitable (Doc C).
Historically humanity has ignored or completely neglected the appeals contained in the Sermon, as too difficult to attain. Most human endeavors or basic instincts go against man’s natural instincts. Sorrow in place of comfort, poverty over wealth, and not only forgiving our enemies but loving them. It was something G.K.Chesterton pondered, as he became a catholic convert. In his view “Christianity had not been tried and found wanting, it has been found to be too difficult and is yet untried.” We now exist in an achievement oriented culture heavily based on self esteem.
Life is precious because it is beautiful gift from god. If you take your life seriously then you truly understood each day is a gift. Sometimes because our life is so busy we forget how life is so fragile. It is ironic that we get glimpse when someone is dying, diagnostic with disease. The quality of life should not be measured by the part of it.
The Value of Life Life that was given to human beings by God has a very significant worth and meaning whereby individuals at times forget to show gratitude or be disappointed. Most people trust that they can be accepted if they have a good occupation and enough money but they do not recall that most individuals are influenced by those who have heard something to learn. Additionally, many people fail to recall that in order for an individual to earn vale, they are supposed to earn it. In the current economic times, the government is tasked with the role of creating worth in an individual by focusing on the position that they are accounted for. In case one is perceived from the point of view taken from the society, it should be believed that such individuals are supposed to be accorded to the actions that they partake and the kind of positions that they are in.
Naledi’s family is a poor family which is unable to receive any treatments. There are also more families out there that have the same case. Even though the book is not necessarily about poverty, there is still an aspect that concludes that there are a lot of people in this world suffering from poverty. That is why, there should be more inexpensive or free treatments provided for the
• Capitalism Under the system of capitalism the rich become richer and the poor become poorer, this is because the rich use their money to improve their own lives and not give sufficient payment to the lower class. Thus this one of the main causes of uneven distribution of wealth in society • Religious point of view The inclination of people towards their respective religion is decreasing. Judaism, Islam and Christianity teach their respective followers that charity is an obligation and that it has great reward. But because people are becoming more modernized and their inclination towards religion is now less, only a few of them give charity. As all those who are privileged do not pay taxes and charity money, the states fail to distribute the wealth equally in society, because the money which belongs to the wealthy remains with them.
Meet a very different culture and different people. We arrived, I was surprised, it was a poor country, and it was even worse than my homeland. It was a shock, but my father told that I would get benefit from this, and the benefit was that I would appreciate my country's beauty by going to a poor country like Sri Lanka. I saw different things, people there are so poor, they barely have money to feed themselves before feeding their children and their families, but the thing that mostly amazed is that they are happy no matter what are their circumstances. These people taught my family and me to live happy no matter how good or bad is your life.
