Religious nature of education to help students recognize the religious nature of religious morality itself is the result of secular social and moral religious, secular moral absolute The mystification and one-sided results, they are a branch with dry the relationship between the flow source. Secondly, the role of religions exhort people to perform good deeds not the mainstream, with the core content of the religious and moral comparison is concerned, it is just a minor, derived, as in the Christian faith in God, obey God, to worship God is everything the first principle of religious ethics, through all the tenets of the so-called God and gods to adjust the relationship between man and God, man and man, tried to play down the value of life ".


2. Strengthen the educational function of the two courses, carry out effective university ideological and political work, "Two Courses" is an important way to promote Marxism-Leninism in our country, as "Two Courses" Teachers should earnestly fulfill their educational responsibilities, strengthen our self-optimization of teaching methods, close to the student body and mind, to make the educational function of the "Two Courses" are fully reflected.

Second, college students will inevitably encounter all kinds of confusion, "the ideological position, do not occupy the right ideas, wrong thinking will occupy." [2] our ideological and political work of education can intervene in a timely and guide the confused period students will be able to help them to establish a firm belief in Marxism, otherwise, these students are more likely to invest in the embrace of religion.

Strengthen the basic research of religion, and the creation of basic knowledge on religious courses some students it is in the best religion of Marxism-Leninism single education mode have a strong sense of curiosity and mystery, and then contact even religious believers, If we can through the religious foundations courses stripped of its mystery coat, let students early understanding of the nature of religion, so that when college students is the face of religious, you will not feel blind ignorance, in order to better resist penetration.
