Respond to the quotation, explaining two valid arguments for and against or solely against or for. Certainly begin by citing some general beliefs and then possibly focus on a single religious tradition: me, Christianity or Islam.

For example:

Although many religious traditions dispel pro-equality beliefs, a religious believer may agree with the quotation. Inequality is widespread, as well as suffering across the world and even the unity of religion cannot resolve all inequity.

However, a religious believer may disagree with the quotation. The Ten Commandments in Christianity form a basis to achieve equality, and religious figures such as Martin Luther King have proven that inequality can be overcome against odds. Every religious believer has a duty to sought for equality.

NB: your reasoning does not need to be in such detail, but just ensure you make two valid points

Ah! I hated this question and my teacher said that they aren't likely to include the phrase 'secular' again, because it threw so many candidates. Secular refers to non-believers, so it's basically a question arguing for and against religion's relevance. For example:


A religious believer would disagree that British contemporary society is secular. Many British people have a religious faith and many to come will have so too, because the religious spirit is timeless and undying. Religious faith encourages shared happiness and charity.

However, the argument against this statement is that there are more and more agnostics in our society, religion is reducing in scope and many consider holy texts such as the Qur'an and the Bible considered to be outdated by many.

For B questions, you can basically follow a PEED structure for a guaranteed four marks(if you make relevant points);

P - Point - Some christians organisations work for justice by helping and giving aid to the poor who are struck by poverty

E - Evidence - An example of this is christian aid, they support people in poorer countries by giving them short term and long term aid and education so that they may have a better life

E- Explain - They do this because the bible tells them to "treat others as they want to be treated" and "love thy neighbour" and this might inspire them to strive for equality and justice.

D - Develop - They do this to follow the example of jesus, who was righteous and treated everyone equally.


My answer is not perfect as there is probably a much better example for justice as this example fits more into equality. Also there are probably more relavant quotes however the point I'm trying to get across is the structure. To answer B questions effectively, just break it down into these 4 parts.

For the 'British society question' you can talk about how Queen Elizabeth is protestant and religious? Because anything that the Queen does or says can be used as evidence for christianity.

It can be, although not necessarily. According to the mark scheme, an answer need not focus on a particular faith but must explore the impact of faith.

In other words, you can answer it from Christianity and/or Islam viewpoint, or a non-specific general viewpoint.

Good luck tomorrow

Vocation is a calling from God to do something. It is, to a religious believer, responding to God (so if a question comes up tomorrow about responding to God, certainly mention vocation). My answer to the question would be:

Vocation is the calling from God to a religious believer to carry out acts of devotion. A Christian may respond to vocation by becoming a priest, to solemnly devote their life to God. A religious believer may respond to vocation by using their special talents to good effect, such as becoming a doctor to support the sanctity of life.

Suppose "religion is always portrayed as negative" as a part (e) question. Some points I'd include would be that:

- Many Muslims believe Islam is unfairly portrayed by the media
- There is a disproportionate coverage of Islamic terror than other religiously-motivated terror
- The media associates Islamic terror with Islam as a whole
- BUT many Muslims simply ignore the negative portrayal/many Muslims are unaware of negative portrayal.
- Often, the media unfairly portray religion by conforming to or creating stereotypes of religious culture.
- The media can create prejudice, but equally, it can highlight prejudice against religion.
- Coverage of religious ceremonies arguably portrays the strength or solidarity of religion.
- Religious believers often see religious figures such as the Pope treated with respect and compassion.
- Religious culture is respected for holy books that are at their core, such as the Qur'an and the Bible.

Forming a conclusion, I'd probably argue that in many respects, religion is (often times unfairly) negatively portrayed (by the media and related sources), but also that religion is also respected for its culture, religious figures and the holy books that are associated.

"belivers stand up firmly to justice as witness for allah even if it is against your parents or relations"
From the Qur'an, 4:135 "O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives."

Essentially, every Muslim must, at the command of Allah, treat everyone justly. It is a quotation to cite in questions about equality; how Allah commanded every Muslim to be aware of injustice and act against it at every cost. It also incorporates ideals about wealth, that if you "yourself" are wealthy, you are compelled by Allah to do good with your wealth. (All wealth is a gift from Allah.)

There are many more interpretations, and this only covers the basics. Hope this helped
