CHRISTIAN BELIEFS
"nothing is impossible with God'' - Bible -- this shows the christian belief that God is omnipotent
God is just, this would teach Christians to also be just and eradicate injustice.
God is benevolent - all loving ''God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son"
God is omniscient - all knowing
These qualities might be asked for in a 2 mark question or in a 1 mark question
Reference Jesus' baptism for christian practices should you be asked about infant/adult baptism. Catholics say infant baptism because we were all born with 'original sin' (Adam and Eve's sin) where as in the baptist church they do adult baptism because Jesus was baptised as an adult, also its more meaningful because the adult is choosing to be baptised.
Jesus' baptism can also be used in the Christian belief section about the Trinity. " When Jesus [son] came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit [holy spirit] descending on him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven [Father], "You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased" - Bible BY THE WAY JUST PARAPHRASE THIS OR JUST SAY JESUS' BAPTISM, THE EXAMINER WILL GET IT.
Christian beliefs on creation, in Genesis it describes how God created the world in 6 days and rested on the 7th. Some Christians called creationists would literally believe this and other Christians may not. Such as those who believe in fine tuning (the idea that the big bang could have been too strong or too weak and so God initiated it and made it just right) this could come up as a 12 mark question or as a 5 mark question asking for two contrasting beliefs on creation.
Evidence that Jesus was God is that he came from a Virgin. Also the fact that he performed miracles.
What Jesus' resurrection means to Christians: Good triumphs over evil this will help them face persecution and that they will be resurrected to so they wont be afraid of death. ~ can be a 4 mark question
Jesus' crucifixion teaches Christians that suffering is a part of life. And also God sending his one and only son to earth and sacrificed him shows his loving quality. His crucifixion is also saved Christians from human sin and brought people closer to God. ''Jesus died for our sins'' - Bible.
Atonement - Jesus restored the relationship between God and humanity - can be a 1 mark question
In terms of the afterlife: Some Christians believe that it is just your soul that goes into eternal life with God. Only the soul gets raised from the dead. Problems with this is that there will be no communication or ability to do anything
Other Christians believe both the body and soul are resurrected. This is why Christians prefer to be buried rather than being cremated. Problems with this is that if heaven is perfect then people ought to be able to live with new perfect bodies. What would happen if someone was involved in an accident that caused damage to their bodies?
This can be a 5 mark on contrasting beliefs about the afterlife OR a 12 mark question.
Who goes heaven or hell? Some Christians believe you must believe in Jesus to go heaven. Others believe it is your actions that save them and as long as they are a good person this is what is important. (This is referred to as a person's works). The majority however, believe you must both believe in Jesus and lead a good life.
In the middle ages Christians thought of Hell as an actual place of everlasting torture for people who had turned their back on Christianity or had committed evil deeds. Most Christians now, believe that hell is a place that exists for non-Christians - a poetic way to describe eternity without God.
Most find it difficult that an all loving God would have a place of eternal punishment.
''Throw them into the fiery furnace'' - bible

This is for the first half of the Christianity paper, if you guys want me to do it for the Christian practices half let me know, I could also do Islam.

ISLAMIC BELIEFS
Oneness of God (Tawhid) "You alone do we worship" Qur'an. This belief is also reinforced in the Shahadah ''There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet''. Noone can picture God and this is one of the reasons there are no images of God in a mosque.
Nature of God. He is the Greatest ''Allahu Akbar'' Muslims believe He is so great he is beyond human understanding.
The qualities of God are seen in the 99 names of Allah, some being ''The Merciful'' and ''The Beneficent''
He is Immanent which is the believe that God is present in and involved with life on Earth. Might get asked on beliefs on God's benevolence ''Allah is nearer to man than his jugular vein'' this shows humans are near to him and he cares about them.
He is transcendant, beyond all things. Because of this, the worst sin a human can commit is Shirk which is associating other Gods with Allah i.e having multiple Gods. Islam is a monotheistic religion. Belief in one God - this might be a 1 marker
God is omnipotent (all powerful) ''Be'' - Qur'an all God has to say is Be and it shall be.
In Shi'a Islam the term adalat is also used to describe Justice. - can be a 1 marker. God is just and fair and judges humans actions, rewarding the good and punishing the bad.
SHI'A VS SUNNI
Shi'a muslims believed Ali should've been the Prophet's successor and leader of Islam however Sunnis believes it was rightly so that Abubakr became the Caliph as he was elected.
Shi'a muslims pray 3 times a day whereas Sunnis pray 5 times.
Shi'a Islam believes that there have been 12 Imams (leaders), the last is Mahdi who they believe is actually still alive.
Sunni muslims believe that Mahdi has not been born yet.
Two angels you should know about: Jibril and Mika'il.
Jibril (meaning: Angel of holiness) was mentioned in the Qur'an 5 times. He was there to give the revelations of the Qur'an to the Prophet Muhammad and he also helped the Prophet Abraham/Ibrahim (doesn't matter how you spell it) when he was throw into a fire by cooling it.
Mika'il is the giver of rain and sustenance. He was one of the first to bow to Adam and he provided Muhammad with water. He will also weigh up people's good and bad deeds on the Day of Judgement. Potential 5 marker, comparison of two angels in Islam.

