Redegør for det religionsfaglige begreb ”helligsted”

Et helligsted betragtes særligt biblen og ikke mindst kirker som helligdomme. I europa var en kirkes status som hellig oprindeligt stærkt forbundet med at den blev opført på et helligt sted som ofte var lig med at et mirakel eller martyrium angiveligt havde fundet sted på stedet, eller en hellig person var begravet i eller ved kirken.

Giv en kort præsentation af de to helligsteder gravkirken og al-Aqsa-området
Gravkirken –
Gravkirken betragtes som et af de helligeste steder. Jesus grav. Der findes 14 stationer på ruten Via Dolorosa hvor fra Jesus bliver dømt til døden til stedet hvor Jesus blev lagt i graven. Gravkirken er den sidste station.
Gravkirken er fælleseje af den græsk-ortodokse, katolske, syriske, koptiske, armenske og etiopiske kirke som deles og enes om dette hellige sted.
Gravkirken er fra det 4. århundrede og kapellet i midten af kirken er bygget over Jesus grav i det 12. århundrede.

Al-Aqsa -
Al-Aqsa er Jerusalems største moske og blev bygget færdig i år 715. Den har været ødelagt flere gange af jordskælv og er genopbygget, så næsten ingenting af den oprindelige moske er tilbage.
I området omkring Al-Aqsa er tilknyttet flere mindre helligdomme, et anlæg hvor de bedende kan foretage den rituelle renselse inden de træder ind i moskeen, der ligger også et stort underjordisk rum, som blev brugt som stalde. Der er også tilknyttet porte, fontæner, minareter og mure. Hele området er ca. 150.000 m2.
Al-Aqsa analyse –
Forfatteren Sheik Ra’ed Salah mener, at det er alle muslimers pligt, at vide hvad den hellige Al-Aqsa er. Han har under sine rejser måttet konstatere, at muslimerne har en helt forkert forståelse, af den hellige moske. De fleste ved ikke hvad den hellige Al-Aqsa moske er.

...Create Your Own Religion “I created you and the world on which you live. I created the realm in which your world exists and it in my hand. I control that which you cannot stop or escape and under which all is bound. I am all knowing and understanding. I know that by nature you cannot achieve perfection and I do not hold that against you. I am your father Largesse and I love you.” These are the first words Largesse wrote to his devote followers the Pragmatics in the Tomes of Creation. Largesse is the sovering god of the Lucid religion. Worship of Goddess Durga is based on myths where Durga symbolizes the divine power. She is depicted as a large fat man who holds a sphere in his right hand and a scribe in his left. The sphere that he holds contains the universe in which we live. The scribe is used to write in her Tomes Of Creation “I give on to you twelve holy temples in which I have placed the vassal of my will, The Tomes Of Creation. To keep my Tomes free of human corruption I have made it so that only the scribe that I posses may write with in the Tomes. The temples are your sanctuaries while in them no harm will come to you. Use the locations of my twelve temples as the beginning of the twelve holy cities. All are free to come visit and read of the Tomes and I will damn all who attempt to stop my people from reading its truth for them self’s. ” After Largesse created man he gave them twelve great temples that he distributed about the earth as dwelling for his Tomes......

...mythos, all the ancient stories intend simply to give a poetic accounting for cosmic origins.2 In the scientific community there is a well known and accepted theory known as the "Big Bang Theory". Most people know of this theory because they were taught it in school. Yet it usually contradicted what their parents and pastors taught them in church. As a result, the Big Bang Theory was generally discarded as something that intellectual minds which cannot exist upon the true faith alone, must accept as truth. The Big Bang Theory is stated in condensed form as follows. As the universe expanded, the residual radiation from the big bang would continue to cool, until now it should be a temperature of about 3 K (about -270ø C/-454ø F). This relic radiation was detected by radio astronomy in 1965, thereby providing what most astronomers consider to be confirmation of the big bang theory.3 In this statement we have our first of arguments over creationism by evolution. We have the beginnings of a proof that there was a time or rather, I should say, a point in time where there was indeed nothing. Many creationists will argue that the universe is too ordered; the path of the planets (which meant wanderers, or great wanderers in early Grecian society) is too ordered, too perfect. I will start by asking you to attempt to define perfect (as it existed at that time). In the creationalistic point of view, a person might write it off as......

