Extracts from this document...

Introduction

'In a multi-faith society religious people should not try to convert followers of other religions' In order to understand this argument fully, we have to look at it from different perspectives. In a multi-faith society, everyone should have religious freedom, and there should be religious pluralism: all religions are accepted as having equal right to co-exist. ...read more.

Middle

Nonetheless by converting non-Christians, it implies that Christianity view other religions as inferior, which disrupts the idea of religious pluralism.

Conclusion

Nevertheless some Sikhs believe that only Sikhism has the whole truth.

  2. Is There A Decline In Religion...In Today's Society?

    TV rather than what religion or what the church has too say. Many writers have pointed out that secularisation has tended to be seen in terms of the decline of organised established churches in Western industrialised countries. However, if one looks at the world globally, then religion is as overwhelming and dominant a force as ever.

  1. Religious Pluralism.

    The twentieth-century rush for materialism and secular values also fanned an increase in "fundamentalism." Reactionaries do not want their values and life patterns to be spoiled by contemporary secular culture, which they thought to be crude and sacrilegious. They may try to withdraw socially from secular society even while surrounded by it.

  2. "Assess the view that religious language is meaningless."

    says that verification is just as meaningless as religious language in itself, as there is no way of verifying the statement "verification is true" on its own terms. At this point Wittgenstein returns with a completely different idea about language.

  1. Memoirs of our journey to acquire Religious freedom

    We all elected a spokesperson to persuade Captain William Sayle to became our leader. Preceding the persuasion of William Sayle we agreed to call our place of freedom Eleutheria. Today we set sail upon the high seas for the Bahamas.

    Other more religious people might not watch it, as it's simply not religious enough. A religious documentary I viewed was about arranged marriages. It was about an Asian boy whom his mum had arranged a bride for him back home in Pakistan.
