We were made to memorize and recite prayers that instilled in us the belief that God is present within everyone. This daily routine made me confident that God would look after me, my family, my friends, and everyone else around me. I once believed that there is a God who watches over us and protects us from harm, but all these beliefs were shattered when I saw the realities in life and witnessed firsthand the suffering of little children in an orphanage in Manila, and then I started to lose my faith and became a nonbeliever.
That might be a reason that I still dread going to church today. In seventh grade, I got confirmed into the Methodist Church. At the time, I just thought of it as something that everyone does; I didn’t really know what it meant to be confirmed. To this day, I still don’t know, but I have a better understanding now. I feel that to be confirmed means that you belong to a big group of loving people who want to do good in the world.

I think that friends are often overlooked as being influencial in our lives. Our friends are our peers and are able to affect our lives in a way that our parents, pastor, or teachers cannot. If it was not for my friends I honestly do not know where i would be, what i would be doing there, and certainly do not know if I would be the person i am today without my friends molding me. My friends have taught me to fight thru the hard times when I thought all was lost and there was no use in trying. My friends have picked me up when I was at the lowest of lows and brought me to the highest of highs.
With the years and time I have come to the realization that my strongest world view has been that my faith in God. As I have read about all the different world views in this course, I do not agree with them as the majority of them do not believe in God.
