Global Beliefs

A comparison of Global beliefs or religions would begin with the

definition of a word that many who inhabit our planet would

claim describes the highest priority in their daily lives,

next to a place to live and food.


For some, faith or religion, is supreme, placed above all else

and one could or should be willing to die to defend it.

For others, faith is seen as more of a responsibility and a duty.


Religion or faith, can be a source of great comfort in

desperate times and give one hope when there is little else.
