RELIGION INTERVIEW ESSAY 1 Week 5 Assignment RELI448N-13525 Chamberlain University February 09,2019 Nicole Ross
INTERVIEW ESSAY Introduction Christianity is the religion that I identify with the most. Most of my family members identify with Christian theology which is why I grew up under the teaching of Christianity as a child. According to Molloy 2013, Christians believe that Jesus Christ was the Son of God, fully human and fully divine and that through believing in him and following his teachings they can inherit eternal life. Also, that God is an eternal, intelligent power who created the universe as an expression of love. Christians also hold the belief that God is made of three “Persons”: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—together called the Trinity. My interviewee’s religion of choice is the Islam religion. According to Molloy 2013, Islam literally means “surrender” or “submission,” indicating wholehearted surrender to God, and a Muslim is one who submits to God (Allah). The name of God is invoked in daily conversation, particularly in the frequently used phrase, “if God wills.” People are called to prayer several times a day by a muezzin, a chanter who announces that Allah is great, greater than anything else (Molloy, 2013). The Interview The conversation between myself and the interviewee was a success. One of the Islam material expressions is through their art. The interviewee stated that architecture is one of the most significant forms of material expressions for the Islam religion. The architecture that the interviewee is referring are Mosques. The Mosque is one of the places Muslims go to worship, which is considered a material expression for their religion (Molloy, 2013). The interviewee stated that he does attend a mosque in his home town where there is prayer several times a day.
