As we know, there are many Religions around the world all carrier
difference set of Church Covenent, but we must relize that there is only
one true covenent and it the covenent our four father Abraham made
with God. In this essay i intend to share my view own how one shall
preceive these view and turn them into steping stone instead of stumble
block. In addition, learn how to love the moment we have to share with
our brothers in the gospel, their religion their belief, and faith and learn
from one another. To do God will
1. In 1966 a famous patriot wrote the heresy of individualism, and
religious Ethnocentrism. And asserting himself as a complete self-sufficient
unit my thought are that one cannot stand alone, but it take a body of
difference element to operate or to function and christ is made up of a
body and we are his element each of us have a part to play so every one
must fine what part he or she plays in this body. and everyone cannot be
on the same shelf from A-Z, in Merton word he speak of having to deal
with all the difference religion group and we need these group in order for
us to grow. the knowledge of the Muslims, the Hindus, Buddhist, Judaism,
Zoroastrianism, they all have their porpose we must allow them to serve
their porpose as they allow us to in our religion journey. and learn how to
separate what is the rightfully truth and ask God to help us do the
separation. God promise he would do the seperation he said let the tare
grow with the wheat. So we must growth with all God creation in mind
and be faithful and trust in him.
2. As it is said no matter what religion you are it about faith and belief
but to discover them in my self. would be hard to say yes. the task seem
hard unthinkable I feel I want to block all of this out and separate as Merton speak of
and be a unit against all, but in order for one to grow, one should share in other ways of

Enrichment not so sure. But if put in the situation. will take advantage and
enhances my ability to go futher in life to reach my goals. My feeling toward
the shared task is not pleasant at all I think God forbid for he is a jealous
God, King James Version in the book of Genesis God destroyed a whole
nation. Because of their sin and belief and save just one family. The family
on Noah. In the book of Exodus where he save his people again and bring
them out of bondage to serve him and forbid them to serve others God. And
the people kept on living the way they were and God warned them threw
mosses. And God destroyed half of them because of their disobient. And
God gave mosses the command and told them. thy shall have no other God
before Him. The first and the third command clearly state Thou shall have
no other God. The Third thou shalt not bow down thyself to them nor serve
them. For I the lord is a Jealous God. To me that make it very hard to
compromise with other religion belief. But I must say from what I have read
it is very interesting studies. About these different Religion.

B. I have read about Zoroastrianism, since I was reading our assignments by Hopfe. In
reading about Zoroastrianism I realized that this religion has the same view and beliefs of
all religions. The story in our reading sounds like other story of King James version, just
the names are changed. Zoroastrianism practices sound the same as the practices that are
in the scriptures. Their morals and ethics are the same that are in the scriptures My view
on religion is still the same and that is we serve the same God, these religions "lack
salvation" if these religion lack salvation, how we and them serve the same God? Which
gods or God are you relating too? How do we think they got these ethics and morals? All
of their so-called ethic/morals came from the Most High God. Moses and the rest had
reported what 'thus said the Lord" Just like today, we can learn from their mistakes and
negligence. Isaiah. 47:1-15; its truth tell about enchantment, sorceries, astrologers,
stargazers, "labor in this mischief; none shall save thee. Zoroaster and all the religions in
their time and our, Why do we think, that this hardship will not befall us. Isaiah writes
about Judah and Israel, Both are criticized for calling on God's name "but refusing to live
by His laws (Isa.48:1). This more evidence, they refuse, to call God name, but their gods.
In addition, all religions have some of the same practices and some that are different. One
thing is a fact and that is we all believe that there is eternal life after death “for sure!
There is a "spiritual sleep" and eternal life. When a Christian died, they are literal "sleep"
and the ones is not in Christ, meet death. somebody "is not going to make it" especially in
wind, stones, trees, stars, soothsayer, sorceries. None of these religions cannot give
eternal life. Jesus said, "You cannot do nothing without me" and that is a promise with
Truth. You are for me or against me there is no two ways. Either love the one and hate
the other. Rev; 2, 14 , because thou has there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam who
taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat thing sacrificed
unto idols and to commit fornication. Repent; or else I come unto the quickly. And will
fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
One is to performed in a natural cycle rather than past or present. Let one ask/ what is a
normal cycle? changing your way of life, after been raise up being what you are,
believing God is a spirit, and he is Jehovah, this is my belief and I come to fur to change.
He that has ears let him listen to what the spirit says to churchs. and let him rightly
divided the truth. For it is his own salvation at hands.
