    Talking about religion is a complex issue. However polite you are, in the end you always get into trouble; I speak for myself James.

    Excellent lesson; I learned new vocab and useful expressions.

    I believe in Me and that there exists a supreme being. I hold on to my beliefs and fight for them.

    That’s it for me now!

    Regino

      Yeah, Ur right

      Trollergamer

It was Ok , James . But you have forggoten to mention about yourself. Who are you in terms of religion?

proverbial horse

    If you listen to his words with attention,you will easily understand what is his faith.

    Pippa33

    I think it doesn’t matter cause the video about how to get conversation about religion.

    Arkadion

    if you hear carefully you come know when he said “we are spacial he means christen

    othman albakri

thx for your lesson James. You taught us well, and your voice was heard very clearly.

benkulino

You’re a couragous man to speak about religions in this difficult world. Thank you. I had a French’teacher who often asked us this question : if I am going to the Heaven, why my dog wouldn’t have the same right ?
He never told us what was his faith !

beernaard

Thanks James!!
Always a pleasure to watch your lessons ;)

I’m Islam but not orthodox. I thought Hindus go to temple because I live in Bali and my friends say pura is temple. Pura is Indonesian word.

    rashed sabra

Hello James sir. Thank u for the wonderful lesson. But I wish it would have been more better if u talked about a littke bit about Hinduism.
The second thing I want to note is that Hindus do have a shrine but there are many Hindu temples in India such as meenakshi temple in Madurai in Tamil nadu or sidhivinayak temple in Mumbai. The people who teaches us is a pundit in the Hindu religion. And we have many gods such as Lakshmi Krishna etc. Plus the holy book of Hindus is the bhagvad gita and it is one of the oldest religions. And we sing hymns in praise of gods and goddesses.
But overall the video was nice.

palakshi nautiyal

    No one interested in induism. This general lesson.

Nice lesson! Thank you,James!

Oksana Golovinova

Thanks a lot for the lesson James! It’s good to see you reminding people to respect other’s faiths because despite many of us already about it but many of us still forget or intentionally mock others just because they have another faith, religion or the way of living as you.
Have a good day James and everyone!

Basri

Hi James! This is first of your lessons in wich I andestend about … 8-9 words from 10 and I’ve got 9/10 right answers ! ) Thank you very match for your job !!! ) And Good louck ! Your student Vladislav.

Vladkabatkovich

Hi James. It’s hot here in Japan these days. How about in Canada?
Talking about religion is really difficult, sensitive, and complicated. Especially in Japan, we don’t talk about it so much in order to avoid getting in trouble. But as you said, many Japanese do believe in something like god such as existing in rivers, mountains, or even historical people are enshrined in shrines. Japan has so many gods in itself. I’ve heard there are 8 million gods in Japan. I don’t know if it’s true, but it’s said so.

juneriver

    So many gods! It means that everybody can have individual god, quite literally)) nice one!

    Kubanez

      Yes, it’s interesting :) There are all kinds of thoughts and legends, and 8 million gods (Yao yorozu no kami) is one of them. Maybe I think majority of Japanese don’t believe in particular religion, but as you said, most people might have their own God in their hearts. Meanwhile, of course there are Christians, Muslims, Buddhists or whatever. But they are fewer than other countries although there are so many temples, shrines, and churches in Japan.

      juneriver

        Which part of Japan are you living? I have a Japanese friend who came from near Osaka, and he is living in Australia. He is a Christian. Do you have faith that you follow?

        sunhoek

Religion, faith are so impotant stuff for the people! Religion tries to answer the most damned questions of every one person! So if you are really deep in the matter, debating questions of religion may be truelly awesome and funny)) Seeking truth can be so fascinatingly!

Kubanez

Thanks!

LarissaFB

    Welcome

    midomar

Thanks for this lesson.
I think lessons about religion words and technical words are very important. It is always so hard to find the right pronounceeven in dictionary.

It’s really a open minding lesson.
It’s my first lesson in EngVid and I really like it. Thank you.

YaSiang

Hi James! Thanks for this great video. It is very important to know how to talk about religion with others repectfully. I guess it is really importat to have an open mind when talking, not only about religion, but other topics like politics.

Aleachi

Ohh… thanks for this video, it’s so actual, and really exciting theme. :)

beaata

Thank you very much, great video and useful.

Rashake

Hello, James. It is a very interesting subject to talk about. I have watched the video twice, I liked it a lot. Thank you!

Júlio César L Sousa

I believe Mary(Catholic?) but not orthodox. So I sometimes go to a shrine on new year’s day. My desktop PC wallpaper is a picture of church. If my house is close to a famous church, I’d like to go… Religion or faith is complicated and difficult but interesting. Thank you for your lesson, James :)

A little doubt on the question “Do you believe in God?” Yes or No, that is the question, it doesn’t matter if you believe or not, the question is short, that was the doubt but very good explanation. Thanks a lot teacher James.

angardiobel

thanks james, and don’t worry man, you pronounced masjid good and no Muslim will kill you.

mazen mersal

Hi James, Thanks for the great lesson again. Do you have faith that you follow?

sunhoek

LILY

Hi james, i liked your lesson. I liked your topic about religion. Because, in this world have 5 religions. I think, you can talk about many topics again be sides religion. Because, i don’t want to someone not argue with the topic of you. Over all this topis is good.
By the way, i want to you for have a topic about Indonesia because i’m from Indonesia :) example : how about Indonesia? About the place for holiday and ect.
Thank you.

approved by engVid.
Thank you T. James. This is a very helpful lesson, I like it that I know about different faiths. I always want to learn about it. Here in Saudi Arabia, we are a very religious people, most of us are muslims so we don’t have conversations about other faiths. But I have to say something, I angered about your words ( don’t kill me). This idea about Muslims is wrong, we cannot related the doing of small group to a big religious with millions of its followers.

Noura1991

if you are a Christian you need to pitch the gospel to everyone because there is no salvation without Jesus. He said ” nobody come to God but only through Me/

dimitrynaz

thank u <3

lamia murad

There is another meaning of the word “orthodoxia”.
It is the name of the oldest Christian denomination (confession). It is greek word from forth century means “right belief”. This meaning is still valid.
Thank you for your labor.

IoannKo

According to you explanations, I understood that agnostics are the kind of atheists, because one reason we say agnostics are not the atheists because the can’t describe this higher power and so they do not believe. And atheists just do not believe in it, because they don’t believe. Where is my mistake. Sorry for my tediousness..Thank you James.

uJean

Great lesson James! You’re very diplomatic.

According to the comments above, I see this is always a controversial theme.

Surely, I’ll not tell if I have a belief or no.

Fabio Cicerre

    …or not.

Hi James, very good explanation I have got 10/10.
I think there is only one god, If there are many they would have been fighting each other,And the whole universal system would collapsed.

spider

    befor I had the same question too.later I think like this.maybe it will help you.a man ,who is a teacher,has many other characters,like he is also a father,a son,a brother,a student,a husband,a colleague,etc,but,actually ,to these people,he is the only person.just he has different character in front of different people.

The quiz is too easy. One thing you have not mentioned and this fath/belief/religion is much closer to you Mr. James. Is the african belief (candomblé). This belief evoque the power of nature such as river, sea, forest, etc. and some welcome human behaviors (kindness, justice,loyalty etc.).

Edmilson Medeiros
