Although a few sacred readings and the form that followers pray are similar in both religions they are also slightly different. For example the most important text in Christianity is The Bible (that consist of The Old Testament and New Testament). Jews however, consider the TaKa’kh their “holy book” (which consist of mostly The Old Testament). When a Jewish prayer is taking place, Hebrew is spoken; when a Christian prays they do it in the language they regularly speak. Furthermore, Christians believe in heaven, hell, and purgatory, in other words, they believe that where they will go after death depends on the way they have executed life.

With all of the differences in the dogmas between Christianity and Mormonism, there is strong evidence that these two faiths cannot be linked together solely on the fact that they both believe in Jesus Christ being the savior of mankind.

Explain the main ethical principles of religion you have studied (25 marks) Christianity is a religion of many different branches and because of this there is no universal set of ethics. This lack of absolute ethics amongst Christians is due to the diversity of Christianity as there are many denominations for example Roman Catholic Christianity and Protestantism. Roman Catholic Christianity bases its ethics on the Holy Bible and the magisterium which consists of the Pope and the cardinals; in contrast to Protestantism that sees the Holy Bible as the only source of authority. Though both denominations follow the bible they interpret and accept the different parts of the bible. In general, there are similar ethical beliefs amongst Christians due to Judaism being the only root of Christian ethics.
As two major denominations of Christianity, Protestantism and Catholicism are both based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible, as well as the concept that faithful believers go to Heaven, while misbelievers go to Hell. However, the ideologies of these two factions differ on significant concepts, specifically the authority of the Pope and the doctrine of Sola Scriptura (2). Sola Scriptura is the Protestant doctrine that states that “biblical scripture is the only source of church authority” (2), and that “Jesus Christ is always head of the church” (2), thus the Catholic pope cannot be the lead Christian authority, because “no man is comparable to Jesus” (2). Catholics believe the exact opposite; that the Pope is the divine substitute of Christ as head of the church and that the “Holy Scripture alone is not sufficient enough for church authority” (2). In his Renaissance humanist play, The Duchess of Malfi, John Webster explores the opposition between these two major branches of Christianity, in the context of social and political constructs.
