Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Today many religious and political leaders start talking about religious pluralism: to hold one’ own faith and at the same time ask people of other faiths about their path, about how they want to be understood, underlining tolerance and interreligious dialogue as the only possible solution in our “global village”. Please post your answers on the following questions and comment on at least one of your classmates’ posts. Please write about 5-7 thoughtful sentences on each question. These questions will be open for discussion for the current week only, the cut off time is Sunday midnight.Please watch Pope Francis’s presentation Why the only future worth building incudes everyone ( Lm14); what ideas expressed in the video do you find worth remembering and why?
Three monotheistic faiths – one God – we are all connected and live in the same world. Why do we fight?
Do you think religion (s) can be studied objectively without trying to persuade? Why?
here is my classmate work her name is Samantha She 1. In the TED talk of Pope Francis he talked about thinking to himself “why them, not me”. When he would see immigrants suffering when he himself is an immigrant from Argentina. This stood out to me because being an immigrant I am very fortunate to have the things I have. To be able to buy things for school and for me, to have a roof over my head and to eat every day. Going back to my home country for a summer reminded me of how lucky I am to be able to move to Canada and live a new life. I also had times where I thought about why they had to suffer and I got to live a better life. This applies to my uncle and my grandparents living in my home country. Looking at my life compared to theirs it makes me wonder why they can’t live the same life as I am living. Another idea Pope Francis brought up was how the world revolves around money and material things rather than people. He mentions how there is this habit where people call others “respectable” for not caring for others and this stood out cause i don’t agree with this. I never realized this until the Pope brought it up. People should not refer to those that leave others behind as “respectable”, personally I would rather call someone who is not that well known but helps others respectable than those that are famous just because they have fame.2. Despite living in the same world and being connected through one God, arguments still occur due to varying beliefs that are taught in each of the 3 monotheistic religions. Regardless of being connected and having only one God each religions sacred scripture differs in what it says. There will be similarities but there will also be differences especially when it is translated. There are also differences in beliefs Christianity, Islam and Judaism have differences in their beliefs like the concept of sin. In Judaism, everyone is born innocent and is able to sin, in Christianity everyone is born with sins because of the original sin, and in Islam sin is seen as disobeying Gods will. Each of these regions thinks that their view is right but what is right and what should be followed differs from what religion they associate with. This is where fights come from, it comes from individuals arguing their beliefs and what should be practised and what will get us to the religious end goal.3. I don’t think that religions can be studied objectively. This is because of what each person’s beliefs are without religion. Each person has their own set of moral beliefs they have learned from parents or from what they have heard in school or from other people. I believe that religion is subjective to each person and what they think is right is based on what they feel is right and what they think is right. For example. there are individuals who are Christian that convert to Judaism or Islam after learning what the other 2 believe in because they agree more with the teachings of Judaism or Islam more than they agree with the teachings of Christianity and vice-versa. Religion can not be studied objectively without being persuaded purely because of what each person believes in. It can be studied but a person would have a more liked religion compared to the other regions they have learnedhere’s the class material This week we are going to examine the interrelationships between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. As we learned during the course, the interactions of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities have been challenging and sometimes violent over past several centuries. Scholars point out that there are many differences in cultural and historical viewpoints as well as in political decisions that may trigger the tension between people that worship the one God. It is about time to discuss the essential and critical issues in each tradition in order to realize the profound sense of responsibility towards the same one God, the earth and humanity we all have to share.Judaism, Christianity and Islam, three great religious traditions, each proclaiming the one and only God, creator of heaven and earth. To comprehend the three faiths, three communities of believers with their own ideology, history and traditions is not an easy task. However, mutual understanding and respect are the key to the future peaceful coexistence in our global community. Watch VideoPlease compare the main concepts of Judaism, Christianity and Islam presented in this short video. The video is without subtitles and is optional.As we already know, no single religion dominates the world. Today we live in new geo- religious reality when religions have shifted from their country of origin. We have been learning that people of different religions may relate to each other in different ways. All religions teach the importance of setting one’s own selfish interest aside, loving others, and exercising control over the mind. The UN General Assembly unanimously passed the resolution to recognize the World Interfaith Harmony Week annually during the first week of February.For the first time the World Interfaith Harmony week was held in February 2011.Watch Video
