Moral Scriptures of The Major Religions

Welcome to our wiki site!! This WIKI project takes the four main world religions and describes the specific morality points in each of them. Each religion is broken down and the scriptures are studied. We took the main religious books ( ex. the Bible and the Qu'ran) and display what lessons are told to teach followers how to live. This site is important because it not only brings out what the religions believe but also it explains how each follower should live their life. It takes the main religions on one basic site and investigates their life lessons.

As we did further investigation into this project we made several conclusions about the similarities among the four groups of religions. Christianity, Judaism, and Islam followers all believe that there is only one God and although Buddhism does not believe the Buddha was a God they follow his teaching. Both Judaism and Islam believe that Jesus was not a God. Judaism saw Jesus as a Rabi and Islam sees Jesus as one of its great prophets. All of the religions believe is some of the same moral codes. They all believe that their followers should not kill. All the religions believe in an after life. Judaism and Christianity believe that after you die you go to Heaven, Islam believes in a paradise known as Jannah, Hinduism's main theme is reincarnation after you die, and Buddhism believes that after you die you either go to Nirvana or you follow the path of reincarnation depending on how you lived your life.

These Myths are not just about what to expect from the afterlife, they are moral guides to living an ethical and rightous life. The Qu'ran, Bible, Torah, which means "teaching," Upanishads of Hinduism, and the Sutra's of Buddhism guide their believers in a peaceful and tolerant existence while living their natural lives. Sometimes described in stories called parables or proverbs, these lessons are meant to build a spirit of unity.
