At the point when individuals are hit with a disease or have a genuine physical issue they go to God and religion to help them through the experience they are confronting. Regardless of what religion somebody has confidence in or which god they decide to love, there are likenesses among the differing beliefs. The objective of this paper is to analyze two different faith worldviews with respect to the social interaction that is offered among them. James Sire describes a worldview as a dedication, a fundamental orientation of the heart that can be expressed as a tale or as a collection of presuppositions (Shelly & Miller, 2006). The two faith worldviews I will analyze are Christianity and Sikhism. The seven perspective inquiries as indicated by James Sire are as per the following: ‘What is prime reality? What is the nature of the world around us? What is a human being? What happens to an individual at death? Why is it possible to know anything at all? How would we realize what is right or wrong? What is the significance of mankind’s history?” (Shelly & Miller).
What is Prime Reality?
The perspectives of Christianity are for the most part scripturally based. The prime truth is an idea that is individualized; Jesus Christ is at the focal point of prime reality for a Christian, anyway every Christian won’t have a similar reality as another devotee. Christians accept that God made man, and he sent his child Jesus Christ through the Virgin Mary as our deliverer. Jesus was executed for humankind and restored on the third day and that there will one day be a second happening to our ruler Jesus.
The Sikh perspective depends on the way of thinking of Guru Granth Sahib; it is an assortment of compositions and songs by the past Gurus of Sikhism, including writing from Muslim and Hindu scholars. The Sikh accepts there is one God, who is the genuine Guru. Previous Guru Nanak alludes to God as Karta Purkh or Creator Person.
What is the nature of the world around us?
The idea of outside reality for Christians is that God is maker of the world and Christians have an individual relationship with him. Sikhism outer the truth is that God is the maker of all things, and everything in life is honorable. Being a piece of this world is an open door for the spirit to rest with God.
What is a human being?
In the Christian confidence an individual is made in the image of God. In Genesis God stated, ‘Let us make humanity in our picture, in our similarity, so God made humankind in his own image, in the image of God he made them, male and female he made them.’ (Gen 26 and 27). The Sikh conviction is that people are at the highest point of made creatures. They are savvy, have sentiments, and are in finished control of their choices anyway are disturbed by the feeling of themselves. (Gill, R).
What happens to an individual at death?
For Christians the appropriate response originates from the Bible. Hebrews 9:27 states, ‘Similarly as individuals are bound to bite the dust once, and after that to confront judgment.’ (Heb. 9:27). This implies after an individual enters the afterlife they will confront judgment. Just the individuals who have acknowledged Christ as their Lord and savior will go into Gods realm. The individuals who have not will be thrown down into the pool of fire. The Sikh conviction is that each individual experiences numerous resurrections. When they are conceived as a human the spirit is near the finish of resurrection. At death the spirit of every individual is decided by God and he can decide to resurrect the spirit. On the off chance that God decides the spirit is sufficiently unadulterated, it can rest with him.
Why is it possible to know anything at all?
God has given his kin the intelligence to know the things of the world. Christians have understanding from ministers and the direction of others. Since people were made with a mind the Sikh are furnished with information
Christians can look to Gods scriptural lessons to translate directly from right or wrong. Christians go to the holy book to discover answers to life’s troublesome inquiries. For the Sikh, numerous answers and guidance can be found in the book of Guru Granth Sahib.
God made us as a result of his interminable love for us. Jeremiah 31:3 states, ‘I have adored you with an everlasting adoration.’ (Jer. 31:3). Another explanation we were made is to satisfy Gods unceasing arrangement. This arrangement incorporates Christians delivering others to Christ. As indicated by Sikhism the explanation of presence is to get one with God. Master Granth Sahib Ji says, ‘This human body has been given to you. This is your opportunity to meet God. Every single other work are of no utilization. Join the sacred gathering and think about the Name of God’ (Real Sikhism, 2016).
Critical common components
Christianity is a monotheism confidence in the God in paradise. God is triune, which means he is three of every one. God the father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God made the sky and earth and all that is on it including individuals. God made man and woman, such as Adam and Eve in the image of himself. They lived in the Garden of Eden and were directed not to eat from the tree of information on great and underhandedness. In any case, they were misdirected and decided to sin. They were prohibited from the Garden of Eden. They were never again to have unceasing life on earth however would one day bite the dust. Because of their wrongdoing, they got isolated from God. This is the reason God sent his child Jesus to be conceived of a virgin named Mary. Jesus strolled among the individuals of the earth serving them and indicating the supernatural occurrences of God. It was God’s arrangement for Jesus to be executed and afterward raise from the dead on the third day. On account of Jesus penance Christians can discover salvation through Christ by setting their trust in him. This salvation is by God’s elegance not through acts of kindness or deeds. Christians accept that their reclamation in Christ is the best approach to paradise and spares them from the searing pits of hellfire.
Sikhism is the fifth biggest religion on the planet. They additionally accept there is one God. They accept he is a similar God for all individuals everything being equal. Significance is put on the instructing of the past Sikh masters. The conviction is that God and masters have consolidated and they are the maker is shown through them. The Sikh trust in resurrection. There are a progression of resurrections until the spirit gets human. Genuine salvation is acquired through acceptable deeds and carrying on with a model life so one may converge with God. Carrying on with a model life is appeared by dealing with one’s family unit, making a legit living and avoiding sins and the enticements of the world. Sikhism has confidence in racial and sexual orientation equity and regard all religions. Sikhism doesn’t have clerics, they are allowed to adore through supplication and readings of the Guru Granth Sahib at home or in a Sikh sanctuary. God is at the focal point of their lives in all that they do. They endeavor to carry on with a fair life, keeping otherworldly and transient commitments consistent. (Prologue to Sikhism, 2011).
Spiritual perspectives of healing
Profound recuperating includes the brain, body and soul. My soul can impact my brain and my mentality impacts my body. What I mean by this is on the off chance that I am experiencing a sickness I will look for God for protection. When I reach out to God for restoration the procedure of healing has just started. The information that god will restore me alleviates my mind and the positive reasoning positively affects my body to heal. Other worldly restoration isn’t exclusively strict based. I sometimes may depend on drugs to help with the illnesses that are available. Different devices to use to help in recovering are blessing’s with oil, contemplation, listening to quieting music and being in a quieting domain.
Restoration is something fundamental to all people regardless of the religion. Without restoration one would not overcome illness. With the goal for healing to happen it requires physical, mental and otherworldly angles. At the point when somebody has a disease they not just depend on the doctor to ‘fix’ them. Coming up with next process includes basic segments to all convictions: the conviction of a divine being, ancestral tradition, holy pledge/understanding between the god and mankind, saviors/holy people, hallowed writings, images, areas, objects and Sacred ceremonies, like a church organization or fundamentalists. (UCADIA, 2010).
Understanding of the diversity of faith
There are different convictions among human services laborers and their patients. It is basic for the medicinal services suppliers to get social equipped. Remember that while treating a patient that holds an alternate conviction from your own to treat that individual with pride and regard, be mindful to their convictions and practices and give them grace. In finishing this task I have come to understand that the entirety of the religions share regular elements. There are several religions and social practices far and wide. It isn’t plausible to be acclimated with each and every conviction. With the information that all religions share common parts, medical caretakers and others medicinal services suppliers will have the option to draw on the similarity and use what they know to think about their patients. The view of God is different to all individuals in all countries. Most religions discover comfort in their God when they are down on luck. In the medicinal services setting, individuals from all foundations need to realize they are being thought about as indicated by their conviction as well as values and with a typical shared regard that all foundations merit.
