AgreeEveryone should have the right to make their own minds up on issues such as abortion without having others people’s views forced upon us. Most people now believe in autonomy, were you have total control over your own life. In Britain today we are living in a secular society, which means we are a non-religious community. Only a small percentage of people in England are Christians so why should they decide what is right.DisagreeThere is nothing wrong with trying to influence what other people believe. At the end of the day, they do not have to listen to you.
They do not have to listen to you but at least you know, as a Christian, that you have tried to help them. Even if they do not take any notice. Christians are called upon to go out and preach their message to the whole of the world.
In Mark 16:9-20, Jesus said to his disciples to, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all of creation.Whoever does not believe will be condemned”. If they did not try to influence others then they would be going against God. But trying to influence others, you are showing that you love them.
In Mark 12: 31-32, Jesus said that the second greatest commandment was ” to love your neighbour as you love yourself”. You are showing your love for them by trying to make their lives better. By trying to influence people, you are showing your care for them.ConclusionI agree with this statement because even religious people have many different opinions, which are probably the same as the range of opinions amongst any people. Christians cannot make others accept their position. Everyone has a right to make up their own mind. However, Christians feel that these issues are so important that they should try to make people think about what they are doing and also consider different points of view.
Christians themselves have different views about abortion and euthanasia. However, they all take the issues very seriously.Many do not try to force their views on to others. Those who have strong views might try to persuade others that they are right and in the best interests of society. No one has any right to tell people what to do if they are not in that situation. Religious practices and moral issues are something that people argue about and often cause disagreements.
