Hubert Knoblauch erwidert diese those, jedoch mit einer Gegenthese: Die Religionen erlangen Popularität in der Gesellschaft und werden sichtbarer. Ebenso gibt es eine Transformation der Religionen, da sie Züge der Popkultur assimilieren. Dieses Phänomen bezeichnet er mit dem Begriff der „Populären Religion“.
Diese Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit der examine der von Prof. Dr. Hubert Knoblauch dargestellten populären faith in einem bestimmten Milieu, nämlich unter Muslimen. Es soll additionally untersucht werden, wie die Muslime, die in der Popkultur leben, mit dem Islam umgehen: Verliert die islamische faith auch an sichtbaren Konturen? Gehen immer weniger Muslime in die Moscheen? Erlebt die Islamische faith auch eine Transformation? Gibt es auch einen populären Islam?
Als erstes möchte ich einen groben Überblick über die von Knoblauch dargestellte populäre faith schaffen. Anschließend werde ich anhand empirischer Forschungen analysieren, in wie weit die populäre faith auf den Islam zutrifft. Anstatt alle islamischen Strömungen zu analysieren, used to be den Rahmen der Hausarbeit sprengen würde, möchte ich das Augenmerkmal auf die neue Islamische Jugendbewegung, die mit dem Begriff „Pop-Islam“ geprägt wurde, legen, denn in dieser Bewegung wird der Islam mit dem westlichen Lebensstil kombiniert.

My utmost hope is that Born-Again Believers embody the reality of Christ-like dwelling, no longer religiously, yet in truth. A truth that transcends culture, customs, and we’ve-always-done-it-this-way type of thinking.
I grew up within the South the place traditions and customs run deep. besides the fact that, God’s be aware encouraged me to contemplate lots of those customs. for instance, many Southern Black humans, despite educational achievements, publicizes the note “ask” as “axe,” with out brooding about why.
Also, many vote for Democrats their complete lives with none regard to the Democratic Party’s Platform, the Candidate’s stand on abortion, homosexuality, lesbianism, or the other social matters. but on Sundays, they are going to worship and compliment God. Then on Tuesdays, they're going to vote in direct contradiction to the very God they worshipped and praised quite a few days before.
We easily vote as Democrats as though it’s in our DNA, no longer giving notion to how our vote will allow the enemy of our soul to maneuver opposed to our ideals, our church, even our Salvation.
Is that biblically correct?
Well, as Believers in Jesus, the Redeemer of mankind, our DNA has been reworked. Shouldn’t we mirror that fluctuate in our day-by-day lives in addition to in our civic responses to social concerns in our group and our country?
it really is my prayer that the reader gets solutions to those and different questions that confront a baby of God touring via this trip of existence with the Savior.
