Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism are five of the major religions in the world. As there are several types of religions that exist in the world today, these are the five religions that have a huge impact to the understanding about life on earth and after death. Christianity, Judaism, and Islam fall under the Abrahamic religion, the religion that firmly believes that human spiritual growth was born through Abraham and his descendents. Hinduism and Buddhism descend under the Dharmic religion, a religion that believes in an ultimate spiritual reality beyond the ...view middle of the document...

Regardless of religion, everyone was taught to live ethically, be considerate, and be a blessing to one another. The purpose in life is the same but through distinct teachings and doctrine. I believe if everyone believes in the same, one God we should not expect a different message. Believers or followers should understand that we have one God with one message for all humanity. This message is to love one another, be kind and honest. Each beliefs and faith of the diverse religion should be combined as one.
Although there are several ways these religions are similar, they differ greatly. One difference between the religions is the type of religion. Christianity, Judaism and Islam are Abrahamic religion, a religion that originated in the Old Testament during Abraham’s time. Hinduism and Buddhism are Dharmic religions, a religion that believes there is an ultimate spirituality beyond the illusions of the physical world (HUM 300, n.d.). Although each religion delivers the same message of love however they differ in their concept of God. There is a different teaching of how God is perceived in each religion. Some religion, such as Hinduism and Buddhism do not believe in just one God. Instead they believe that God is everything that surrounds us. Moreover, each religion is different in rules or commandments and way of ceremonial rituals. Each has their own unique way of performing their custom and religious ritual.
After learning the differences and commonalities of each religion, I have learned that I must live ethically and allow acceptance to other religions, faith and/or beliefs. I must not force my religion on my fellow employees nor judge their choice of their beliefs or religion. Furthermore, I would promote ways within the work environment to accept differences. Give allowance to accept beliefs outside of my own belief and religion. In conclusion, I would exercise my belief in applying the Golden rule, “Love my neighbor” and treat others the way I would like to be treated.
