World Religions WebQuest A WebQuest for 9th Grade Modern World History Designed by Mrs. M. Ruland
Task Process Evaluation ... Credits
Introduction In Modern World History, we strive to understand why events have happened so that we can better understand our present and the future. One of the the most important factors to help explain why people react in certain ways is religion. Throughout history, belief in a certain religion has effect the political, social, economic, and intellectual life of the belivers. You are continuing your work for the Ruland Time Traveling Detective Agency by creating a reference chart about some of the world's major religions. This webQuest was designed before the tragic events on September 11, 2001. Throughout history, many evils have been done in the name of religion. That does not mean the the religion or the majority of believers support those actions. In this time of grief and anger, it is important to learn what these religions really teach; the message of love, peace, and harmony are usually the central focus.
The Task You are continuing your work for the Ruland Time Traveling Detective Agency. Your detectives need a clear reference chart that will give them some basic information about Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. You will be creating that chart. In creating your chart, you will also be determining which WWW sites are more helpful and accurate. You will also have to record basic bibliographic information for each site you decide to use.

world religions WAR AND PEACE. What follows is a very brief summary of what the world’s major religions say about war and peace.

just war



understanding conflict
Many wars have been fought with religion as their stated cause, and with peace as their hoped-for end. A summary can only give a very limited picture. But it can open a door to understanding the links between religion and war. 1. War: wrong, just or holy? Put simply, there are three possible views of war that a religion might adopt. The pacifist view: all violence and killing is wrong. Belief in 'a Just War': some wars, at least, are right because they are perceived to be in the interests of justice - and should therefore be fought according to just rules. Belief in 'Holy War': the God of a religion is perceived to ask, or command, its followers to make war on those who do not believe in that religion and who pose a threat to those who do. 2. Supporting non-violence Three major world religons have their roots in India: Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism. Buddhism and Sikhism both grew from Hinduism. All three share the idea of non-violence (ahimsa). Hinduism Hinduism is perhaps the oldest world religion; in some of its writings ahimsa has been considered the highest duty from the beginning of time. Jainism also grew out of Hinduism; Jainists believe that people should strive to become detached from the distractions of worldly existence; and that the practice of ahimsa is an essential step on the way to personal salvation.

We will happily mail you a CD at cost anywhere on the planet! Our purpose in giving away Ocean is to promote amity among religions through greater understanding. It is our belief that the actual teachings of the various religions are not so different as some people would have us believe. True, religions have been used by power-hungry leaders as a tool to divide people. But eventually people will get tired of formulaes of hate and begin to ask "what do the scriptures really say <a href=""><img src="" border=0 alt="Ocean, a Free Software Library of the World's Religious Literature"></a> What they will find is shocking: the core message of all the world's religious writings are the same: ethical integrity, honesty, sincerity, compassion, tolerance and non-violence. No kidding! It's hard to accept this in a world filled with "religious" bigotry and hatred but just look for yourself!

Long Name Christians Nonreligious Jews Muslims Buddhists Atheists Hindus Chinese folk-religionists Baha'is New-Religionists Sikhs Ethnoreligionists Spiritists Shintoists Taoists Jains Parsees Christianity is the largest professed religion in the region, with 241 million members in AD 1990 growing to 262 million by the year 2000. However, its size hides its slow decline. Although Christianity adds 2.2 million members annually through births to Christian households, it also loses 164,700 members through defections to other faiths. Its net growth rate of 0.8%slightly under the region's population growth ratemeans it is losing its share of the total population. Not all Christian traditions are in decline. Roman Catholics are growing both through births and conversions, thus increasing their share of the population. Independent and Non-white indigenous churches, growing at 1.6% per year, are outstripping the population growth rate at a healthy margin; they are adding nearly half a million members through conversion alone. Marginal churches are growing at 1.7%, adding 94,000 yearly through conversion and the balance through birth. Unfortunately, Protestants are in serious decline, losing 1 member through defection for every 2 gained through births. There are some bright spots especially among the trans-tradition groupings. Evangelicals (those who are part of mainline traditional Evangelical denominations) are growing at 1.12%, adding 202,000 through conversion and 822,000 through births yearly. Pentecostals are the second-fastest growing bloc in North American Christianity, at 1.3% each year. Great Commission Christians (those interested in mission and evangelism) are growing at 1.06%, adding 123,000 members through conversion each year. Even so, they comprise just 25% of the populationfar less than Christianity’s total 85%.

    What's the difference between
    Jesus and world religions?
    Email article to a friend Let's take a brief look at some of the major aspects of Jesus Christ, which stand in stark contrast to what's in the world's religions.
  • God pursues a relationship with us. Have you ever been in a relationship where you were always the one who was initiating? They are tiresome and usually don't last very long. Best friends are the ones who enjoy each other so much that they invest their time equally in pursuit of that relationship. Unlike religions that try to reach their God, with Christ you see God reaching out to us. Jesus Christ said why he came: "that you might have life, and have it more abundantly." He came to give us an eternal life with him, for those who will believe in him.
    Jesus claimed to be God. No world religion's key figure claimed to be God.
    Jesus lived a perfect life and showed his deity in the miracles he performed...healing the blind, quieting a violent storm at sea, raising people from the dead, instantly providing food for thousands of people. World religions have leaders who gave interesting messages, but none of them showed their miraculous power like Jesus did. Jesus said, "Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves."
  • 80. World Religions
    14. world religions AND SPIRITUALITY. CHRISTIANITY. 6. Buddhism is the world s fourth largest major religion behind Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism.

    1. Christianity teaches that there is one God (united into a Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) who is sovereign over all human affairs. 2. Christian beliefs are contained in the Bible , consisting of 66 books written by predominately Hebrew authors inspired by God over a 3000 year period. 3. The Bible is divided into 2 major sections: A. The Old Testament contains the history of the beginning of the world and mankind; the history of the Hebrew people (chosen by God to reveal his nature and plan for mankind) and plans for mankind's future. The Old Testament is also accepted as holy scripture by the Jewish religion. B. The New Testament , the much shorter part of the Bible, tells of the life and death
    of Jesus and contains the doctrines of the Christian church. 4. Biblical Christianity teaches that everyone is born with a sin nature that separates them from God. Rather than reject people because of their imperfect nature, God sent his son Jesus into the world (through birth to a virgin miraculously impregnated by God's Holy Spirit) to reveal the nature of God and his Kingdom, to model a perfect life free of sin, and to atone for sin by sacrificing his life through crucifixion on a cross.
