opportunities to clarify and reflect upon your thinking of world history in different ways.

My idea of universal religion is…. You wanted me to write about should there be a separation of church and state but, I believe that church and state should c0-exsit together. Our country was founded/built on religion with the motto “In God We Trust”. I believe with God our
World Civilization I 13 country is stronger. Over the past several years we have gotten away from “In God We Trust” and our government has tried to run this country their way and it has brought several terrorist attacks that has seen the death of innocent lives. Having church in our government we saw a long period of time with peace and no wars that alone speaks for it’s self. We need to bring church back into our government so our country can prosper. To me religion is your beliefs of your God, his word and how you worship and show that you are a Christian or what ever religion you believe in. there are several types of religion. Each religion has there own customs and rituals when it comes to worshiping God. To me believing in the one and only God that created the earth, every living thing and people, who forgave us for our sins by sending his only son to die for our sins, eternal life an the ten commandments is the only God to believe in and worship. Religion is something you have to believe with all your heart and realize that you are going to make mistakes and to understand to be forgiven of those sins you have to believe in your heart and ask god for forgiveness as well as believe that you have been forgiven and live the life and the way God wants you to live. My idea of a universal religion would consist of everyone believing in heaven and hell, believing in the one and only God that created the earth. A universal religion would consist of the true stories of the Bible that teaches us about healing, feeding the hungry, making the dead rise, the birth of Jesus, Jesus’ teachings, and his death, Jesus rising from the dead, the coming of the Lord for his believers to come home. Do I think a universal
World Civilization I 14 religion? I believe it will in the days after Jesus and God come down from heaven and his believers are taken home. People that are left will have to make a choice to believe in him or to continue to not believe in him.
