The vital resource for grading all assignments from the Comparative Religions
course, which includes:
- An examination of over 50 world religious views, always with a focus on the Word of God as truth.
- Weekly connections to the World Religions and Cults Generalized Timeline Chart with a church and denominational breakdown.
A world religion is a belief system that attempts to explain some aspect of reality and often how the physical and spiritual world operates; and yet it is independent of another world religion (though they often have different sects, cults, or denominations). A cult is typically defined as a religious offshoot of a major world religion that no longer holds to the core tenets of that world religion. This course cannot examine every world religion, cult, sect, or system, but quite a few have been selected from different belief systems, and these will be critiqued. Note: Because this course is very reading intensive, a teacher might evaluate specific chapters they would prefer to cover, or perhaps adjust the schedule provided to cover a two-year period.
The calendar provides daily lessons with clear objectives and guided readings.
