    YES
    NO
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    My Belief

    I believe very strongly in helping the less fortunate. We have been very blessed to have the things and wealth that we have today and we should work at shortening the gap between wealth and poverty. Just from my time at USD I have seen the large discrepancy between the rich and poor with college kids driving around their brand new BMW's while 20 minutes down the road in Tijuana many people are starving and without homes.

  2. Do you believe in the Christian concept of Original Sin?

    Original Sin is the Christian concept that all people are inherently sinful andJesus died for our sin. However, if you believe in Jesus you will be rid of all sin.

    Original Sin is the Christian concept that all people are inherently sinful andJesus died for our sin. However, if you believe in Jesus you will be rid of all sin.

    YES
    NO
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    My Belief

    I do not believe in the concept of original sin. I believe that someone does not contain sin until they commit a sinful act. An innocent newborn baby does not contain sin just because of mankind. I believe this because I've always been taught that everyone deserves the chance at a new start. If we were to judge someone for one mistake they had years and years ago that would be unfair.

  3. Do you believe in the Confuscian concept of Yin/Yang?

    Yin and Yang are the two aspects of Qi. Yin is all that is dark, heavy, cold, and moist such as the moon, earth, and female. Yang is what is light, dry, and warm such as the sun, masculinity, and activity. It is important to keep the Yin and Yang well balanced

    YES
    NO
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    My Belief

    I believe in Yin and Yang because I believe having balance in life is very crucial. You can't just focus on what aspect of life and ignore the others because you will become imbalanced and not live a full life. I really do believe you have to experience things from multiple sides and sometimes you need to have the good to appreciate the bad. I think the stressing of balance is very important in today's society. When I was filling out my college application it was about more than just did I have good grades but more so how did I balance school, sports, friends, family, jobs etc.

  4. Do you belief in the Hindu concept of Karma?

    The hindu belief of Karma is that everyne is dealt their circumstances in life (dharma). What is important is how you use what you are dealt with. If you do well you you will have higher karma in the next life. If you act contrarily to you dharma you will inherit bad karma in the next life.

    YES
    NO
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    My Belief

    I believe in Karma because I believe strongly that what we make of our lives is important. No one can control what situation you are born into, but you can control what you do with what you are given. Even if you don't believe in Karma from the reincarnation standpoint of betting your odds at a good next life, I know that I want the life I live to have an impact on the world. This being said, I hope that if I act positively while I'm on earth, it will in turn leave a lasting positive impression.

  5. Do you belief in the Buddhist concept of Anatman?

    Atman is the buddhist belief of no self. We are always changing and evolving.

    Atman is the buddhist belief of no self. We are always changing and evolving.

    YES
    NO
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    My Belief

    I do no believe in Anatman because I do believe in self. Even though humans are ever-changing that does not, to me, mean that we have no self or essence. I may experience something that changes my viewpoints on somethig, and therefore I am changed. However, my self, the spirit and stream of consciousness inside me is still the same. I think this because i feel that impermanence that the hindus speak of on a minor level does not affect our larger self. If I break a bone tomorrow, I'm still the same self I was yesterday.

  6. Do you believe in having in Sacred Writings such as the Torah?

    Judaism contains the Sacred writings of the Torah. The Torah can have three meanings: the 5 books of Moses, the entire bible, and the written scriptures and oral teachings.

    Yes
    No
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    My Belief

    I believe in not specifically the Torah, but Sacred Texts as a whole. I feel they are an important backbone of most religions. Personally I believe this because I feel when I have questions about life or faith I can find answers in my holy book and can look towards it as a way to further educate myself in living a positive light. While a holy book isn't a requirement for a religion, I know it helps me personally to have things written down, and set in stone.

  7. Do you believe in the Daoist practice of Qigong

    Qigong is the important practice of physical exercise within Daoism. It is important to maintain physical health along with mental health to truly live life to the fullest.

    YES
    NO
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    My Belief

    I believe that being in a good state physically helps rid your body of other problems as well. I know that after I have worked hard physically at Lacrosse practice or in the gym I have a much clearer mind. Lacrosse is my muse to have my body and spirit functioning the way it should.

  8. Do you believe Atheism?

    Atheism is the disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods.

    Atheism is the disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods.

    YES
    NO
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    My belief

    I do not believe in Atheism. Growing up in a Christian household I was always taught to believe in Jesus Christ as our lord and Savior. Was I allowed to open up to other religions including Atheism? Absolutely. I still remained a Christian because I think religion gives me a sense of purpose in life, guidelines to live a good life, and gives me a community to feel apart of. Could I get those as an Atheist, sure but for me Christianity and religion as a whole has provided me with a lot.
