Chapter 1 The Problem and its setting
Every one of us has their own religion. Religion can merely define as a particular system of beliefs or worship of a god or gods. Religion itself has a great impact or effect towards an individual’s; it can be either personal or social problem. Different kinds of religious affiliations are spread out all over the world.
Students, as individuals have their own religious affiliations. These include Roman Catholic, Born Again, Iglesia ni Cristo, Ang Dating Daan and many more. These different religious affiliations have their own beliefs and different ways of worship. These religions can affect the students’ performance in school and even in their homes.
As days pass by, students have their own choices and decisions to make especially in choosing their own religion. The students may be guided in their choice of own religion by the following: their family’s choice of religion, friends or peers affect their own choices of religion, neighbors or her own preference, inclusion of religion subjects on school curriculum and many more.
The students religious affiliations can also affect their performance in school by students being committed to religious activities are least to develop vices; students became more responsible when they engage in religious activities and a lot more. Religion may also have bad effects like some students are obliged to attend various activities for their religion and some students forget to study their lessons and submit projects or assignments on time. That is why students must have a time management. They must balance their time between their studies and religious activities. Time management can help students to be organized in the things and activities they want to do. Religion itself is such a great aspect affecting one’s life.
