Introduction

A03: "Pilgrimages are a waste of time - it would be better to spend this time and money helping others" Do you agree? Pilgrimage is a journey to a distant place of worship or a holy place. It is normally to a place where religious miracles and abnormalities have happened relevant to the pilgrim's beliefs. In the past pilgrimages used to be a long and dangerous road into the unknown which was a great test in a person's faith. Pilgrims used to travel by foot to make the experience more challenging and now many travel by train, air or another means of modern transport. This costs a lot of money and takes up much time in a person's life. ...read more.

This shows how people should put others before themselves and not just help themselves. . In the bible there's a passage in the book of Micah 6:8 it says "what shall I bring to the lord the god what shall I bring offerings to him? Sacrifices? No what the lord wants" which shows how God doesn't need everything you give him he just wants you and your helpfulness. If you put others before yourself and give more to charity you are more acceptable to God and therefore more likely to be lucky on judgement day. This shows that people agree with this statement and think it will make their bond with God stronger if you just help others in your own private way. ...read more.

Conclusion

In conclusion I do not agree with the knowledge because I feel that it is your decision if you want to go on pilgrimage or not. If u don't want to it is up to you and just because personally pilgrimage isn't my thing if someone wants to go on it so be it. If you feel God is calling you to do that then go forth and attend his call. It's like some people find their calling from god as playing football and others find it going on pilgrimage, but no matter what you chose to do God will accept you. I don't think everyone should be made to go on pilgrimage but I think the challenge of surviving free will and wanting to go break rules needs to be succeeded by the chosen pilgrim. ?? ?? ?? ??
