Similarities and Differences between Christianity and Islam This section on Christianity and Islam has been very interesting for me. As a devout Christian, I’ve always had an interest in learning about Islam. We were given good information for this unit, but I had to do a little more research because Sura 2 and 4 in the Qur’an did not give me basic concepts for Muslims. What astounded me were the similarities between the Fateha (Sura 1:1-7) and the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13). They both focus on adoration, submission, and Supplication.

4 MAT Review of Entwistle Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Tanya Johnson Liberty University Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Summary Entwistle’s Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity (2010) helps us to understand why psychology and Christianity should be intergraded and he gives reasons why the two can coexist and be used together.

Gennlie Pizarro Government 12 Factions are groups of people who think the same and share the same ideas and beliefs. In other words factions are people who are all like-minded. Furthermore together factions attempt to influence the government, because they are interested in what is best for themselves as well as their families. James Madison argued that we should guard against factions because he felt they “opposed the public good.” In fact one of Madison’s greatest fears was of “tyranny by a faction” imposing its will on the rest of the nation. Religion is a great example.
By the general public there are many misconceptions of the customs, beliefs, ideas and goals of Muslims. There has also been an increase in anti-Islamic sentiment and Islam phobia since the September 11, 2001 attack on U.S. Although there are many misconceptions, Islam followers continue to having their inter religion differences, and strive to stay truthful and faithful to their Muslim roots in the modern world.

This dilemma is best presented in the
Islamic Fundamentalism I INTRODUCTION Islamic Fundamentalism, diverse political and social movements in Muslim countries of North Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia, which have as their goal national government based on the principles and values of Islam. Although these movements all seek to restore social justice based on sharia (Islamic law), they differ in the form of government they seek and in how strictly they believe the government should interpret the law. For many people in the West, the term “Islamic fundamentalism” evokes images of hostage crises, embassies under siege, hijackings, and suicide bombers. But these images hardly present a comprehensive picture. The ranks of Islamic fundamentalists include Muslims who provide much-needed services to the poor through Islamic schools, medical clinics, social welfare agencies, and other institutions.
It is true that Islam is the fastest growing religion today because Islam is spreading all over the world through immigration, high birth rates, and the power of political and economic. Islam insisted on the assumption of political power, they do not spread their faith through their Qur’ans of words, but spread through the Islamic conquest that many economists and power struggle people may convert into Islam. First point, Islam is the fastest growing religion because “true Islam functions within a community (the Umma) that optimally carries its own political identity” in Corduan book page 94.

As long as their faith is Islam, they could worship all together in all their mosques and they keep religion festival all together.
