At a single glimpse of our eyes we can see that Filipino people are religious and ritualistic people. A good example would be the celebration of the feast of the Black Nazarene of Quiapo wherein hundreds and thousands of people flock.
But most of the people who attend the celebration do not have faith, they just believe that being able to have contact with the Nazareno will bring forth miracles and solve their problems. They do not care what they do they just shove, push, yank, strangle, trample, fight, squeeze one another in the sense that they only do chaos in which many will die. Many people die and get injured, they attend to solve their problems but what they get is more problem.
We can say Filipino’s are religious but most are materialistic. They just tend to worship an image, they worship without faith, and they attend for an easy way to solve a problem they do not care if they hurt someone. Faith is love, faith is god. We should not waste time bothering whether you "love" your neighbor; we should act as if we did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. That should be the right thing to do and not to shrug each other apart.
Religion is not a system of worship only, but also a system of behaviors to other people in daily life as the result of them. I mean, the love to God is not celebrated in a church and other religious place only, but it should be manifested in daily life’s attitude to others. Hurting other people is also hurting his/her creator.
