The World's Major Religions and Belief Systems
Unlike most belief systems that are less rigid in their external structures and may be transmitted orally from one generation to the next, whether by family members or by religious leaders within the community, religious beliefs are organized and codified, often based on the teachings and writings of one or more founders of virtually every society that has ever existed. While religious beliefs are of great importance to those who hold them, the less formalistic belief systems variously referred to as animist or tribal religions, and adhered to by peoples all over the world have proven somewhat enigmatic to Western minds. The scope of this listing, therefore, deals only with those religions that most Westerners have at least a peripheral acquaintance with, ones that employ certain readily identifiable tenets, beliefs, and doctrines.
Baha'i has more than 5 million followers (as of 1996). It was founded by Mirza Husayn 'Ali Nuri, who took the name Baha'u'llah (Glory of God) while in exile in Baghdad. Baha'u'llah's coming had been foretold by Mirza Ali Mohammad, known as al-Bab, who founded Babism in 1844, from which the Baha'i faith grew. The central tenets of the Baha'i faith are the oneness of God, the oneness of humanity, and the common foundation of all religion. Baha'ists also believe in the equality of men and women, universal education, world peace, and the creation of a world federal system of government.

    An Overview of the World's Religions
    It should be kept in mind at all times that no religion is monolithic. The summaries that follow are just that: summaries. Each religion has numberless sects and differences of opinion over doctrine, politics and just about anything one can think of. Therefore, understand that the summaries are merely guidelines, giving a general overview of the religion, describing what the majority of that religion's adherents would agree is part of that religion. For more in depth analysis, it is recommended that the reader check a library and examine the relilgious writings and descriptions of each religion in depth. High God Concept The term "High God" is used by historians and anthropologists to designate the supreme deity found in many polytheistic religions. How is this "High God" understood? He is usually described as being located somewhere beyond the sky; utterly transcendent, he is removed from the world that he originally created - hense the term "high". It is, to some extent, almost deistic in its concept. According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica , there is an African proverb that describes the High God as follows: "God is on high and man is below. God is god and man is man. Each is at home; each in his own house."

    Cape Town, South Africa * December 1 - 8, 1999
    ORDER BY CONFERENCE CODE: PWR99 "If the Parliament of Religions has shown anything to the world it is this:
    It has proved to the world that holiness, purity and charity are not the exclusive
    possessions of any church in the world, and that every system has produced
    men and women of the most exalted character. In the face of this evidence,
    if anybody dreams of the exclusive survival of his own religion
    and the destruction of the others, I pity him from the bottom of my heart,
    and point out to him that upon the banner of every religion will soon
    be written, in spite of resistance: 'Help and not Fight',
    'Assimilation and not Destruction', 'Harmony and Peace and not Dissension.'" Swami Vivekananada at the Final Session of the 1893 Parliament of Religions (Chicago) KEYNOTES AND PLENARY SESSIONS Wednesday Evening: Offering Sacred Practice This moving evening focuses on the theme of the Sacred Meal as a spiritual practice cherished in most of the world's spiritual traditions. Music, dance, storytelling will bring to life the power of ritual, liturgy, celebration and worship as modes of giving to one's own community and to others. Thursday Evening: Pursuing Universal Human Rights This evening will combine music, poetry, song and narrative in a powerful expression of the continuing struggle for human rights. Fittingly, the presentation will have a strong South African focus. (This Plenary Session has been designed by friends of the Parliament in Gauteng.)

    Religions of the World African Religions and Their Derivatives
    African and African-Derivative Religions
    are a large group of beliefs and practices based upon ancient indigenous faiths of sub-Saharan African peoples. Within the last 100 years in Africa (see Table of Statistics ) indigenous religion has declined under the influence of colonialism, Western acculturation and proselytizing by Islam and Christianity. In the African Diaspora (mainly in the Americas) African-derived belief systems are in a state of impressive growth. ithin just the last two years the amount of information made available through the Internet is also impressive. Some of the best information comes to us from Italy, Sweden and Brazil. We are no longer dependent upon reports from academia or encyclopedias. There are now numerous websites maintained by the faithful themselves and, while the quality and quantity of information varies enormously among them, one may now hear from practitioners their own statements of faith. In many, if not most, cases African spirituality has evolved in the Americas. Ancient practices brought westward by slaves became syncretized, more or less, with religious traditions of the slaves' masters. This syncretization is most noticeable in areas dominated by the Catholic faith and where the celebration of saints, votive offerings and other practices found parallels in ancient traditions.