...Contemporary Issues in Western Religions Islam Struggles within Christianity and Judaism Islam’s nature of sacred reality is monotheistic just as Christianity and Judaism, and is very similar in their religious formation. The theoretical foundations of each belief are historically similar and all saying the same message, that there is only one true God. The Islamic religious structure believes in the same God as Judaism and Christianity, the God of Abraham, but Islam knows him as Allah. There are some differences in the way Islam refer to Allah as God and Christianity and Judaism prefer to say God but theoretically they are referring to the same one true God. The origin of Islamic way of living is to seek to serve Allah only, through the instructions given by Allah to the prophet and first Muslim Muhammad. The history of the Islamic religion is connected to Judaism and Christianity in the same way because they also believe the way of the righteous is to submit to God and instruction on God’s will has been given through prophecy. Only Christianity submission is through the redemption of Jesus Christ by the New Testament and Judaism submission to God is to follow the Laws of the Old Testament. They all began in the Middle East where Islam’s prophet Muhammad was the prophecy of Abraham’s first son Ishmael by Hagar his servant and Judaism and Christianity’s prophecy developed in the Middle East by Abraham’s youngest son Isaac from Sarah Abraham’s wife. Even though each......

Comparison of C, C++, and C#

...Jason Latham Comparison of C, C++, and C# IADT Seattle The C family of languages has been a cornerstone in the programming field for years. So exactly what is the C family? It includes the C, C++ and C# (pronounced sharp) languages. Now that we know what they are, what are the differences between the three? Well, that is what will be discussed here. C is a minimalistic programming language because it could be compiled in a straightforward manner by a relatively simple compiler. C offers low-level access to memory via pointers and the ability to access specific hardware addresses. C generates only a few instructions of machine languages for each of its core language elements and does not require extensive run-time support. It can be concluded that C language is suitable for many systems-programming applications that had traditionally been implemented in assembly languages (Gabb, 2012). With its inherent low-level memory access and small run-time support, using C for embedded hardware systems is ideal. Many devices such as robots, machinery, and electronic tools are programmed utilizing its ability to access specific hardware addresses. However, as C is structured oriented programming language and focuses on the procedural programming paradigm, it is relatively hard to control the large-scale program. As C language has high level and machine level mixed programming capacity, it is used in most hardware related applications. It is very suitable for writing programs in......

E85 Flex Fuel

...E85, which stands for 85 percent ethanol (which is an alcohol) and 15 percent gasoline ranges from 100-105 octane. It has been around for quite some time but has just recently became fairly popular with newer car models. Ethanol was first used during the 1850’s as a lighting fuel, but was quickly put to rest after heavy taxes were placed on ethanol during the civil war. The first Model A in 1908 was powered by gasoline and ethanol, but then ethanol was never used much after that until the late 90’s when it returned. Flex fuel vehicles became quite popular starting in the 90’s and have continued to be produced by car manufactures to date. There are more than 8.5 million flex fuel vehicles on the road in the US, including both cars and trucks. What exactly is E85 you ask? Well E85 is a blend of ethanol and gasoline. E85 is a clean- burning, American made alternative fuel produced from renewable resources, such as starch in field corn. Ethanol is made from US supplies and mixed in US factories which makes us independent from foreign oil need. The ethanol making process is one of the many positive factors to creating a cleaner environment. Ethanol is a clear alcohol that is fermented from the starches created from common crops such as corn. There are two different processes to fermenting the ethanol, dry milling and wet milling. During dry milling, the grain is mixed with water, and then enzymes are added to convert the starch to dextrose. The fermentation process then creates......

...Religion Natasha Smith PHI 208 Ethics and Moral Reasoning Instructor: Christopher Foster 2/10/2014 There are a couple philosophers that believe in different situations when I comes to the existence and the belief of God. The essay will explain the philosophers view points on the religion of God. There are a few arguments of which existence is the strongest. It will explain many aspects on science and religion, atheism, moral and human freedom on God’s existence. Believing in God and believing in God’s existence can have many aspects with different views from philosophers, the arguments will explain which philosopher is more compelling than the other. When it comes to the existence of God, some philosophers believe that it is necessary to have proof and some believe that proof is not necessary if we have faith. One philosopher named, Thomas Aquinas believed that God is from faith and first cause is the proof of God. Let’s take a look at what Thomas had to say, “that the existence of God is not demonstrable: that God's existence is an article of faith, and that articles of faith are not demonstrable, because the office of demonstration is to prove, but faith pertains (only) to things that are not to be proven, as is evident from the Epistle to the Hebrews, 11.” (Paul Halsall, 1988.) Therefore, I don’t believe that we need proof of God’s existence. I agree with Thomas that God is faith. No, proving God’s existence is not necessary because God is faith, we have to......

