1. Religion & why it makes a difference

This video is a collection of the five questions under this theme:

1.1  Why is religion a thing?

1.2 Why do people engage with these concepts that can’t be proven?

1.3 Why are there so many different faiths/religions?

1.4 Some find an extreme expression of faith attractive. Why is that?

1.5 What’s appealing to you about the Christian story?

Here are some passages from Scripture to consider when you watch this…

Matthew 6:1-34 - How to pray and what religion should be like 

1 Corinthians 13:1-13 - The gift of love 

1 Corinthians 3  - Getting on with each other in the church 

Mark 12:28-34 – Jesus' fave commandments 

James 1:22-27 – What might ‘pure’ religion look like? 

There are so many more! Can you think of some?
