Hey,

I'm doing the RS paper privately tomorrow, but I'm unsure as to how I'm meant to answer the contrasting beliefs question. It says 2 contrasting ways/beliefs, but my tutor told me that there should be one contrast between the 2 contrasting paragraphs.

Eg 2 Contrasting ways in which Christmas is celebrated by Christians
Para 1: Religiously (eg carols/service)
Para 2: As a holiday (eg presents)

However, I've heard others say that 2 or more contrasts should be made between the paragraphs, as it's 2 contrasting ways.

Eg 2 contrasting ways in which Christians worship
Christians belonging to denominations such as Orthodox worship by attending liturgical worship in a church such as that of Eucharist where it follows a set pattern. During liturgy a priest may perform certain rituals of significance such as they receive bread and wine which they believe is the body and blood of Christ respectively.
Christians belonging to other denominations such as Quakers perform informal worship carried out sometimes in someone’s home. There is no set order and pattern. They often worship in silence until feel the urge to read a passage of bible or to share their own thoughts.
(Contrasts are where and how ie Church/Home and Liturgical/Informal)

What are your thoughts?

Hi,

For the 4 mark questions, there only needs to be one distinct 'constrast.' However contrasting only means different, not necessarily polar opposites. The example which you have given (the contrasting ways of worship) is a perfectly fine answer, but technically there is no need for two such contrasts (i.e you could get away with not mentioning the location of each worship, although it is a nice detail to add).

Hope this clears up your Q.
