1. Research The Topic
Do we even have to tell you this? If you want to do a fine essay on this subject, you need to research it. While Christianity is one of the biggest religions on the planet, there are still things to be said about it. Yes, churches and monasteries are all over the place, and one would have thought that you can’t add anything to the plate but it’s possible.
If you research the topic properly, the best things you can add are your view of the matter, and a text imbued with your emotions. The basics are well known about our Lord Jesus Christ and the religion that follows him. So, when you do this essay, make sure that you touch on the subject originally. This can be done if you want to go give yourself to writing.
2. Start From The Basics
When it comes to Christianity and Religion, it is vital to stick to the basics. Religion went through a lot of changes during the years. The best way to go about it, especially if you’re not too religious, is to start your essay with the origins of the religion itself. In this case, you can talk about the first religions, and not particularly about Christianity.
Of course, it’s best to avoid fictive tails about the First Men or Andals, Old Gods and The New Ones, from The Song of Ice and Fire. Stick to the facts, and don’t move away from the source of the religion and the books that follow its development.v
3. Choose a Writing Spot
When it comes to religious texts, you might find yourself in need of more inspiration than usual. Luckily you can find it with more ease than you usually do. How so? Well, most religions do not exist without places of praying. You have churches, monasteries, Mosques, and Synagogues. If inspiration is what you’re lacking, now you know where to find it. It doesn’t matter what you believe or do you even believe in a certain deity, or even if you’re a member of the religious organization.
Places, where religious people worship their Gods, are places built by architects and visionaries who knew what they were doing. Even if you’re not a religious person, you can easily find inspiration in a beautiful church for example. There’s a piece opt be found within the walls of every religious building and that could be precisely what you’re looking for.
4. Beware of Sources
This is where things get messy. Religion is a vast subject. Everyone and everybody have written something about it. Most of it is factual. Some of it is fiction and personalized opinion of an individual. This is why you must know who are your sources. Sticking to the older religious books might not be possible, regardless of your religion, so finding new, modern, but factual sources could pose an issue.
When it comes to Christianity and religion in general, you must be careful in stating the true story, and your opinion too, but not straying too far away from the subject as it could easily create a debate with your peers. A debate is welcomed, don’t get us wrong, but you need to be able to stand behind what you wrote. This is why you must have proper sources.
Precision! It is what matters the most when it comes to religious texts. As you know, most religions are over thousands of years old. Some of the early names used in most religions are not used anymore. This could pose an issue with writing and spelling. That’s why you need to be extra careful when creating your essay.
You’ll lose a lot of credibilities if you get even one name or term wrong. Some of the primary issues that every religion has are the different views on the names and places in the early texts tied to Islam and Christianity. When it comes to religion, the last thing you want to do is to cause controversy. Remember that.