Flex Time in the Work Place

...significantly from the non-work related needs of the individual. Furthermore, if companies are insensitive to employee needs, and work becomes a significant source of stress, not only does worker productivity lessen but that company’s name and reputation as an employer may hinder its own ability attract necessary quality employees. Employees and employers alike are looking for ways to increase worker satisfaction. One increasingly attractive solution is the growing acceptance of a flexible work week and schedule. Prominent employers like Kraft Foods, Texas Instruments and First Tennessee Bank have implemented these changes for their workers to boost productivity while increasing job satisfaction (Forbes). Employers are also using these flex schedules as a way of attracting and retaining their employees. For example, “In 1999 only 18 companies on Fortune magazine’s list of Best Places to Work offered telecommuting. Today, 79 do (ABC News).” The definition of flexibility encompasses a wide range of topics such as: • Flextime (compressed work weeks and shift flexibility) • Telecommuting • Paid Time Off (personal days and vacation by the hour) “Business leaders are learning how to position flexibility as a powerful management tool used to accomplish work more efficiently, while caring about the needs of employees and bringing strategic value to the organization (US Dept of Labor)”. Several options which are being used today include a shortened......

Flex Technology Case Study

...FLEX TECHNOLOGY ASSIGNMENT 1. Ignoring the option to sell to BioDevice in year two, at what price do you value the project? From the venture capitalist perspective, I would use the same valuation as the financial consulting firm of $530,539 at a 70% discount rate. Because this investment is just starting out, it is in the “seed and startup” stage of development, which requires between a 50% and 100% required rate of return in order to account for the vast amount of unknown risk as well as the expertise that the investors will be able to provide for the project. As the developer, Krause is certainly very optimistic about his investment; the higher rate of return I would expect accounts for all of the unknowns regarding the bias of cash flow presented by Krause. 2. How does the option to sell in year two change your analysis? Can you estimate what percentage of the time he will exercise this option? The option to sell in year two lowers the risk of the investment because we will be able to see how successful the project is within the first year, and we might be able to recover some loss if the project is not as successful as initially anticipated. However, I still feel that it would fall within the recommended range of the initial stages of development, but on the lower range of required rate of returns (50%). Using a discount rate of 50%, the project would now be valued at $1,331,678. With this discount rate, the project is only 27% likely to be......

...1 Alla tre religionernas släktskap börjar med profeten Abraham/ Ibrahim . I alla tre heliga skrifterna är Abraham stamfader för religionerna. Det viktigaste skälet för alla tre religionerna är att man endast tror på en gud. 2 .a Islam är en mycket stark monoetisk religion, man anser den största synden i islam är att sätta någon jämsides med gud. Gud är allsmäktig och kan allt. Han ger människan vägledning genom uppenbarelser för i koranen och profeter, muslimerna anser att koranen är författad av gud. Islam menar att världen är för god för att gud har skapat den, Gud har skapat allt. Gud var inte heller mänsklig sa dom eftersom att han hade inte en enda vilodag. Gud har gett allt människan behöver i sitt liv, och olika regler att följa och leva efter. De fem pelarna är viktigast, de utgör gudsdyrkan för en trogen muslim. De 5 pelarna är tronbekännelsen, Bönen, Fastan, Allmosan och valfärden. Judendomens syn på gud är att han är skaparen, de är han som ger liv. Gud är helig i judendomen han kan inte ha något ont och han vill att sitt folk ska vara heligt precis som han är därför måste människorna leva ett liv som är under guds lag Thoran. Gud valde inte ut judarna för de var bättre utan han valde just dem för ett uppdrag. De pratas om ofta i de heliga texterna den stora kärlek gud har till sitt utvalda folk. Judarna är hans uppdrag, att de ska följa hans regler. Kristendom är det en gud man tror på som sagt. Skaparen av allt, gud är evig och det finns bilder på gud ,......

