  1. Describe Christian teachings about the way believers should treat people less fortunate than themselves.

    Many Christians believe in the agape love- the unconditional love; which teaches respect, for others, understanding and mercy. "Speak up and judge fairly; defend the right of the poor and needy". When following this teaching, many Christians would put themselves into poorer shoes and treat them the way that they would want to be treated, with respect, understanding and equality. Christians believe that if they'll ignore a poor brother or sister, they will be faced with doubts on how they can morally live with their conscience. "What use is it my brothers, for a man to say that he has faith, if he does nothing?

    While in Trenton, she was informed that her Relations were Quakers, which caused her to have second thoughts about her arrival, and contemplate turning back. After thinking things over for a moment, she decided that "God brings unforeseen things to Pass," and continued on until she reached her destination. (654). Shortly after meeting with her Aunt, she began to read over the Quakers' book, and immediately stated "my heart burned within me and Tears Issued from my Eyes." (654). The words she saw her just too touching for her to handle.

  3. The Quakers

    The rigid adherence in the l8th century to a particular form of "plain dress" (e.g. no lapels or buttons) did not survive the l9th. Only the "plain speech", noticeably the use of 'thee' and 'thou' and of numbers for the days of the week and for the months continued into the present century.

    they believe actions are not necessary and everything comes from your heart. The room had six sides this had no spiritual meaning; it was so each speaker could be heard in the room as they believe in equal rights. There was a table in the centre of the room containing various books, including the Bible, Quakers Faith & Practice, Structure of Friends, and Advices & Queries. The table was not called an Altar. The Meeting House didn't have any icons, symbols or even a crucifix. This was because Quakers believe in simplicity and are against wealth and corruption.

  5. Quaker worship is very different from the worship of most Christian churches

    One, Christ is not just a holy figure from the past; He is present with us today. Second, a Christian is someone who has gone from death to life in an encounter with Jesus. Third, the Church is not just a building but a community of believers who are inspired by Christ. Fourth, Priests are not just intelligent human beings but people inspired by Christ to bring Christ into others lives. These four beliefs became the basis of the Quaker religion in 1647, founded by George Fox. Quaker worship is very different from the worship of most Christian churches.
