- Religious Texts: Christian and Islamic Traditions Religious texts constitute a fundamental role in their religious tradition; typically sanctified or consecrated scriptures, religions and spiritual movements believe that their sacred texts are divinely or supernaturally revealed or inspired. The Bible and the Quran are two such revered texts of Christianity and Islam, each expressing the revelations and messages communicated by their respective divine entities. Whilst these religious texts possess significant similarities in their intrinsic nature, it is, however, due to the profound differences amongst these traditions that have resulted in the development of these distinct religions and t...

- What comes to mind when you hear the word “Islam.” If you belong to the 21st century then you probably think of 911, terrorists, war in the Middle East, and ISIS. We think this, not because all muslims stand for killing, but because the name has been associated unfairly with theses monstrous tragedies and the Middle East as a whole. Today, even Christians and Jews, can be heard saying “those muslims won 't stop until they have ended all of western society.” These two sister religions to islam both disassociate themselves with it claiming that they have little to nothing in common, but, in addition to all being monotheistic religions, all worship the same god even if they have different opini...

- If there was a miracle that has happened today in this modern world of ours, it’ll be a deadly vehicle crash with the driver coming out of it with minor cuts and bruises or a soldier taking fire in a war zone and gets shot in the helmet but the bullet didn’t penetrate through. These would be considered as a miracle. In Matthew chapters eight and nine, these miracle were not just placed here for any reason, I believe Matthew is telling us something and the question is what is he trying to tell us now even in the 21st century....

- In order to have faith in something or someone you need to be able to believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that what you have faith in is 100% true. If you have believed that the sun will rise each day that is called faith but true faith is believing in something or someone that you cannot see. By comparing "The Sermon on the Mount" and “The Shahnameh”, I will show how different a person’s views are and what makes certain views wrong and what makes others the truth. I will demonstrate in this paper that “The Sermon on the Mount” is a true belief while demonstrating that “The Shahnameh” only focuses on serving man.... [tags: Jesus, God, Shahnameh, Epic poetry]

- What method of evangelism did you use and how did you start the conversation. For the past three years I have been using the servant evangelism method to reach a co-worker named Subbu.