Flex Time Case Analysis

...Organisational Behaviour FLEX TIME Case Analysis Group Members Summary of the Facts Electro Electronics was an electronic research firm established in 1948 and was based in Houston, Texas. Over time, the firm grew into a product area of electronic test instruments and commercial building control systems. Despite these changes, the firm was still involved in contract work. Mr. Fred Codova was the President of the company at this time. Due to severe traffic problems the implementation of a ‘Flex Time’ system was undertaken per suggestion from the Mayor. This implementation was said to be able to increase productivity along with a higher morale of work. President Cordova assigned the task of designing the plan and writing a memo to the Director of Personnel, Richard Sasche.The company was accustomed to the traditional work hours. The rush hour in the morning and evening period had always caused problems amongst the work force. The memo about the Flex Time plan was suggested to be posted for all employees to see. The memo informed workers about the plan and its guidelines. The Digital Display team was headed by Jim Hallora, who was the project coordinator. Jim worked at the firm for 27 years and is considered conservative with his thought and unsociable yet very argumentative whenever his mandates are criticized. He always exerts much authority over his workers.The Flex Time program is implemented and Jim disagrees and writes his own memo to be able to......

Religion sometimes used to refer to both male and female homosexuals. There are a number of homosexuals that do not openly identify themselves as such due to homophobia and heterosexists discrimination. Homophobia is the showing of negative attitudes and feelings towards homosexuals and homosexuality. It can be expressed as contempt, aversion or hatred and is sometimes related to religious beliefs Many gay and lesbian people are in committed same-sex relationships which are seen to be equivalent to heterosexual relationships. Some people admire and encourage such relationships while others condemn them and base their argument on religion. Religion and homosexuality are two aspects that have always clashed historically and recently. Many religions argue that it is the homosexual actions that are sinful rather than the state of being homosexual. Some religions condemn homosexuality while some accept it. Here we look at different religious views on homosexuality. DIFFERENT RELIGIOUS VIEWS ON HOMOSEXUALITY A. Christianity Christian denominations hold different views on the issue of homosexuality, some condemn it out rightly while others accept it completely. Most Christian denominations welcome people attracted to the same sex but teach that homosexual acts are sinful. Conservative denominations generally oppose same sex relations based on old and New Testament texts that describe human sexual relations as strictly between man and woman. For example; Leviticus 18: 22 – You......

...Religion is a major contributor to the prejudices and social detachment in the structure of society. Religion is practiced all over the world in some form or aspect. Religion may be defined as the concept of devoting one’s life to a standard of set codes, beliefs, rituals and/ or traditions. Early religions practiced in America justified conformity in early settlers. One of the first structural religions practiced after the arrival of the Europeans to America has influences of Puritanism (Jamestown 1492). Christianity among many different religious, originated from the concept that some individuals are blessed with while others are cursed (Cain and Abel, Genesis, Ch. 4, Holy Bible, King James). This chapter in the Bible has been used to discipline, control race relations, social contacts, and individual life styles to name a few. The Holy Bible is used actively in the United States court room, before every testimony, A Judge or bailiff will ask Individuals if they “swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help you God? Jim Jones founded the “Peoples Temple Full Gospel Christian Church”, (Wessinger, 2000) as a means of providing hope in desperate times, elderly, poor, and disadvantaged citizens were converting. Jim Jones used social and ethnic issues to subdue his flock of mostly African Americans. The Christian aspect of the People’s Temple was soon transformed into what many refer to as a “cult”.

...Defining Religion Defining & measuring religion is very hard. Religion can be so personal that it's impossible to express and to quantifiably measure There tends to be 2 ways: Substance - trying to get what the essence of religion is Function - what religion does in society Inclusivist & exclusivist o Inclusivist definitions take a broad view of what constitutes 'religion'. They could include [political movements, social movements and organisation etc. as long as they seem to carry out the functions of religion. o This could be a tautological way to define religion - a religion is something that appears to carry out the function of a religion. But what are the functions of religion? Who decides and on what criteria? o Exclusivist definitions take a narrower view of what constitutes a religion. They try and narrow down to the specifically religious and would exclude political movements for eg. o The problem here is in defining what constitutes 'religious'. Getting to the core of 'the religious' is v difficult. Glock & Stark Measuring religion They suggest 5 dimensions of religion that could be applied in order to measure the degree of religiosity in a society o Belief - the essential beliefs of a religion - core theology o Practice - acts of public and private worship and ritual o Experience - subjunctive feelings of being associated with some higher power or being o Knowledge - depth of......
