Topic: Create Your Own Religion

Description

Invent your own religion. Imagine you are before Congress or some other form of government and you have to provide a rationale for why your group /beliefs/ practices /rituals, etc. should be considered a religion. Some things to consider: What is your religion called? Does it have a founder/leader? Does it have text(s)? If so, what is in it/them? Is your religion attempting to answer existential questions (e.g., why are we here)? What kind of practices or rituals are involved, if any? What is your overall worldview (afterlife? Salvation?)? Is there a moral code? What about a justice system? What is the daily life like of a follower of your religion? Do they have any enemies?

Antipathy towards the body

Horror scholar Darryl Jones has written that The Exorcist displays “a profound antipathy towards the body that has been deeply ingrained in Christian belief and practice”. The religion especially Christianity considers any words and behaviours that relates to sexuality are all taboo. They have a profound antipathy towards body, especially woman’s body, because they think sexual relationship, behaviour, and temptation against most important Christian values such as chastity and sacred.

In the movie ‘Exorcist’, Regan’s body had been taken by devil and it was represented as Regan’s words towards a priest. Before Regan was normal, she was demonstrated as a pure and innocent child. After Regan’s body was taken, she turns into dark and sexually corrupted. This move directly shows strong contrast and clearly demonstrated how Exorcist “a profound antipathy towards the body that has been deeply ingrained in Christian belief and practice”.

In our society, we call sexually attractive woman as ‘dangerous woman’. The first movie we watched in this course ‘Saved!‘, the troublem makers were represented as sexually open kids. As well as, when main character was pregnant, she started to hang out with a friend who is a trouble maker. It is general perception that bad and corrupted peoples are deeply relate to sexuality.

Women as sexual instruments of the devil

I think a lot of the antipathy toward the body stems from the Christian idea that the body acts as a temple; it should be kept pure and holy in order to honour and worship God. This has a way of elevating sex from a base animal urge, to an act that should only be committed in service to God. So in the holy union of two people in marriage, sex is for the purpose of expressing God’s love and procreation. Engaging in lustful, biologically driven sex outside of marriage then becomes a perversion and is sinful – the work of the devil. One form of sex is life giving and spiritual, the other is a corruption and evil. Furthermore, going back to the Garden of Eden, it is often women who are portrayed as susceptible to the whispering serpents (devils and demons).

The Witch (2015) comes to mind with the character of Thomasin, another pubescent girl. In this case she is not possessed by a demon but is thought to be a witch and I see both as representations of the devil at work. Another is The Crucible (1996), which also deals with witchcraft as the character of Abigail Williams lustfully draws a married man into a sinful act.

Art is meant to “go too far” sometimes

I do not believe it is possible for art to “go too far”. The only time that I would consider art going too far would be if the art tried to portray itself as completely, historically factual when it was in fact wrong. Otherwise, the whole point of art is for the artist to be able to express themselves and their vision however they desire.

I believe this because some pieces of art are meant to be over the top and/or very dramatic. This is because that is the norm in that art form (i.e. comedies, musicals, etc.), or that is how the artist intends to capture the audience’s attention. In modern culture, there are tremendous amounts of art in the world. The pieces of art that tend to be discussed and seen the most are the ones that are so over the top/dramatic that it shocks people and opens dialogue on the subject. As well, sometimes the best way for artists to ensure that the audience remembers their art and/or the message that the artist was sending is to make the art memorable because it “went too far” in a normal context.

Due to this opinion, I do not believe that there are any lines that need to be drawn. The only lines that would need to be drawn occur when something is portrayed as historically accurate when it is in fact not. That is a very easy line to judge whether someone has crossed it or not, because it is a yes or no question.

What is too far and who draws the lines?

I do not believe it is possible for art to “go to far.” An artist’s only responsibility is to his/her own vision and they should be free to express that in most any form that takes (with the exception of inciting hate/violence). The lines do not need to be drawn by the artist, but rather, they will be drawn through the reception and critique of the art, in this case the film. This discussion gets into whether art is a reflection of society or shapes society and can best be thought of as a problem of censorship.

A film like Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ (2004), received much criticism as it was seen to be an anti-Semitic movie. In this case, part of the concern was that it could “shape” society by inciting anti-Semitism. Or, as we have looked at in this course, Life of Brian (1979) was perceived by many to be blasphemous. It was thought by some to at once reflect and encourage an anti-religious trend in society. Should either of these films have been banned or censored for “going too far”?

I think films are a product of the times in which they are produced, and that context needs to be kept in mind. For example, a film made today that extolled the virtues of Nazism or one that portrayed all Muslims as evil would most certainly be met with harsh criticism and would not be widely shown. The social and cultural context of today would draw the lines, but that does not mean the lines should be imposed on the filmmaker.

