"Family In The Society"

They say "blood is thicker than water" peers can leave you but you're family cant.Family is the smallest unit in the society and the most important social structure of any society . A family is the universal institution made up of individuals living together because of blood relation or marriage.It is in the family where love was first develop.The members of the family where the first people you know and you spend more time and experience with them since you where born in this world.A person who can get along with his family well can get along better in his society.A family lives in a home not in a house because a house is only a building or a structure but home is where loving,sharing,cooperation and understanding prevail.
Choosing a lifetime partner is a must or the first step in building you're ideal family someday.It is in you're hand to decide to whom you will be for a lifetime.Some uses their brain not their heart in choosing their partner.Nowadays people tend to be practical and marry a rich people to uplift their economic status.It is obviously seen in our country that some of Filipino wanted to marry a foreigner for them to be stable.If other seems to be practical others believe that the most important ingredient of all is love.According to psychologist human basic need id to love and to be loved but if love is such a precious thing why is there so much hatred in this world?why do marriage fail?why do couples broke up?why is their what we called broken homes? I hear many voices in our contemporary soiety that if the marriage is not working end up with a divorce.
As I view different kind of families in the Philippines Iv e already seen lots of malpractices and lack of strategies in building their family.First,most of the Filipinos were extended family yet they spend more than ht they earned they don't consider their poverty line.The life quality of a family is affected by the extent of its size.Large families provide more food and needs compare to small ones.Economically speaking the small families have more income for their food and needs rather than to those of large families whose food and needs are limited and the choice of expenditures are carefully done.Small families meet their nutritional needs and poor health for those large families.In short, family size affects the availability of food and the health quality of their life is at risk.Secondly, Filipinos were considered as one day millionaire obviously we can observe it during holidays and fiesta.They don't find time to know their basic needs they were busy with their demands.Some families living in a society don't have a good spending plan they don't have a budgeting strategy.A family budget must give prior or give a must attention to the basic needs and set aside the desires or personal matters.Every family must consider the principles of economics that "mans wants and needs are unlimited but the resources are only limited".every family cant live love alone but consider their economic status to lessen the number of poor, population and unemployment in the family.Because of lack of strategies in racing a family many of us suffer.Being in a low profile is not a valid reason or a good alibi not to become educated in racing a family.We must not be the problem of our society but the solution instead.It is the family who molds individual to perform better in his country.

Deborah V. Bayangan Sociology


The existence of the family is the most important thing because this is the reason why it created or it exist a society wherein, we can share the goodness of life.
The family is very important for every individual because the family is the first who can understand who and what you are or whatever you have done in your life. They are also the one you can ask for help if somebody harm you and the one can comfort you if you have any kind of problem. They are always there to help you in everything by helping you in solving your problem or by giving a moral support.
For me, if ever that somebody will ask me to choose one that is one of the most thing that I will never change in what ever thing or who ever, I will answer “my family” because they are the one who cares, love, teach me a good values, and what ever I am today is just because of them. There was a times that we have a little misunderstandings before but still, I know that they loved me and I loved them so much especially my father because were so close and he also the one who acts as my mother when my mother was died because of illness. I’m so grateful that I am belonging to a good family.
Each of the family has their own division of labor or each of them has a function in their home. The women/girls are the one who preserve and prepare the foods but now, the woman’s now are not only for the works in the house but they also works outside like in the offices; the men/the one who cared your flocks, broader social knowledge and ties and to be seen as a public leaders. In relation to this, the father is the one who protect his family member or “the wall of the house”. And the mother is the one who will take care of her family member or “the light of the house”.
In our society, it has different practices, cultures, and beliefs of every family. As I observed in our society, I can see that the other families are much closed, they are always helping each other and they always communicate by means of bonding together or in other word, they have a time to one another. The other family are not close to each member especially when the parents are too busy in their works then they go home at midnight, and in the morning, they will go again to their job without eating their food at home and this is the reason why that the closeness of the family will be break; the other family that I observed was, they have a child but they have no husband/wives; the other family have been practiced stealing by their generation to generation; and last one was the father and Mother in a family are practicing divorce or separation but the father supports their Children.
In every relationship with your own family, there’s always either a bad or good effects depending on how you manage yourself.
The effects of the family to every individual are: If he comes from a good family, I can say that he also a good person because we as an individual are being teach by our parent and other member of our family and as we know that in our home is the first pace where we learn values, but when the image of your family is not good, it is automatically that your image also is not good for the people around you even you are doing the right things. Sometimes your own family can destroy you as an individual like for example: if your parents are always arguing about their problems or just like for the news that we hear about the father who rape his own daughter.
The family is a very important thing that we have because they loved us and they are the one can help you if you have a problem, but for some people are not giving importance to their family because they can’t feel the love that comes to their family.

