    I'm currently doing the religion and war unit in RS for Unit 2 AQA Spec B. Could someone tell me if these religious points would be fine to use as answers? Thanks. I just want to know if the points are fine, as structuring the answer itself isn't a problem.

    M/Jan12/40552 Religious Studies B

    2 1 Give two reasons why a country might go to war. (2 marks)

    Political disagreement
    Threatened by the other country
    To fight for religious land

    2 2 Explain why some religious believers are pacifists. Refer to religious beliefs and
    teachings in your answer. (4 marks)

    They believe it is a duty in Christianity
    Love thy neighbor
    All created in Gods image
    Treat others how you want to be treated
    This means .... We should love everyone equally / we would be disrespecting Gods creations / we should treat each other how we would like to be treated
    Therefore .... We do so to avoid be judged by God / To be holy

    2 3 ‘Religious believers should never support terrorism.’
    What do you think? Explain your opinion. (3 marks)

    Treat others how we want to be treated
    Ummahs (Islam)
    It goes against Just War theory; it is not done for lawful purpose or to gain greater good

    2 4 Describe the work of one peacekeeping force. (3 marks)

    Peace One Day
    Influences 1 day of everyone putting down their guns regardless

    2 5 ‘Religious believers should be prepared to fight in a “Just War”.’
    Do you agree? Give reasons for your answer, showing that you have thought about
    more than one point of view. Refer to religious arguments in your answer. (6 marks)

    6 marker = 3 points with both view points and religion
    Agree - Love thy neighbor
    Disagree - Do not kill (10 commandments)
    Agree - Treat others how you want to be treated

    Everything seems great except for number 4 where you would need to mention a peacekeeping organisation. The UN would be the best example, look up where they are and some of the things they do to help. This will definitely get you a couple of extra marks.

    Thanx for putting these on, really helped me as i was given homework on this x

    number 5 does not seem right to me as they are all dissagree how does treat people how you want to be teated and love thy neighbour fit in with the catagory of you agreing that they should be prepared to fight in a just war. however they do fit in with thee dissagreing catagory
