عنوان مقاله [English]
The function of religion is one of the most important topics in modern religious studies. Mr. Mostafa Malekian is one of the scholars who has looked at the function of religion in his theological courses with a dualistic view, in other words, equal positive and negative aspects, and he believes that religion only makes good better and bad worse. The present article examines this claim with an analytical method and exposes it to judgment, and in addition to its theoretical aspects, examines its functions and practical outputs in the field of education. The result is that the above view is harmful in many ways, such as: lack of theoretical support, lack of reliance on valid scientific and historical research, No distinction between religion and religiosity, lack of distinction between claiming religiosity and true religiosity; Far disregard for Degrees of religiosity and religious knowledge, the fallacy of taking non-causal instead of causal, inefficiency of religious education in the face of social harms and etc.
