Background of the Study
The definition of religion is not easy to find. There are many interpretations of religion meaning but no one can be said the most accurate. According to Paden (2008), Religion is a sacred engagement with that which is believed to be a spiritual reality. Religion is a worldwide phenomenon that has played a part in all human culture. Another, from most contemporary scholars, defines religion by identifying a set of widely but no universally shared characteristics. These characteristics can include a collection of beliefs about what is ultimately important and real, a community of believer’s images of a fulfilled human life a set of rituals and practices. (Dickens, 2007) Religion is very important for people who believe to deity. First, unites those with similar goals and beliefs and requires them to behave in a way that benefits others, or at least those who share the same beliefs. These behaviors have traditionally helped people form communities, raise familiar and live together more harmoniously.There are several ways to classify religions. Once way is to group them according to their beliefs about God for Instance, followers of a religion can believe in one god (monotheism) or more than one God (polytheism). Belief is acceptance by the mind that something is true or real, often underpinned by an emotional or spiritual sense of certainty. For many people, religion involves worship of one Supreme Being or deity. Other people worship of many god. Still others have a more general belief in a higher power or universal life force. Beliefs are generally includes a moral code governing thoughts and actions. Almost always, this includes what many call the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would like to be treated. Acceptance is fundamental to the core dogma of most Abrahamic religions, the word "Islam" can be translated as "acceptance", "surrender" or "voluntary submission" and Christianity is based upon the "acceptance" of Jesus of Nazareth as the "Christ" and could be compared to some Eastern religious concepts such as Buddhist mindfulness. Religions and psychological treatments often suggest the path of acceptance when a situation is both disliked and unchangeable, or when change may be possible only at great cost or risk. Acceptance may imply only a lack of outward, behavioral attempts at possible change, but the word is also used more specifically for a felt or hypothesized cognitive or emotional state. (Wikipedia.com) The First religion in the Philippines before the Spanish colonization is Animism; many Filipinos praise the “Anito” and “Diwatas” as their gods. Muslim religion brought by the Arabic traders and missionaries in the middle of 14th century. In 1521, the Spaniard came to the Philippines ledby Ferdinand Magellan and introduced the Catholicism to Malays and it was the beginning of religion in the Philippines. Today, Philippines is the only nation in Southeast Asia with a Christian majority population (Islam and Buddhism are the dominant religion) and many other religions are rise here.
