Only an assignment read if only you're interested
Hey professor can you help me with somethin'?
Yeah righto what is it?
Could you explain the role of religion in society and culture?
Yes well, many people believe that religion occurs only in the church, temple, or other spiritual places of gathering. They see religion and society as complete, separate things
I know that. It may seem correct on the surface, but a closer look tells us that religion and society are complexley linked and are co-dependent!
.....Well done! But in reality, religion is inherent within many aspects of society, and religious beliefs inevitably affect areas such as politics, economics, and cultural values
These bonds can be seen in religions such as muslim (Social culture) and Christianity (economics)
In each of these religions we can find insight for understanding the society in which it exists
And also as well as in the comparison of these religions and their relationships with society .
But what about the cultural side??
Well religion interprets with culture. In other words those things that come together to form something.
Culture will come up with rules to follow and ways to make you a different person while religion then makes up ways to follow this
So... In a nutshell culture is like the leader........
........and then religion will come up with ways to make your way of following these rules different from everyone else!
