PostSubject: How Religions Establish their Beliefs and Change them Over Time!   Tue May 20, 2008 4:00 pm

About establishing and changing beliefs:

Speaking generally, religious beliefs are often established at the denominational, congregational and individual level on the basis of four factors:


What do the scriptures say, as interpreted by the group or person?

What have the faith group's historical policies been?

What does one's personal experience say?

What does reason and scientific knowledge say?


Conservative wings pf Christianity tend to more heavily weigh the first two factors; the liberal and progressive wing tend to give more importance to the last two factors. A similar process is seen in other world religions.

Too often, these four factors lead to conclusions that are not in agreement. Unfortunately, many faith groups do not have mechanisms to handle change well without angry debate, schism and even violence.

This section will describe how religious groups have handled or are handling change. Most essays linked to this menu deal with three examples of changes -- relating to human slavery, the status of women, and the rights of homosexuals and bisexuals. These are arguably the main conflicts in the 19th, 20th and 21st century to date. They are also useful to study because the first is largely settled (although the negative effects of slavery will be with us for generations); the second is partly settled; and the third is in full swing.

this factors would be a hot debate if there topic was "how could science explains existance and how does spiritual concept has to say..."

the reason why the first was fully istablish was because human slavery are the often result of greediness and un-human(religiosly explained) and so as science explained this was happened due to through history untill now human slavery is an event were human corrupt minds are fully develop that they could not treat every species with the right's to live(more with pro life explained)

the status of woman was already seetle for my thought since woman nowadays has the right's, like what we have mens has, hence; are right to work for the family, and so as the right govern.

the right of homosexuals and bisexuals; this was already been in hot debates since the arguements started on part of united states were two male married establish, (religiosly this was against God will) (scientificaly this factor could does not meant for qualification in order for human race to continue lol! Rolling on the Floor )
