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.

Also when Jesus wants us to help others he doesn't just say it, he acts to his words and he showed us how to help someone, an example of this is the healing of blind bartimaues, he healed the sick to show the way that Christians should behave.

If you have enough money to share then do so because all of those in need, would be grateful off so little things to you, you do not have to give drastic amounts to help someone you just have to give as much as you can. In conclusion in Christianity, helping others in need is a duty not something they have to do but something they should do and want to, it is their responsibility to help those In need get what they deserve and I think that Jesus was a great role model to all Christians and he guided us on our way to help others and I think we should all be glad that he helped us were we are today. ?? ?? ?? ??
