EUTHANASIAEuthanasiaIntroductionWorking as a health care provider in the united states during the 21st century is a very interesting time to be providing care to patients. The world we are living in is becoming more and more diverse as the days go on. This diversity means that a nurses’ case load can be comprised of individuals from all different walks of life, religions, race, education level, and much more. The purpose of this case study is to analyze the differences in world view perceptions between two religions: Buddhism and Christianity. These two religions are very widely followed, and there is a strong possibility that a nurse working in a metropolitan area will provide care to a person of either of the faiths mentioned above. There are 7 questions that are used to address the worldview of a religion, and they include: prime reality, the world around us, what is a human being, what happens after death, how we are able to receive knowledge, how weare able to distinguish right from wrong, and the meaning of our history on Earth.Worldview Principles of ChristianityWorldviews vary drastically from one religion to another, and the first worldview focuseson prime reality, in Christianity the main believe in regard to prime reality is God. This answer isrooted in the belief that God is the basis of our foundation in life. He is the creator of the universe, He is holy, eternal, full of wisdom, perfect in every way , and full of wisdom. God, the prime reality, is complex in every way possible, and He the one responsible for our creation, and is the reason for our existence. In Buddhism, the belief about prime reality is that everything around us is god. God to Buddhists can be defined as an energy, presence, force, being, consciousness all in one. 2

EUTHANASIAThe second worldview that focuses on the world around us in regard to Christian belief says that the world was created by God. The creation of Earth, its inhabitants, and the universe were created with a certain structure and order. God set out on a mission to provide us with a world we deserve with everything at our disposal. In Buddhism there is no true value held in regard to their time on earth, they are concerned with their afterlife. The third worldview discusses the topic of humanity. The Christians hold the belief that humans are creatures that are created in God’s image, they are washed of the blood of Christ, andbeings full of potential. Humans were born without sin, but unfortunately dude to the actions of Adam and Eve, they inherited Original Sin.
