10 PRACTICE EXAM PAPERS: SPECIFICATION B Paper 3: Area of Study 3 Religion, Philosophy and Social Justice Option 3A Catholic Christianity Page 50 Question 1 (a) The event happened by chance; there was no cause; the universe is still expanding; it happened roughly 13.7 billion years ago. (b) It saw the Holy Spirit descend to Earth following Jesus ascension; it allowed the 12 disciples to act within the power of God. (c) Science is now able to explain many things not known when the Bible was written; advances in technology have allowed scientists much greater insights; they can now see further into space and more closely at cellular level; this has, for some, raised questions about the accuracy of the Genesis creation story. (d) Catholics believe that God has always existed; He was the cause for the universe; God may have used the Big Bang to start the creation of the universe; they also believe that the Trinity are equal parts of the same single God; despite the common mistake God the Father did not create God the Son; the Holy Spirit was not created at Pentecost; Jesus was fully human and fully God, even at His birth; He had been present at the start of the universe and became flesh when He came to Earth. Page 51 Question 2 (a) To express love; to declare a commitment; to have sex; to have children. (b) They may feel closer to God by experiencing something of Him; confirm a belief that they did not have before; reassure them about the afterlife. (c) Heaven is described in many different ways throughout the Bible; it is depicted as being the place where God dwells; there are numerous descriptions in Revelation; hell is described as being the absence of God; hell is where Lucifer dwells with the fallen angels; the presence of heaven in the Bible helps to guide how Catholics live their lives in terms of judgement. (d) Many near-death experiences share similarities supporting their authenticity; a tunnel, a bright light, seeing their bodies below them, watching key events from their lives; sometimes visiting heaven and hell whilst hearing the voice of God without seeing Him; these experiences can never be verified; they are always going to be personal only; in terms of evidence, they are often only seen as proof by those who already believe in God; Catholics could argue that the supernatural shows that there is something beyond this life; as medical thinking cannot explain near-death experiences, it strengthens the argument that God is responsible for them. Page 52 Question 3 (a) Confess sins committed; seek forgiveness; seek guidance for penance from their priest; Jesus called upon people to confess their sins. (b) Follows the teachings of the Bible and instructs all followers to do the same; Pope Francis has spent much of his time with those on the extremes of society, following the example of Jesus. (c) The Bible recognises that everyone but Christ sins; it is likely that all Catholics sin each week; confession is available for Catholics throughout the week, and can be used whenever sin is committed; even if no mortal sin has been committed, sins of the heart may have been committed; confession allows a Catholic to draw nearer to God. (d) The liturgy is primarily based on scripture; the Bible will never be outdated as it is the Word of God; Catholics find comfort and security in the routine of the liturgy; it allows them to find God in the same ways each week and to show their beliefs in almost any Catholic church without having to learn a different way to worship; Catholics used to follow the liturgy when it was written in Latin; translating the liturgy to English brought much opposition; however, almost all Catholics are now able to follow the liturgy in their own language and worship God much more easily; some Catholic churches have changed and adapted the songs that they sing alongside the traditional liturgy to help make worship more relevant. Page 53 Question 4 (a) All are created equal; the Parable of the Good Samaritan shows how all are neighbours to each other; in Galatians 3:28 Paul states how all are equal; all humans are made in God s image (Genesis 1:27). (b) Many of the Ten Commandments are easy to break, some online without anyone really knowing that sin has taken place; in the UK, only around 5% of the population attends church regularly, meaning that much of society leads a secular life, away from Christian teaching. (c) The Parable of the Widow s Mite highlights the fact that money should not be held too tightly; when Jesus met with the rich young man, the man explained all the good he was doing; however, he could not let go of his money and this could separate him from God; many charities fighting poverty were either founded by Christians or are still run by them; allowing others to suffer because of poverty, when it could be changed, is not loving in any way. (d) Many people suffer with greed as almost an addiction; 1 Timothy 6:10: For the love of money is the root of all evil ; this key verse illustrates that the desire for money causes people to sin; Matthew 6:24: No one can serve two masters. You will love one and hate the other. ; making wealth the focus of your life will split you from God and split you from those who should be loved, as the Bible shows; 33% of the world s wealth is held by 3% of the population; just 1% of the world s wealth is held by 50% of the world s population; even within countries, class and social situations can change the potential income that someone can achieve; areas of towns and cities can be restricted to those who are poor; a major cause of division is ignorance; racism could be argued to be the main factor; reference to major genocides that have occurred.

Page 56 Question 3 (a) Jesus called upon people to confess their sins seek forgiveness; it helps Christians to examine their lives and consider where they are disobeying God. (b) Follow the teachings of the Bible and instruct all followers to do the same; spend time with those on the extremes of society, following the example of Jesus and showing others how to love. (c) Many Christians feel compelled to read the Bible in its entirety during their lifetime; reading even a few verses each day can allow God to speak to each Christian; by studying the Bible, Christians can learn more about the history and nature of God; as it is the Word of God, Christians believe that the Bible can guide their decision-making (2 Timothy 3:16); Colossians 3:16: Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly. (d) The liturgy is primarily based on scripture; the Bible will never be outdated as it is the Word of God; many Christians find comfort and security in the routine of the liturgy; it allows them to find God in the same ways each week and to show their beliefs in almost any church without having to learn a different way to worship; Catholics used to follow the liturgy when it was written in Latin; translating the liturgy to English brought much opposition; however, almost all Catholics are now able to follow the liturgy in their own language and worship God much more easily; many churches have changed and adapted the songs that they sing alongside the traditional liturgy to help make worship more relevant; the liturgy has been modernised in many churches, with many looking at what was simply tradition and what was biblical.
