Religions
Catholic
The Catholic religion believes in only one God, but they also believe and worship Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary and the Saints. They do not believe in reincarnation, but they do believe in the afterlife, Heaven or Hell. Their sacred text they read is the Holy Bible. A few rituals they perform and celebrate are confirmation, baptizing, and celebration of Easter. Some assumptions made about Catholicism are that they worship statues, which has been claimed many times as untrue. I uncovered that Catholic actually means “throughout the whole, universal.” My religion, Christianity, does have a few things in common with Catholicism; we worship the same God and Jesus Christ, ...view middle of the document...

My religion is very similar to Methodism, closer to this religion than the others described, in the fact that we believe in God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, and live by teaching others the good grace of God.
Jehovah’s Witness
Jehovah’s Witness believe and emphasize the one true God and believe that Jesus is the only “high priest” between God and humanity. They believe that life after death is a state of non-existence with no consciousness. They also believe there is no Hell or demons, and believe only a chosen 144,000 people go to Heaven. Their sacred text is the Holy Bible, teaching out of both the Old and New Testaments. Jehovah Witness rituals include baptism, strictly for adults, and Memorial, or an event that celebrates of Jesus’s “Last Supper.” Something I found interesting is that they meet three times a week for worship, which begin with a public lecture followed a study of a biblical theme. My religion isn’t similar to Jehovah’s Witness in anyway except the fact that we believe in God as the Holy father and Jesus as the Holy son.
Islam
Islamic people believe in the one God called Allah. They believe that deceased souls remain in their graves until Judgment Day, the day God chooses who is worthy enough to enter Paradise or damned to Hell. Their sacred text they live and teach by is the Qur’an. One of their rituals is The Five Pillars of Islam, which are the five religious duties for every Muslim. Fulfillment of these duties is believed to bring rewards in both this life and the afterlife. Something I found interesting is that the word Islam actually means “submission” which seems to be the central theme to Islamic belief, submission and worship to Allah. My religion isn’t close to this religion in any sense besides the fact that we both believe in a Paradise, or Heaven, and Hell.
Buddhist
The Buddhist religion encompasses their beliefs and traditions mainly around the teachings of their God, Buddha. They believe that life is a journey and death is a return back to earth, or one was reincarnated by how one lived their life previously. Their sacred text is the Sutras, which are believed that they are the actual words of Buddha and his teachings. The practice of meditation is central to nearly all forms of Buddhism, and it derives directly from the Buddha’s experiences and teachings. Meditation is the central focus of Zen Buddhism and the only way to liberation. Something I found interesting is that they emphasize finding the true meaning of life through meditation and focus. My religion has nothing what-so-ever with Buddhism.
Jewish
Jewish people believe in only one all-powerful God and refer to Jesus as the Messiah. They believe in a Heaven and Hell, and believe in Judgment Day. On Judgment Day there will be three groups of people: the Righteous, the Wicked, and the people in between. Jewish sacred text derives from the Torah, which is an important part of Jewish child education focused mainly on textual study. Some rituals...
