Out of this the great world religions emerged. The religions were decided up based on the ideas of leaders and prophets of the time. Now this brought changes into the cites but it also brought meaning to ones life. 6. Colonialism is “the political, social, cultural, and economic domination of one society by another” (Esposito, Fasching, & Lewis, 2017). Colonialism was the idea to push your faith on someone one no matter what, in 1492 Western colonialism came close to achieving totally spread of spread of Christianity on a global scale. Colonialism can also cause people to reject the ideas, who are normally called fundamentalist, modernists, or postmodernists. All of these rejects parts of this new religion forced on them but also want to use parts of it to better their own religion. 7. How premodern, modern, and postmodern are being use in this book are by describing a civilization through the idea of spreading religion from society. Premodern describes a “civilization in which there is no separation between a dominant religion and society” (Esposito, Fasching, & Lewis, 2017). Modern describes a “civilization that separates its citizens’ lives into public and private spheres, restricting religion to private life” (Esposito, Fasching, & Lewis, 2017). Postmodern describes “society typified by accepting public diversity in both religious beliefs and social practices. In today’s world the world is a “correlation between the postmodern challenge to modernity and the postcolonial challenge to colonialism.” (Esposito, Fasching, & Lewis, 2017) 8. In premodern, religion plays a decisive role in explaining and ordering life. It also provided most certain knowledge one could have of the world. Religion was the center of cultures way of life. In modern, religion is marked as personal faith or opinion. Due to this Religion has little impact on society. According to Jean-Francois Lyotard postmodern “is characterized by the collapse of the all-encompassing sacred stories or “grand narratives” through which human beings interpreted life in their respective cultures.”
