Marx views religion as a way of creating excuses and providing reasons to escape from our problems, seeking for divine intervention in the hope that it will make the world a better place. People will momentarily run away from their problems when they arise and seek for higher powers to calm them down. Marx therefore did not associate himself with religion as much as he lived without offending people. According to Marx “religion is the opium of the people.” This notion illustrates that religion creates an illusion of fantasies to the less fortunate people in the society. In these economic hard times life has become unbearable to many thus to Karl Marx religion is used as scapegoat from the reality.
Humanity needs to be more conscious of the damage we are causing each other and how we are destroying ourselves but not loving each other and respecting each other way of living. We are not even taking care of our planet and have become materialist. If we make conscious of our actions, we will notice we are not on the right path. It is understandable others people traditions and believes we can not judge or hate others because they don’t have our same way of living or perspective. Especially at this time and in this country we all races from all over the world unites.
On the one hand is Jesus that wants humanity to be free and tries to forgive and justify human beings. On the other hand is The Grand Inquisitor that wants to help humanity by forcing people to obey the rules and limiting their freedom, because he thinks that human beings are too weak to manage their freedom by their own, so they need someone ruling them, and describes it, “No science will give them bread so long as they remain free. In the end they will lay their freedom at our feet, and say to us, “Make us your slaves, but feed us.” ” (Dostoevsky, 1971, p.17). In other words, this quote means that The Grand Inquisitor understands that society with authority is the only way to keep the peace and
Thus, the only time a person can be sure he is right is if he is constantly open to differing opinions; there must be a standing invitation to try to disprove his beliefs.

God and Money cannot be intertwined because when money is involved the human’s selfishness, greed, and power hunger takes over and causes people to forget about morals and beliefs that cause them to make decisions that only benefit them now, not the people of the future or the people that are less fortunate now in the present. “Jesus as Liberator” and “Kairos time” help us see the big mistake in mainstream Christianity. Columbus Christianity might as well be the total opposite of Liberation theology is, which means that mainstream Christianity is not doing the right things because it is only looking out for its people and that it. Kairos time shows how Liberation theology took the right moment by the hand, unlike mainstream Christianity, and

The Moral of Arthur Miller's The Crucible The Crucible is a play about the connections between sinning and paranoia, hysteria, and religious intolerance. The people of Arthur Miller's Salem in 1692 would consider the very idea of a private life unorthodox. The government of Salem, and of Massachusetts as a whole, is a theocracy, with the legal system based on the Bible. Moral laws and state laws are the same and someone's personal life must obey these moral laws, or that person represents a threat to the public good. This well planned story of struggle in an oppressive society leaves freedom for many morals for life, death and religion.

Any people who do not accept the Islamic State 's fundamentalist Muslim beliefs are killed. In other words if relativism causes us to undermine our moral confidence resulting in tolerance for other groups this is obviously a defect of the theory when applied to cultures that have intolerance integrated into their belief system. In turn, a critic could argue that the tolerance of relativism is not a benefit but rather a defect of the theory as it can cause people to stand by as aggressive belief systems take
According to Thomas Hobbes, the reason this is the case is because people are selfish and evil and that they protect their interests really well by using certain tactics to make sure other people devastate their needs and wants. Also, without a leader, these people would be very chaotic and attack one another of many things when there isn’t any government in charge. Thomas Hobbes also didn 't support the idea of democracy where the citizens’ were allowed to vote for their government leaders. Due to his idea that people are only trying to promote their self-interests, democracy wouldn’t be a great idea because he wrote that “All mankind is in a perpetual and restless desire for power which can only stop in death,” so giving power to the individual would be creating a dangerous situation which would start a “war of every man against every man, “and life will be “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.” Despite all this, Thomas Hobbes still believed a diverse group of representatives that can present the problems of the common person to king, so prevent them from being cruel and unfair but the monarch has the final
