Question
dq 1

The Faces of God (graded)

Hinduism offers as one explanation for its many gods that humans need concrete representations of the formless absolute. Also, finite minds can perceive the infinite only in a limited way, according to taste and temperament, cultural background, and other factors. Religions such as Christianity or Judaism view God in carefully defined ways that restrict the names and personality that reflect the divine. Yet even here, the way that God is pictured varies. Reflect on the images you have had of the divine, and interview friends about images they have had. How have these pictures in your mind changed since you were a child? Is it possible they will continue to change as you age or as you study religion more deeply? How do you account for this process, and how would you attempt to measure the correctness of one image over another?


dq 2

Jainism and Ahimsa (graded)

Jainism has five ethical principles, the first of which is ahimsa, or, nonviolence towards all living creatures. Some Jains sweep the ground in front of them to avoid killing small insects. Jains are also strict vegetarians, and some reject the use of any animal products such as leather and jewelry. Do you think this kind of ethic is reasonable for all people or only a minority? Argue the case for or against such strict principles.

I'm not sure what I would have done in the first 2 occasions, but in the 3rd I would have ran too. According to Molloy, "devotion to animals in Hinduism has several possible origins: an ancient deification of powerful animals, such as the elephant and tiger; the desire to neutralize dangerous or mischievous animals, such as the snake, rat, and monkey; and even a sense that human beings and animals have the same origin (a belief also common in native religions). Belief in reincarnation has undoubtedly also played a role. When they see animals and insects, many Hindus see prehuman beings who, in their spiritual evolution, will eventually become human themselves. This brings a feeling of closeness to nonhuman forms of animal life." (2010, p 105) The cow is given respect because it is "a symbol of fertility and economic value." (Molloy, 2010, p 105)ReferenceMolloy, M. (2010). Experiencing the World's Religions, 5th Edition. [VitalSource Bookshelf Online].

I would like to say that if reincarnation really exists, then most people have to imprisoned for life for all the chickens, fish, and cow and lamb meat already eaten just because they could be human beings. That is really interesting.VeronicaHi Melissa, That makes perfect sense now that I read your post about reincarnati… Collapse Mark as ReadRE:The Faces of GodSherryon Sterling Email this Author11/2/2016 8:13:44 PMVeronica,I can understand your interest in your friends religion.