"The Effect of many Religious Organizations in the society"

Religion is the belief in and worship of a god or gods, or a set of beliefs concerning the origin and purpose of the universe. It is commonly regarded as consisting of a person’s relation to God or to gods or spirits. Many religions have narratives, symbols, traditions and sacred histories associated with their deity or deities, that are intended to give meaning to life.
In this time, there are so many organizations that were built by different leaders. Most of them tell that they are the true religion.. But because of the fact that all them say it, people became conscious on what is true. Some of them just create their own but different to what is common. Example of this is the Church of Satan.
Anton Szandor LaVey (1930–1997) published The Satanic Bible (1969), affirming in bold language the teachings of the Church of Satan and proclaiming that Satan ruled the earth. This was the dawn of the Age of Satan, he announced—the morning of magic and undefiled wisdom.Worship of the Prince of Darkness is at least as old as the Judeo-Christian tradition, and there was nothing new about a belief in magical powers. What was new was LaVey's use of the term "church" as part of his organization's title. While some accused him of blasphemy, he pointed out that the word itself came from the Greek and applied to any group that feels it has been "called out" of society's rank-and-file for a special purpose. And there seemed little question that LaVey seriously considered his church to be quite special. In addition to ceremonies and rituals devoted to the Prince of Darkness, there were weddings, funerals, and children baptized in the name of Satan.
LaVey's The Satanic Bible listed nine declarations that defined Satanism for a new age:
1. indulgence, instead of abstinence;
2. vital existence, instead of spiritual pipe dreams;
3. undefiled wisdom, instead of hypocritical self-deceit;
4. kindness to those who deserve it, instead of love wasted on ingrates;
5. vengeance, instead of turning the other cheek;
6. responsibility to the responsible, instead of concern for psychic vampires;
7. man as just another animal…more often worse than those that walk on all fours, who because of his divine spiritual and intellectual development, has become the most vicious animal of all;
8. all of the so-called sins, as they lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification;
9. Satan is the best friend the Church has ever had, as he has kept it in business all these years.
Some of their beliefs and practices are:
1.They do not worship a living deity. Members are Agnostics or Atheists.
2.Major emphasis is placed on the power and authority of the individual Satanist, rather than on a god or goddess.
3.They believe that "no redeemer liveth" - that each person is their own redeemer, fully responsible for the direction of their own life.
4."Satanism respects and exalts life. Children and animals are the purest expressions of that life force, and as such are held sacred and precious."
They have also nine Satanic statements:
Indulgence, not abstinence.
Vital existence, not spiritual pipe dreams.
Undefiled wisdom, not hypocritical self-deceit.
Kindness to those deserving of it, not love wasted on ingrates.
Vengeance, not turning the other cheek.
Responsibility to the responsible, instead of concern for psychic vampires.
Man as just another animal - the most vicious of all.
Gratification of all ones desires.
The best friend that the Christian Church has had as he has kept it in business for centuries.
As a christian, knowing this kind of organization is so alarming! Many people became doers of bad because of their doctrines. Although their reasons for making it is acceptable in some ways but the affects of these to the society is really worst.

DIOZON, MADELENE C. (BEED II) I choose religion because since birth up to now I was remain as one of the Baptist member in our church. Its effects me as a person in this society for being a one of religious like Baptist for learning the right and wrong and how to praise and worship God as the center of my everyday life. The practices that Baptist for me is to sing a song in solemn way, not drinking liquor, smoking cigarettes, and immodest apparel that other people do when they go to church every Sunday. Based on my experience as a Baptist I was faithful member of Baptist religion but when I was a teenager and become a high school student I learn and experience the bad things that a religious like me do that things that I don’t expected I do in rest of my life. But because of believing God and being faithful in him I survive and praise him until now, and as a Baptist I make myself strong enough to make everything fine and move-on for the trials that I experience. It effects society as a person in this community because every person in this community have a different beliefs that every person do to believe in their life. Like in Muslim they believe in their God Allah, they practices the Ramadan every month of august, the man that make a wedding in many times in different women, the attire that they wearing every day and the praise and worship that they do every morning and afternoon that other religious groups do not do the same, and it effects the belief of other person in this country has a catholic and converted as a Muslim because they think that it is right and change their belief in the other aspect of religion. The effects of religion in society is the different traditions, belief, practices so most of the other religion argue and fight to the doctrines that they teach to their member. And mostly the center of their teaching about God is in the biblical way, the verses, the lesson that bible said but the other religion is they focus to the sight of the world that happen every day and they do not apply the bible, so many of the people in this society are wondering if they believe in this religion or not so because of this many people in this society are in different religion. About the practices, the effects of different religion in this country is the churches that appear in the different way of teaching so people what to not go in churches and pray in their houses and they said that as long they know they have God in their lives they save and be a Christian forever. It effects the community for having a wrong doctrine, and they do their own belief as a Christian. And mostly the children that at birth until now that they do not know the right religion and make their own decision as a person in the community and effect their lives everyday and the true savior in their lives. That’s the effects of the religion in the society.

