Learn About World Religion: Top Twitter Feeds

Religion has a massive influence on global affairs, from business, to politics, to the daily lives of billions of people, so those who choose to study theology are studying more than just old stories and traditions, they’re studying what humanity is, and what it can become. While students of theology often pursue the deepest knowledge of the faith that they subscribe to, it is important for anyone studying faith and religion to gain a broader perspective on the world’s religions.

Judaism

Judaism is a monotheistic religion with several thousand years of history. The main text that provides the teachings and traditions of Judaism is the Hebrew Bible, parts of which are incorporated into the Christian Bible’s Old Testament. Though Judaism is a prominent world religion, it has relatively few members compared to Hindu, Islam, or Christianity. About half of Jewish people live in Israel, a place of great historical significance in Jewish history.

Islam & Sufi

Islam is the second largest religion in the world, with most of its members residing in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Islamic practice is based on the Qur’an, a holy book that Muslim’s believe to be the unvarnished word of God. The main denominations of Islam, Sunni and Shi’a, have historically had conflict in parts of the world where populations of both denominations live nearby or in the same space. A third denomination, Sufi, has far fewer followers, and is thus less publicized and less well understood to those outside Islam.

Various Faiths

The line between faith, belief system, and religion is blurry at best, and at times it is downright impossible to find. Rastafarianism, Pagan practices, Wicca, and other ways of life all incorporate elements that resemble religious practice, and whether a practitioner defines him or herself as religious, faithful, spiritual, or none of the above, is a highly individual choice.
