525 words - 3 pages

Christians Jews and Muslims are realists. This means that they believe that whether you are a believer or not it makes no difference. You cannot make up your own truth, there is true and false. So being a believer makes no difference there is still only one form of worship whether you believe or not, and that is the one of their faith.A Conservative Christian position would agree with this statement in the broader sense of Christianity.

Until Vatican II and the vernacular mass, Roman Catholic Latin mass would be identical throughout the world and had been for hundreds of years. The Roman Catholics would broadly agree, as they believe that the only legitimate form of worship is that which takes place in the Catholic Church and that is mass and a few other forms of worship. The modern catholic wouldn't fully agree with this statement but they would be a long way in that direction.Islam would also essentially agree with this as they have a set format of prayers and words in Arabic accompanied by set postures. In any mosque in the world this would be the same.A more liberal Christian however would say that the way that you worship God is immaterial as long as you do worship god. They would therefore strongly disagree with this statement, saying you should worship in a style that suits you. The way that you worship god doesn't matter as long as you worship god through Jesus Christ and obey the bible. Many liberal Christians would see the different faiths and styles of worship as a different route to the same God. So it doesn't matter how you worship or to which God you worship to as long as you do, that is what is important.I do not agree with this statement, as I believe that it is beneficial for people to worship in their own specific way that works for them and fits in with their life. It is not the form of worship that is important it is the fact that you have faith and do worship that is important.
