I find it highly offensive to see Jesus as the foundation for life and meaning. Christianity makes up about roughly one-third of the world’s religion. Among that one-third, Judaism in particular do not share the same belief as other major Christian religions. Judaism does not believe Jesus is the son of God and be worshipped as God. Jews, according to the Holy Bible, and God’s people. Yet most do not believe in Christ as their savior. Christianity itself is in a state of flux. You the Mormons who believes in Joseph smith, the Seventh Day Adventist who mostly worshipped Ellen G white, and the latest development is the non-denominations who are mostly concerned about building Mega Churches. STEP 3 Have your answers to either of the last two questions changed after reading article 3? I understand article 3 as if I am in Christ I am self-righteous. If I am not, I cannot be self- righteous. Similarly to the first two article, I can only do goods, find meaning of life, and be self- righteous only in Christianity. If I am not a “Christian”, my life is meaningless and I can’t do no good deeds outside of selfish desires. Only in Christ I can do all of those things and find the meaning of life. No, my answers have not changed. As a matter of fact, I am more assured of my answers. Now that you’ve read all of the articles, how has your view of meaning, ethics and your own worldview changed? What questions or comments do you have about what you’ve read?

The article just re-emphasizes my view point that religion creates division and prejudice. As a result, you have zealots flying plane into buildings and killings innocents in the name of religion. The overall take away from the article is be a Christian or your life is meaningless and you cannot do any good deeds.

PERSONAL WORLDVIEW & BUSINESS ETHICS 7 Business Ethical Practices Ethical practices that occur within businesses should be based on the golden rule, and corporations should base their ethical practices that rule. The various employees in an organization come from various backgrounds, and have had different sets of values instilled in them. According to Lawrence and Weber (2014), “business ethics is the application of general ethical ideas to business behavior” (pp. 70). An organization’s values, management philosophy and ethics in business respectively can potentially have significant impact how on well a business performs long term [Inv15] Luke 6:31 tells to do to others as you would have them do to you. Synovus Financial Corporation is founded on the simple principle found in Luke 6:31. It is known today as the golden rule. The core values of the company is to do what is right and take care of your people and everything else will take care of itself. Servant style leadership is prevalent throughout the company. Similar to Jesus and His disciples during the last super. In John Chapter 13, Jesus washed His disciples’ feet and explained to them what it means to be a servant leader. He
