Why love is important?
According to surveys conducted by the Center for Missional Research at the North American Misison Board and LifeWay Research, 80 percent of 20- to 29-year-olds believe God exists and 73 percent consider themselves to be spiritual and are interested in knowing more about God. At the same time, 67 percent believe the church is full of hypocrites, 77 percent think Christianity today is more about organized religion than about loving God and loving people, and 90 percent say they can have a good relationship with God without being involved in a church.
The quote I chose here is basically saying that in a survey they have found out the percentage of how many people believe in God and how many don't. It talks about how there is people who believe in God but don't go to church. This quote is about the relationship that people have with God and how they believe in him.
I think this is helpful because in this quote it can make people realize about how many people are going away from God. It makes me wonder about why have people stop believing in God and stop having a good relationship with him.
King: Should a gay couple be allowed to adopt? Joel Osteen: I think that, again, it's best for a male and a female. I'm not saying that gay people aren't good people. ... King: Or good parents. Watch Larry King's interview with the Osteens » Joel Osteen: Yeah, exactly. But again, I like to shoot for God's best, and that is a father and a mother in the home. It doesn't always happen. I know a lot of people raised by single parents. And you know what? We bless them and pray for them as well. But I think God's best is a male and female.
The quote I chose here is basically saying that these people don't think that gay couples should adopt a child because God would like a female and a man to have a family. It has the interview of what they have to say about this issue and they put in about their religion.
I think this is a complicated question because in some ways I think that gay couples should not adopt children or have children but at the same time it's there option. It makes me wonder about how religion can be interpret in many different ways and go against a certain relationship.
I also have found a comic that relates to my topic. This comic makes me think about how some people portray religion. In this comic they explain about how in religions you can doubt about your belief and devotion. This comic makes me think about how because of people's devotion some relationships don't work. Some people are really devoted to their belief and think that by having a relationship with some one that is not from their own religion is sin so therefore some people just forget that the most important thing in a relationship is love.
I have learned a lot about my topic and I wished to learn more. Any one can relate to this topic, even though I haven't had a case like this. How do you think people feel when they are in a relationship where religion intervenes?