Family is the smallest social institution, it is compost of an individual that interact with each other who lived in the same roof and share common culture. It is compost of person who is united by blood, marriage or adaption. It is a place where the individual found the unconditional loved for each member. A place where you can assure that every member is loyal to you, and care for you.
Family has a unique function which cannot be done by any other institutions one is the reproduction and rearing of the young, a family is the one who should give more attention and importance to the young one. A family is the one who molds the personality of an individual, it is where an individual gets his attitude and behavior, at some point you can identify what kind of family a person came from base on his attitude or base on what you can see to him.
Second function is cultural transmission and enculturation a family practice a common culture that’s why culture was transmitted from one generation to another, nowadays most of the traditional Filipino culture was preserved because of this kind of function of family, an individual acquires values and behaviors that are appropriate or necessary in the culture, most of the Filipino still practice it.
The third function is the socialization of the child so that he would learn his role and attitude, in the family it is necessary to teach the young one about his role in the family so that he would be able to know his limitations and he would also know to respect others and to the elders around him, this function of family is very important because it is the way of educating the child about the factors that he need to know. It is better to teach the child as early as you can for him to know his duty and status as a member of the family .The quality of human relation in home has an effect on socialization.
The fourth is providing affection and a sense of security, a family is the one who must secure the welfare of its member .the member should feel it so that he will have a faith to his family.
The fifth is to provide the environment for personality development, because the environment has a big contribution to the personality of a person, a child must race to an environment with a pleasant atmosphere and a good attitude of the people around him so that he could also gather a good attitude and behavior. It is better to educate a child as much as possible so that he will become a good and productive citizen of the country
A family is the one who molds the personality of an individual, and must give attention to the young ones. A family should be more sensitive in taking care of its member. Therefore it should be a good example to its member so that its member will become a good example to other also.

For my own opinion people get involve into religion for them to practice or to sustain there spiritual needs to gain faith have deeper believe, understanding and most especially the relationship to God to praise the creator . Many things are get into our mind when we heard the word religion. The different kind of religion their practice, leader or the founder, doctrine, beliefs, tradition, acts, way of living and the ceremony. But then somehow because of this difference there is some tension, war or what we called miss-understanding and some debate about this matter like what happen in our country concerning about Christian and Muslim relationship in Mindanao that till now under negotiation the conflict still exist. There are many kind of religion the most known in the world like for example are the Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christian. Both have many member but then the most believable in this religion is the Christian I do believe we people should engage our self to Christ. If we going to study or think more deeper. Christianity is so different from the other. Christianity is historical and gain may accusation, bad and good impression in this world. Christian from the word Christ which means follower of Jesus Christ the messiah. Christianity spread in the world like in the continent of America and Europe the country Spain brought Christianity in our country we inherit this big thing form the content of Europe. The Buddhism and Hinduism is in Asian country, Islam is in the Arab country and some country in the continent of Africa. The one thing that different religion has something in common is that to believe that there is GOD who made everything that has life. The religion Christian is divided into three that is Roman Catholic that lead by the roman pope, protestant lead by the reformist, eastern Christianity of the orthodox. Only the Christian religion has divided compared to Buddhism, Islam and Hinduism. Buddhism believe in Buddha, Islam for Allah Hinduism is for Vishnu, if we going to distinguish the religion that exist here in this world. Christian religion is the real one. Christian believes in Jesus the savior the one who went to the earth to pay for our sin. The one who die and rise again and went up to the heaven where he came from. Buddhism are most practice in the country of china, Japan, Korea, in the continent of Asia their leader which is Buddha is only a person, human and he die but then he did not rise-up from the death. Also Mohamed from the Islam religion, practice in the country of Saudi, Egypt, Iraq. Mohamed also die, until till now unlike Jesus of Christian. And also compared to the rest religion that I did not notice that exist in this world. We people should get involved to this matter just about to our relationship to God and the savior Jesus, the religion itself cant make our self save at the end of the world like what the bible said by “grace we are save” not by our deeds in our life. Bible said also that “Jesus is the only way the truth and the life.” So it really means we need to have Jesus in our life have deeper relationship to him. To make us safe and save.
