He basically degrades the entire Bible by saying that there is no fact in the world and everything is an interpretation. He claims the truth is unnecessary to be spoken because it is only necessary to speak the truth when the untruth is so false that it can be detected. Nietzsche shares his belief that a human’s life is 100% controlled by the individual and all success should be credited to that individual. Then he disrespects all Christians by claiming they are a species of weak failures looking for pity that shall parish to the strong-willed all-powerful being. I strongly disagree with almost everything Fredrick Nietzsche writes about in this section of the reading.
These are the questions I hope to answer. I could simply answer these questions by saying that some people are just ignorant. But I believe that nearly all Christians who dislike gays believe that they have a very strong basis for feeling the way they do. One of the first reasons that these people will give is that the Bible says homosexuality is a sin. The Bible gets the blame for a lot of things but especially for outright rejection of homosexuals.
When does life start? 3. What is the societal implication of abortion? Most Catholics and Protestants would agree that abortion is unacceptable on the grounds that humans are made in God's image and therefore it is a grave sin to kill anything human (Christians therefore believe all humans are equal in value). They provide evidence for the idea that life starts at conception with biblical quotes like "the days ordained to me were written in your book before one even came to be" and "your eyes saw my unformed body" suggesting that our personhood in God's view starts at as soon as the egg is fertilised.
Another thing that the Church was often criticized for was the lack of separation between Church and State. In all matters, whether they be religious or political, the Church, mainly the Pope, was the ultimate authority. The Protestants also had a problem with the idea of transubstantiation, or the belief that the bread and wine served at mass are literally the flesh and blood of Christ. The use of Latin in mass was also frowned upon, because no one could understand what the priest was saying. Clerical celibacy yet another thing that the Protestants didn’t like, and because of this, both Luther and Calvin were wedded.
And I interrupt this not only as just other gods, but also things that hinder our religion. We do need to accept other and love other’s but not to turn against God’s laws and plans for us. Also, with the Declaration of Independence says from the first amendment that the government will make no law about making a new religion. So, even the bible and the First Amendment says they should be separate.
Christians took incarnation, Jesus resurrection, and trinity with a lot of seriousness, but Muslim’s did not believe in any of them. Christians do not believe in 3 gods, but a union of three persons God being the head, this trinity concept was normally rejected by the Islam. Christians were perceived as idol worshipers. Christians too worshiping of Jesus and the attributing God’s partners is perceived as idolatry. They differed too in the way they viewed Abraham.
In this paper I will be discussing Islam and Christianity as well as the roles both Jesus and Muhammad played in the matter. While Muhammad pronounced the he was Allah, Jesus laid his life to die for all sinners. September 11th was the ultimate clash between the beliefs of Jesus and Muhammad. In all honesty there can never be an overall definition of religion, for there are multiple religions within our world today. Emile Durkheim explains that, “religion is a unified system of beliefs and practices relative to sacred things that is to say things set part and forbidden beliefs and practices which unite into one single moral community called a church, all those who adhere to them.” (1) Religion can vary so widely that there is also room for error.
Some myths seem to be closely related when we look back on them. But yet these two, paganism and Christianity, are so different even though they are both relating to religion. In Christianity there is only one God and these believers don’t accept there are other gods. In Paganism there are many Gods; believers of this religion accept other Gods are alive. These myths affect many people’s lives.
There are a lot of people in the church who say that being gay, bi, or lesbian is a sin because it’s in the bible. Those people are wrong no were in the bible does it say that being gay, bi, or lesbian is a sin. What the bible says is “Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable” (Leviticus 18:22). My understanding is being gay is not a sin but acting upon those feelings is a sin. As a Christian myself I feel this discrimination is brought on by the lack of their knowledge in the bible.
To the Druids, this is against their ingrained convictions: no one god can control the whole world. This leads to the consequence that caused the extinction of Druidism. At first the Romans considered both Druidism and Christianity the threats to their power; therefore they put a lot of oppression over the followers of these two religions to the point of execution. Unlike Druidism, Christian belief was centered to one figure; therefore
