Religious Approaches to Ethical Issues This is the assignment description that was given to me:
There are a lot of problems in the world. How can five world religions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism) and indigenous traditions of the world help?
They offer guidance for deciding what is most important and how to act on what we value. This guidance is first expressed in the traditional sources of the religion, modeled by historical and modern leaders, and reinforced through repeated religious rituals that remind believers of what is important.
For this essay on the War ethical issue explain how you, an ideal member of the Buddhism religion, determine HOW to respond to this issue. Include the historical sources of moral teachings in the religion, the key concepts related to moral discernment, major figures that people look to as examples, and religious practices and rituals that remind you of what to value and how to act accordingly.
War: Wars cause massive devastation that lasts for generations. They kill individuals and destroy communities. Is war ever morally permissible and, if yes, what are the conditions of a permissible war?
