RE

LI: I can answer a question regarding controversy around belief and religion

 

Today is our final RE lesson. We are going to answer the question:

How and why does religion bring peace and conflict?

 

Over the past lessons, we have considered this question by:

  • Learning what the ‘golden rule’ and what a ‘just war’ are (last Wednesday)
  • Learning about justifications for peace and war in Christianity, Hinduism and Judaism (last Thursday)
  • Exploring places were religions can peacefully work together (last Friday)
  • Considering just reasons for war (Monday)

 

Take time now to think about these questions. If you have a family member around, maybe discuss them with them and debate together.

It’s time to answer the big question: How and why does religion bring peace and conflict?

I suggest that you structure your answer in the following way:

  1. An introduction (introduce the topic)
  2. Reasons why religion brings peace
  3. Reasons why religion brings war
  4. A conclusion (your final opinion)

 

Here is a list of vocabulary to look to include in your answer:

  • Just war
  • Golden rule
  • Dharma/karma
  • Conflict
  • God
  • Pacifism
  • Gandhi
  • Martin Luther King
  • Hindus
  • Christians
  • Jews
  • House of Religions

 

Please send your final answers on Dojo as your final piece of RE work this half term.