Topic: Exegetical Paper on Matthew 7:1-5

Description Paper topic:
Matthew ot judge, so that you may not be judged. 2 For with the judgment you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. 3 Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your neighbor, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while the log is in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor’s eye.

GENERAL GUIDELINES TO WRITING A BRIEF EXEGETICAL PAPER
In general, exegesis involves examining the biblical text itself in its context, to arrive at a reasonable interpretation of the text. This assumes that we need to understand what an author would have meant to communicate to his particular audience, before we can discover what it might mean for today’s audience. Discovering the original meaning insofar as that is possible requires careful attention to (A) the text itself, (B) secondary sources (i.e., commentaries, biblical criticism, articles, etc.), and in this case (C), a basic understanding of the gospel writer and his theology.

A. Outline background issues (approx. 2 pages):
Any biblical commentary, however brief or extensive, will usually begin by outlining the basic or broad context of the pericope. These foundational background issues might include:
• Authorship/redaction
• Dating
• Intended audience
• Sources used by author/redactor
• Historical/cultural/religious setting
• Literary forms (oral and written)

B. Next, place the text in its more immediate context (approx. 1.5 to 2 pages):
• What comes immediately before and after the pericope under consideration? Unless it is otherwise
obvious, as you consider the immediate context, it may be helpful to say briefly why you begin and end your pericope where you do. In other words, why did you choose to discuss verses 3-7, rather than 2-7 or 3-8, etc. What makes your pericope a literary unit? In many cases the sub-titles throughout your Bible will already clearly mark periscopes (but remember, those subtitles are simply added for ease of reference for the modern reader. They are not part of the original biblical text itself. So, do not refer to your pericope by the subtitle, simply refer to it via the verse reference.
C. Provide verse by verse commentary of the pericope itself (approx. 4-5 pages):
• Discuss the text verse-by-verse. This should be the largest section of your paper. Point out any issues
that effect its meaning: this could include elements of the historical, cultural, or religious world of the author and/or audience, literary forms as they were used at the time, etc. The commentaries you consult will show you generally how this is done.
D. Next, summarize what you understand to be the original author’s intended meaning for the original audience (approx. 1-2 pages).
E. Finally, attempt to make the connections and applications of the text to our own day (approx. 1-2 pages).

• All papers should be written using the following mechanical guidelines:

1. A maximum of one-inch margins all around
2. Times Roman, 12 point font, double spacing, 1” margins.
3. Bibliography and citations should be in APA: use endnotes, not footnotes; include full bibliography. Special note: Biblical citations (i.e., Mk 3:5) should be cited in parentheses in the body of the text immediately following the biblical quotation.
4. Watch spelling, grammar, and general mechanics of your paper, including overall organization and presentation. These considerations will effect your grade.

Always use abbreviations for the following:
New Testament = NT Old Testament = OT Mark = Mk
Matthew = Mt
Luke = Lk John = Jn

Topic: Biblical Value exhibited by an organization

CASE STUDY PAPER INSTRUCTIONS

Case studies are an important part of most graduate programs as they reveal more readily the concept or theory discussed in a real-world context. Consider the chapters you have read from Hess & Cameron that present a case study of an organization. In each of these chapters, the way organizations incorporate various values (ex. grace, hope, faith, love, peace, etc.) is described in real-world scenarios. This helps us see how the value, reactions to the value, and outcomes from demonstrating the value might be displayed—and thus, presents a rich case for learning best practices and enables us to take God with us to work and everywhere.

You will complete this case study paper individually. You and your group will then use the individual case studies to complete the group presentation later in the session.

For your Case Study Paper, approach the assignment as an addition to Hess & Cameron as you will select an organization and review a Biblical value that the organization has displayed. Choose an organization not in your text. Identify a Biblical value exhibited by the organization. Discuss and expand on this discussion as to how this Biblical value connects to the organization. The purpose of this is for you to be able to indentify Biblical values in an organization. Remember, just as Hess & Cameron demonstrate, Biblical values can certainly be displayed in secular workplaces; after all, all truth is God’s truth!

A general format for the paper is:
• Title Page (The title should include the Biblical value.)
• Abstract (1/2 page to 1 page)
• Introduction
• Background of the company selected
• Discussion of the Biblical value
• Discussion of how the Biblical value is displayed
• Discussion of how this Biblical value is connected to the organization
• Discussion of how decision making in the organization is or is not affected by this Biblical value
• Lessons learned
• Conclusion
• References (at least 5 scholarly resouces, course texts, and the Bible)

The paper must be 8–10-pages (not including Title Page, Abstract, or Reference page) and must include at least 5 scholarly resources in addition to the course textbooks and the Bible. The Case Study Paper is to be written in third person and must be in current APA format.
