Question by Kevin H: What are the major differences between Eastern Orthodox and Western Christianity?
What are the major differences between Eastern Orthodox and Western Christianity and protestantism?

Best answer:

Answer by bunnielove89
“The main difference between Eastern-Rite and Western-Rite Orthodoxy is culture based. In the Eastern part of the world, the main cultures we see in Orthodoxy are found in Russia, Greece, and the Arabs. In the Western part of the world, the main cultures we see in Orthodoxy are found in America and Europe. Each region, and each country, that finds itself holding fast to the Orthodox Christian Faith is in full communion with eachother on a Theological level. The culture may be different, and the leaders and administration may also be different; but the Faith and the teachings are the same. We all recognize the same saints, say the same prayers, and teach the same traditions and teachings handed down to us by Jesus Christ and His Apostles.”

^That is a quote from the source in the link. Personally I have no idea though =D

Best answer:

Answer by Crystal Gayle
This sounds like a homework or take home exam question. I’m not very keen on doing a student’s work for them. Do you have a specific question about the Enlightenment and how that might have impacted life? Otherwise, I suggest reading a broad essay/article on what the Enlightenment was, who the main thinkers were, and what rulers subscribed to this way of thinking. Also, look at the ways in which it changed gender roles/expectations and race relations.

Answer by Catzeyes
The Western world is shielded from many of the horrors which occurred in Afghanistan during the time in which was set. Many instances, such as Hassan’s rape, the scenes which show a woman being stoned to death and the severity of the abuse which causes Sohrab to make a suicide attempt, among others, are events that are quite alien to Western civilisation. Whilst we may hear of such events, we do not like to dwell on them for their awfulness, yet ‘The Kite Runner’ explains them clearly which opens a western reader’s eyes to such catatrophic events.

Question by Rob: What is the benefit of cultural diversity? Why has western civilization shifted to multiculturalism recently?
Im not making a judgement. I just fail to see the truth in the “strength in diversity” mantra. Perhaps one of you will help me see…
Tititata, I respect your religious belief (I am actually a christian but its slightly off-topic. Knowing the type online I am sure you will catch it for posting that.

Those are some good thoughts bizsmithy, and if no one posts better the 10 pts are yours.

Best answer:

Answer by Tititita
I believe, that the benefit of cultural diversity is because people are always looking for something new. They want a change, and are trying to fulfill their emptiness that they feel in their heart. They do not know that only Jesus Christ is the only one called to fulfill that emptiness in our heart.

One way that drive them to this change is by trying and going through differents religions and belief. That is one of the reason that they want to know and to shift to a different multicurtural civilization. They are looking for the unknown God, without knowing that their truly God is very close to them, the Lord Jesus Christ. It is not that they want a change. It is because they want and are trying to fulfill their emptiness in their heart. The way to do it is by trying some king of religion because they want to be happy. God give us happiness only through Jesus Christ. He is the only one that can fulfill our heart and then happiness will come to men. I do not know if this will answer your question. God bless you.
