I want to teach people the perfect gospel they can learn.” Leele: “Oh that’s nice. So what is your message for the people who are lost in their path and need
Religion at one time was very touchy subject in many cultures around the globe, as the world progressed more people became open to religion. Theses effects have lead to a society overflowing with religious moderates. Religious moderates are people who aren't fundamentalists and don't interpret their religious scripture in a literal context. They have tolerance for other religions and beliefs and believe that no faith should be forced upon you. Sam Harris discusses religious moderates and their dogmatic views in his article “The First Ten Pages.” Harris argues that they are the “instability” in our society because moderates believe in something without having factual evidence to prove it.
I used the bible passage from the bible (Job 17:9) to relate to Winton’s occasional references to religion. In the short story ‘Holding’, the protagonist is sceptical of religion but understands that it helps other people in their lives, and in ‘More’, Jerra discovers that his dad became religious to help himself through any tough times. My character is quite annoyed by religion but he still draws strength from the passage I stated earlier despite his scepticism. Will experiences difficulties similar to that of Winton’s characters. His life is controlled by traumatic events from his past.
Oscar Cruz Jr. Cruz 1 BG Guttierez ENGL 2327 23 February, 2012 Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God In the story Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God in holds a sermon on how your life should be led to with several techniques he tries to grab your attention with his grace and how you would go to heaven. Not everybody believes in god but in my point of view I believe that with the will of the lord everything is possible. Jonathan Edwards throughout the readings tried to scare the readers on how god can do things to people or grasp their life in any part of their time. It shouldn’t be understood in that way because in the bible I reads that god will come for you at the time he is ready. There is no need to be scared to go to heaven because heaven is a better and more peaceful place.

Most kids go not for learning about the Bible, and God, but go just to be with friends. In the book, the main point where religious hypocrisy is displayed was when the Grangerfords went to church with their guns, listened to the sermon on brotherly love, and then talked about how good of a sermon it was. “It was pretty ornery preaching – all about brotherly love, and such-like tiresomeness; but everybody said it was a good sermon, and they all talked it over going
Christianity is faced with abortion because God doesn't make mistakes, but humans do. Other religions face the challenges of wanting to step out of their culture and seek the lord. Christians are also faced with many questions on how we know if God is real or not. Lastly, Christians would say that Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship and every non believer/belief believe that it is a religion. This movie takes the viewers through many challenges that young Christians face in society.
This is not so in other religions. Such religions as Hinduism for instance do not believe this. For everything you do wrong you will be punished. Christianity is slowly evolving and trying to become even more appealing to society, there are still many downfalls. Todays society is steadly envolving and the views on how the Universe works today is a total different story on how people thought it worked back then.
Johnny Finns November 5, 2009 Conservatives Beliefs Conservatives are much less confident of human reason and experience than are liberals. They ground their theology primarily in scripture and the teachings of the church, especially the early church. Conservatives tend to stress the transcendence of God more than the other two groups and are much more resistant to change in theology or ethics.

writes, "The church's singular failure in recent decades has been the failure to see Christianity as a life system, or worldview, that III governs every area of existence.” He goes on to say that “our failure to see Christianity as a comprehensive framework of truth has crippled our efforts to have a redemptive effect on the surrounding culture. At its most fundamental level, the culture war is a clash of belief systems…Only when we see this can we effectively evangelize a post-Christian culture, bringing God's righteousness to bear in the world around us.” As a nation, we no longer accept the truths that our predecessors did. Instead, what we have today is moral relativism, and there is no right or wrong, no good or evil. Moral relativism teaches that we are all products of the evolutionary process, there is no God and no plan or purpose for our lives, and we all have our own truth. It teaches that we are all basically
