Since man alone is capable of moral action, only he can carry the "divine trust" from which "heaven and earth and mountain" shied away. The only sustainable community is one that fits the human economy into the ever-renewing economy of the planet. I am a priest in the Episcopal Church, and since priesthood vested in an individual is antithetical to Protestantism, there are no Protestant priests. I quote his own words: ‘THINK NOT THAT I AM COME TO DESTROY THE LAW, OR THE PROPHETS: I AM NOT COME TO DESTROY, BUT TO FULFIL.

In general, if your good works are adequate, you get to heaven (Sura 23:103). The example of a believer is like a fresh tender plant; from whichever direction the wind blows, it bends the plant. Jewish Women are permitted to carry out trade activities of buying and selling their personal assets and to enter into business contracts with others Judaism grants a woman the right to live with pride and integrity, and just like Islamic teachings it orders men to respect their wives, mothers, and daughters and take due care of them by avoiding beatings, scolding, and other forms of physical or mental abuse Christianity, like the other two of its contemporaries, places a high value on human beings.

Students view and discuss images of three types of Buddhist iconography -- stupas, images of the Buddha, and cave sanctuaries -- and observe the changes in style and meaning as one moves from India through Central Asia to China, Korea, and Japan.

Mohammad was a merchant by trade, but often he visited a cave to think. Imams in China are educated at one of ten Qur’anic Schools where they are also educated in state law and religious policy. It is acceptable for Muslim nations to declare hudna, or truce, at times when the infidel nations are too powerful for open warfare to make sense. The complexity of the field forces oversimplification when an attempt is made to cover all religions in one volume, and the attempt to be brief seems to create an irresistible tendency to force the religions into patterns.

Will The Quran lays bare the true position of Christ in a single verse, it says (1) That he was the son of a woman, Mary, and therefore a man; (2) But an apostle, a man with a mission from God, and therefore he is entitled to honour; (3) A Word bestowed on Mary, for he was created by God’s word “Be”(kun), and he was; see Holy Quran 3:59.