Predestination - Idea that God knows or determines everything that will happen in the universe ''Only what God has decreed will happen to us." - Qur'an
SUNNI & PREDESTINATION
God has already determined everything that will happen in the universe. He has written down everything that will happen in a 'book of decrees'
God creates all things, including the actions of his creatures, so they must act according to his will.
SHI'A & PREDESTINATION
God knows everything that is going to happen, but that does not mean that he decides what is going to happen.
People still have free will, so they can make their own choices.

LIFE AFTER DEATH
Akirah - everlasting life after death (potential 1 marker)
Muslims believe when you die you will stay in the grave until the Day of Judgement. The Qur'an teachers that those who follow the words of Allah will live happily in a wonderful garden - Janna (paradise) and those who do not will be punished in Jahannam (hell)
However, Allah is always merciful (remember one of his 99 names is 'The Merciful') and even a bad person may eventually reach Paradise after they have been punished. However those who commit Shirk (associating Allah with other Gods) will not leave Jahannam.
"Then shall every soul be paid what it earned"
Importance of belief in life after death: In Islam, this life is seen as a test. Therefore, life after death is necessary to ensure that people who were good are rewarded, and people who are bad are punished. Life after death also helps Muslims overcome the fear of death. (This can be a 5 marker on how Life after death (Akirah) influences Muslims today).
IMPORTANT PROPHETS
Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) : Last prophet sent by Allah
Prophet Adam (pbuh) : First man on Earth and first prophet of Islam
Prophet Ibrahim (pbuh): Grew up where his people worshipped idols (statues), he tested the power of these idols by trowing them into a river and of course, they sank. He became convinced that there was just one true power: a single God, and Allah called him to be a prophet.
Potential 12 marker, might be a statement like: "Adam is the most important prophet" yada yada
HOLY BOOKS IN ISLAM
The Qur'an
The Psalms
The Gospels
The Torah ~ potential 2 marker
FIVE PILLARS OF ISLAM
Shahadah (translated above) - Declaration of faith
Salah - prayer
Zakah - Charity (2.5% of income after expenses paid)
Sawm - Fasting
Hajj - Pilgrimage
potential five marker e.g Fasting is the most important act of Faith in Islam
Shi'a Muslims have khums where they give 20% of their income

To convert to Islam a person needs to sincerely say the shahadah in front of Muslim witnesses. It is one of the first words Muslim babies hear and is also the last words of a Muslim when they die. Potential question: Importance of Shahadah.
Greater Jihad: A personal struggle, this might be to wake up from bed in the early morning for morning prayers. (Our jihad right now might be studying for our GCSE exams xdd)
Lesser Jihad: Self defence should Muslims be attacked. There are 9 criteria which must be met. Some of this include: Women and children not involved must not be harmed. Do not destroy buildings of worship of ANY religion e.g churches and synagogues or temples and do not damage crops/harvests.

He has and if need be I’ve generalised my ones for Christianity
Death & the afterlife:

- "So God created man in His own image"
- "The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and blew into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being."
- "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies."
- "I believe in... the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting." (Apostles' Creed)
- "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me."

Religion & science:

- "In the beginning, God made the heavens and the earth" (Genesis)
- "So God made the wild animals according to their kinds" (argument against evolution)
- "God blessed them and said to them 'be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.'" (Humans given dominion)
- "Do not cut the trees down by putting an axe to them, because you can eat their fruit. Do not cut them down. Are the trees of the field people, that you should besiege them?"
- "Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these."

Nature of God:

Trinity...
- "No one gets to the FATHER except through me"
- "You are my SON with whom I am well pleased"
- "The HOLY SPIRIT descended from heaven like a dove"
- "Your body is a temple for the HOLY SPIRIT"



To be honest, I'll have forgotten them all again by tomorrow afternoon! Also I don't seem to have any quotes for the "Good and Evil" unit? :s