    By Staff

    With just 20 questions, our goal is to provide a fun and informative activity to explore world religions and belief systems. We've included a sampling of more than two dozen world world religions, belief systems, or belief categories. When doctrine wasn't available to describe a belief system's positions, we looked at the predominant views of its followers. For detailed information, visit the descriptions pages which are linked from each result. We strive to be accurate. To that end, please share your comments about your results in our Religion Forum.

  • INSTRUCTIONS: For each section, check the position (or positions) that MOST CLOSELY reflects the one(s) you wish to include in your exploration. IMPORTANT: Note that some answers include more than one view separated by the word "or," for example "God (or Christ)...." It is an appropriate answer if you agree with just one option within a choice.

    Utah State Prison inmate Phillip Leishman wants his runes back. And, no matter what prison officials think of his religion, his argument should be heard. The runes are 24 small pieces of wood carved with ancient mystical symbols. Leishman says he needs them in order to practice his religion the ancient Celtic order of Asatru with its little-understood pagan rituals.

I have searched the internet inside and out to find any information on this religion and have had no luck. They are a secret men's society and it originates back to Africa, I do know that much. But I would like to know how one becomes part of the religion, the basic history, what the religion worships. Things like that. I do know a few words related such as arara...possibly a saint nanigo are "priests" that are higher up...and naniguismo. Beyond that I am stuck and frustrated. Would you be able to find ANY information on this for me?

    118. Western Religions In Mr. Dowling's Electronic Passport
    Briefly compares Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
    HOME TIME AND SPACE PREHISTORY MESOPOTAMIA ... Islam Understanding Others We study different religious faiths in order to understand other people. Many people have strong religious convictions, and it would be impossible to understand them without first understanding their faith. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are monotheistic faiths practiced by about half of the world's population. Monotheism refers to the belief in one God. The faiths are often called western religions to distinguish them from the eastern religions practiced primarily in Asia. Believers in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are found on every continent, but tend to be concentrated in North and South America, Europe, Australia, Western Asia and North Africa. Christianity and Islam are growing influences in sub-Saharan Africa, often replacing indigenous faiths. While western religions are centered on the belief in one God, many believers of eastern religions seek to find enlightenment by looking within themselves. Hinduism and Buddhism are popular faiths in India and Southeast Asia. Since becoming a communist nation in 1949, China has discouraged religion. Many Chinese practice the teachings of Confucius, which is a political movement rather than a religious faith. Taoism is another philosophy centered in China. Shinto is the religious faith of many Japanese people.

    119. Summary Of Native American Religions

    A Summary of Native American Religions
    by David Ruvolo
    The history of American religions is dominated by the presence of Christianity brought to the New World by European settlers. Columbus's discovery in 1492 marked the beginning of a massive "white" invasion that would consume the entire continent of North America over the next four centuries. Although Christianity manifested itself in countless denominations, it was, nevertheless, the umbrella under which most Europeans in America gathered. It served as common ground on which white settlers could stand together in the struggle for survival in the wilderness of the New World. Whatever differences there were between denominations were insignificant when compared to the differences between the white European Christianity and their counterparts on the continent, the resident Native Americans. This fact, along with the desire and need for land, turned Native Americans into a convenient enemy for most groups of European settlers.
    In essence, time had run out for the indigenous race that populated the continent of North America. Like the Israelites of the sixth century B.C.E., Native Americans were faced with an enemy that was more advanced. Ironically, the invading whites are the religious descendants of those same Israelites who were conquered by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.E.. Armed with technologically advanced weapons, diseases which were foreign to the continent, and a concept known as Manifest Destiny, European settlers began an assault on the North American Continent the result of which was nothing short of genocide. Within four hundred years of their first contact, the white man had succeeded in stripping Native American civilizations of virtually all of their land and had nearly wiped their cultures from the face of the earth.
