Welcome to “Understanding Eastern Religions and the New Age Movement.” I am sure we have all wondered at times why there are so many different religions and what they believe. This class will look at some the major religions of the world, concentrating on the Eastern religions. But not only will we look at the various belief systems, we will also try to determine which view of the world is correct.
This first class talked about how to evaluate a “good” world view. We then looked at the Christian World View. In the following classes we will look at the world view of other religions and compare them to the Christian world view to see if we can determine which best describe reality.
