"There is more to religion than just just belief. For Instance, religion and religious organisations may help groups to cope with changes such as migration and adjustment to new societies. For some religion provide the whole basis on which their lives are structured" To what extent so sociological arguments and evidence support this veiw of the relationship between religious beliefs, religious organisations and social groups? In society religion is seen to bring different principles to different people. Many groups see religion as being a factor of shaping the community and to what religon actually brings to socitey is agued among different theories. Firstly Marxist being tha conflict theory seen religion as have ideological control over a group of people, which gives them hope to all evil in society. Functionalist argue that religion hold the socitey together creating social solidarity. Feminists belive that religion encorages patriarchy so asystem where society is beneficial to men. Interpretivists believe that we are social actors and religion makes us do certian rituals and commit to certain symbols(i.e Christians looking to the cross). ...read more.


He stated ' The notion of the church derives its force from the growth of Christianity and the historic forms of Catholic, Orthodox and Coptic churches'. In 1517a german preist, Martain Luther began to question teachigns from practises in medieval church and after making his point, there became this reformation where more religious groups began to question the church and where the Protestant Church was first established. Thefore Steve Bruce believes that this historical phenomena cant continue to exist in modern day society. So when focusing back to the main question it can be seen that religion does help people in different ways and now there is increasing more critisms of the Church Of England as people are lokin for more modern day changes. Ronald Robertson (1987) also argued that throughtout the world there has been an increase in church-state tensions. He points out that many churches are transnational organizations and so there activities are not confined to a single country. He also argues that in the modern 'world system' people of differnt rationalities interact with one another on a non religious intrests. ...read more.


Marxist wuld say this has been a results of people rebelling against the Church and soo increasinly moving away to forn denominations to better fit their beliefs. Steve bruce agreed as he stated that denominations are 'increasingly important'. Functionalists do not agree with denominatios as it changes society and these changes may eventually break down the way society operates. Sects are more radical protest movements set up in opposition to a dominant mainstream religion and generally critical of the state. They demand high levels of commitment. Offer support and alternative way of life and lack complex hierarchy. In 1995 Bruce stated 'From time to time the church would face dissent or revolt. People would protests against ecclesiastic pomp and wealth or would seek to live out a more radical form of faith. Those who could not be contained within the church broke away to form a sect. As they often challenged the state as much as the church, they were met with repression. For this, if for no other reason, sects were normally small' Examples of sects are People's Temple led by Jim Jones, Branch Davidians led by David Koresh and The Bob Jones University. There are 3 main reasons for why sects have increased and how sects become more appealing. ...read more.

    First of all, looking back to the procedure, we are going to find any possible errors that could have affected our numerical answers. These errors could have relation to: - Weighing and transferring the solid (Na2CO3) - Having the material not contaminated - Having the right amount of everything -

  2. effects Concentration and Temperature on the Rate of Reaction

    I have shown below how to work out the RFM of a compound, using 'X' and 'Y' as elements, with 'n' and 'm' as their respective molecular masses: X2Y3: X2 = 2 x n = 2n Y3 = 3 x m = 3m = 2n3m g/mole Therefore, a 1M solution

    The interaction of aqueous solution of iron(III) chloride and the complex with the above added reagents was compared. Results: Mass of ammonium iron(II) sulphate used= 10.53g Mass of diluted sulphuric acid used=5.08g Mass of potassium oxalate monohydrate used = 7.49g Mass of oxalic acid dihydrate used= 2.503g Mass of

  1. Titrations in Modern Industrial Laboratories

    can get practise in for getting the results accurate and it saves time doing it before doing the titration. Titration is carried out differently in industry, in hospitals as they titrate by hand, as it may be more accurate; however there is a cause for human error.

  2. The Effects of Strong and Weak Acids on the Order of a Reaction.

    This equation can also be written as: ln (rate) = ln (A) -(Ea / RT) ln, being the natural log of the number. Using the natural log makes the question far easier to use. To work out the activation energy, one can substitute the equation above and write it as:

  1. Finding Out how much Acid there is in a Solution

    I will add four drops of methyl orange indicator to this and place it under the burette, on a white tile to make it easier to see the colour change.

  2. An investigation into the ability of metals to protect iron from rusting

    Therefore if a piece of iron placed in the indicator rusts, a blue colour will appear. If nothing happens, there will be no colour change. If the coating is oxidised, the mixture will turn pink (as the coating's electrons will react with water and oxygen to produce hydroxyl ions, but no iron(III)
