Abstract
This paper intended to study the dynamics of social life of the community, especially the Indonesian community who recently seemed disturbed. Historically, the people of Indonesia are very diverse, seen from the aspects of ethnicity, religion, and culture. In a very long time, the people of Indonesia can live in peace and harmony, although their existence is very multicultural. This can happen, because the Indonesian people so far have a high tolerance, so they can live together in harmony and mutual respect for each other. However, along with the influence of global culture sweeping the country, the dynamics of socio-cultural life of Indonesian society began to be disrupted. It is evident that in recent years Indonesia has often experienced conflict due to religious, ethnic, and cultural issues. Data were collected by examining some literatures and convey them narratively and interpretatively. To address the widespread interfaith, inter-ethnic and cultural conflicts among Indonesians, there are several strategies to be taken, such as: (1) The religion education system in schools should not make children become fragmented according to religion, as this may cause fanaticism of their own religion teachings and contempt for the teachings of other religions and such a way is very dangerous to the integrity of the Indonesian nation; (2) Religion education must be able to provide understanding to learners about universal religion. Because basically the religions that exist in this world are nothing but the way to the same goal; (3) The need to understand the teachings of religion universally, so as to develop maturity and openness to the minds of the students, so that religion is not understood only in six types such as Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Catholicism, Buddhism and Confucianism. But every quest for God, truth, goodness, compassion, and glorification of fellow human beings and the universe can also be understood as a religion; (4) It is necessary to understand the function of religion education, i.e. neo conventional, in the sense that in addition to functioning to improve the religiosity of learners with their own religious beliefs, it also serves to provide the possibility of openness to studying the religion of others just to foster tolerance in religious life.
