Extracts from this document...


Religious Studies - Coursework Explain what Christians believe about their responsibility for other people: Christians believe that they are responsible for what happens to others in this day, if someone is hurt they know it is their duty to help them. That is true Christianity. They looked up to Jesus and saw what he did. He was, and still is a role model to Christians today. He encourages us to help those in need.
