Khan and the Bomb, Historical Subjugation
Qutb, who was a figurehead of the Muslim Brotherhood until his execution in 1966, promoted the controversial idea Takfir. He regarded virtually all self-styled Muslims as kafirs. Qutb intended to shock Muslims into religious re-armament. When taken literally, it had the effect of causing non-Qutbists, who claimed to be Muslim, in violation of Sharia law. This could potentially be considered apostasy from Islam; a crime punishable by death.
Qutbists sought to safeguard the world from impending Jahiliyya, which is a state of Godless ignorance. In doing so, militant groups disavowed capitalism, socialism, nationalism, and other practices they saw as non-Islamic, evil, and corrupt. Their resistance came in the form of a two-pronged attacked: preaching to convert and jihad to eliminate the structures of Jahiliyya.
Maududi teaches that Kufir literally means to cover or conceal. He believes that under Kufir, a man can still adhere to Islam, but his vision has been blurred and his intellect befogged. He is unable to see the obvious, reality becomes estranged from him and he gropes in the dark. Kufir is a form of ignorance, or, rather, it is ignorance. The irony is that Maududi’s teachings suggest that extremists like Qutb, represent a vanguard for the very thing they seek to destroy.
In the late 19th century, many Protestants in the US and Canada were appalled by the poverty level and the low standard of life. In response, the Social Gospel movement provided a religious rationale for action to address those concerns. Activists hoped that through emphasizing public health and mandating education, the poor could develop skills necessary to improve the quality of their moral lives.
The movement applied Christian ethics to social problems. Theologically, followers sought to operationalize the Lord's Prayer (Matthew 6:10). They typically were Post-millennialist and believed the Second Coming could not happen until humankind rid itself of social evils through human effort.
After World War I, many were left disillusioned with the ideals of Social Gospel, and so the movement began to decline. It had resurgence, however, during the New Deal and again in the Civil Rights Movement. It continues to inspire modern movements among Protestants, Presbyterians, and Methodists, concerning labor, education, poverty and other aspects of social justice.
A City upon a Hill is a phrase from the parable of Salt and Light in Jesus's Sermon on the Mount. In Matthew 5:14, he says: "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden."
Prohibition in the United States was a nationwide ban on the sale, production, importation and transportation of alcoholic beverages that remained in place from 1920 to 1933.The dry movement, led by rural Protestants in the Democratic and Republican parties. Prohibition was mandated under the Eighteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Although it was repealed in 1933, in many ways it set the precedent for the attitudes surrounding the War on Drugs.
In Roe v. Wade the Court ruled that a right to privacy under the due process clause of the14th Amendment extended to a woman's decision to have an abortion. In disallowing many state and federal restrictions on abortion it prompted a national debate that continues today. The argument centers on what the role should be of religious and moral views in the political sphere. Roe v. Wade reshaped national politics, dividing much of the nation into pro-choice and pro-life camps, while activating grassroots movements on both sides.
Clouser defines religious belief as a belief in something as divine or a belief about how to stand in proper relation to the divine, and where something is believed to be divine provided it is held to be unconditionally nondependent. His definition suggests that everyone holds a religious belief, even if unconsciously. While a world without organized religion is fathomable, by this definition it is impossible to live in a world free from religious belief.
Shari’a is the moral code and religious law of Islam. There are two primary sources of Sharia law: the precepts set forth in the Quranic verses (ayahs), and the example set by the Islamic prophet Muhammad in the Sunnah. Where it has official status, Sharia is interpreted by Islamic judges (qadis) with varying responsibilities for the religious leaders (imams).
In the Ottoman Empire, before 1850, the Qanun, a secular legal system, co-existed with the religious law of Sharia. During this time, however, the Ottoman legal system saw substantial reform. This included fair and public trial for all accused regardless of religion. It also created a system of separate competences for religious and civil matters, while validating the testimony of non-Muslims.
Mostly, Roman Catholicism tend to charge Protestants with antinomianism. This has resulted in the persecution of the Jesuits. Charges of antinomianism have also been claimed by Protestant camp as well, like Martin Luther who accused Johannes Agricola of antinomianism. Other Protestant groups have also been accused, including the Anabaptists and Mennonites. Calvinists have also drawn charges of antinomianism.
Born in 354 AD, St. Augustine would contribute to the Patristic Era. He believed that the grace of Christ was indispensable to human freedom. He taught that Original Sin was transmitted by concupiscence, which he regarded as the passion of both, soul and body. He saw this as making humanity a massa damnata (mass of perdition, condemned crowd), which weakened the power of freewill. Consequently, he saw it as a duty of the State to compel religious belief.
On the other hand, Locke was lucky enough to be born in the age of Enlightenment. He lived in a period where he could dissent without the threat of having his head cut off and his philosophy suggests that he strongly preferred this period to the last. In Locke’s Letter Concerning Toleration, he principally argues that government should not use violence to coerce people to any one religion. He thought that no man was bound to the magistrate. Instead, he argues that religious societies are voluntary organizations with no right of authority over any people outside of their group. Locke believed in little need or demand for a strong relationship between religion and politics.
John Locke considers the state of nature in his Second Treatise on Civil Government. To him, in the state of nature all men are free "to order their actions, and dispose of their possessions and persons, as they think fit, within the bounds of the law of nature. Locke believed this provided us with Reason, which teaches that "no one ought to harm another in his life, liberty, and or property"; and that transgressions of this may be punished. This view is partly deduced from Christian belief – namely in that all men are a children of God and subject to obedience.
These terms represent different beliefs concerning the order of events in eschatology or the end of times, specifically between Second Coming of Jesus and the Millenium. Premilllianlists believe that Jesus will literally and physically be on the earth for his millennial reign, at his second coming. Postmillennialist interpret the Book of Revelations to signify his return after the Millennium. Politically this is important because it shapes the perspectives of citizens. The groups share a religion, however, they live their lives on a different timeline and to a different end.
