  • Religion helps in some way to map a course through life's obstacles and limitations of human existence.

    Further reading see: Morrisey.J, Mudge.P, Taylor. A, Bailey.G, Rule. P (2007). Living Religion, 3rd ed. Pearson Education, Sydney.


2 types of religious world views

2 types of Religious World Views

It is possible to distinguish 2 types of religious world views:

  • Believe in a divine power and /or powers beyond human dimension e.g. Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Followers believe in the One God who exists beyond the human and yet guides humanity through everyday existence.

  • Believe in a divine being or powers dwelling in the individual e.g. Buddhism and Hinduism (grasped by an ultimate concern).

    Read chapters 1 and 2 of text


Questions religion attempts to answer why

Questions Religion Attempts to Answer & Why

Religion attempts to answer the following questions for their believers:

  • Is there a supreme being?

  • Who am I?

  • Why is there evil pain and suffering?

  • Is there life after death?

    Morrisey.J, Mudge.P, Taylor. A, Bailey.G, Rule. P (2007). Living Religion, 3rd ed. Pearson Education, Sydney.


Year 11 sor sem 1

  • Is there a supreme being?

    • God or deity is the name given to a god/goddess depending on the religion being studied

    • In Christianity, Jewish and Islamic traditions the “Deity” refers to the monotheistic God (one god alone see further readings).

    • It is the understood source and creator of the universe, the source of all that exists, the ultimate ruler of all time and space.

      Morrisey.J, Mudge.P, Taylor. A, Bailey.G, Rule. P (2007). Living Religion, 3rd ed. Pearson Education, Sydney.


Year 11 sor sem 1

  • Who am I?

    • Takes the individual to the heart of human existence

    • For Christianity it is understood in relation to what is human nature and what is the ultimate purpose

    • For other religions the human person gains their identity by relating to their God/s guided by their beliefs and the practices of their faith

      Morrisey.J, Mudge.P, Taylor. A, Bailey.G, Rule. P (2007). Living Religion, 3rd ed. Pearson Education, Sydney.


Year 11 sor sem 1

  • Why is there evil pain and suffering?

    • This question challenges believers of all faiths.

    • Evil is the opposite of good and the beneficial.

    • It can be understood as a cosmic power or a human way of behaving or deciding.

    • Evil, pain and suffering are interrelated.

    • Suffering can be understood as the experience of pain that could be caused by evil, ignorance or neglect.

    • Therefore this 3 part issue raises crucial questions for religion about the nature of God, of the universe and of human existence itself.

      Morrisey.J, Mudge.P, Taylor. A, Bailey.G, Rule. P (2007). Living Religion, 3rd ed. Pearson Education, Sydney.


Year 11 sor sem 1

  • Is there life after death?

    • Death normally means the ending of the ordinary human existence.

    • Issues and questions about origin of death, the destiny of the dead, and rituals for the dead are part of religious traditions.

    • The attitudes of death of the traditions do not relate to a scientific explanation rather an attempt to make sense of life to understand death as a pattern of life e.g. resurrection, reincarnation.

      Morrisey.J, Mudge.P, Taylor. A, Bailey.G, Rule. P (2007). Living Religion, 3rd ed. Pearson Education, Sydney.
