please read instructions** My faith and beliefs in GOD are sacred Give examples of what is sacred in your life. Give examples of sacred not mentioned in the book. Why are those people/places/things sacred? Remember, just because something is “special” to you, or important to you, does not mean that it’s sacred. There is a unique definition for sacred. To be sacred, a person/place/thing has to meet a specific criteria. Is there actual power in the sacred places/objects, or is it just a matter of faith/superstition/ psychology? Don’t just rehash what we talked about last week. And use the readings […]

hat myths are you familiar with? What are some modern myths? What myths affect/impact your life? (Now if you choose to answer one of these, make sure you understand what we mean by “myth!” It does not mean a fairy tale like the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus. You need to make sure you read the chapter and understand that. If you write your paper and talk about a fairy tale as a myth, you will not get a good grade.) What role does the Bible play in Christianity? What is your story??? What role does art play in your […]
You are asked to write about yourself in this first paper. It is about your spiritual or religious journey. You are free to compose a paper that chronicles your path on a particular religion.

From the time of the Roman Empire, Christianity has identified in some fashion with culture. But that can pose a danger. De Gruchy, 63, for example, talks about this as a form of “cultural Christianity,” in which Christianity can be “reduced to middle-class morality…incapable of responding to the eschatological apocalypse unfolding (62).” This, in turn, has the potential of creating a “kairos moment” (see xxiii and 41). Do we live in such a time and is there a potential that the use of religion can become dangerous? Use The Atlantic article, “How Religion Made a Global Comeback in 2017” as […]
