Love & Religion

If one day, you fall in love with someone who is has a different religion, would it matter to us? The answer is no. It does not matter.

Mummy is from a family of Christians. Although I am a backslider, i still believe in Jesus. Daddy is a free thinker but he sways towards Taoism. That however, did not deter us from being together. I have always believed that God is actually that 1 same God, depicted into many different versions by men. Regardless of who God really is, I also believe that he/she would want us to love everyone. In the New Testament of the bible, it is stated ‘Love One Another, As I Have Loved You’. Religion can bring people to celebrate God – but it can also destroy love (unfortunately for some). But please do not let that happen to you. I strongly believe that if you love one another enough, religion and love can coexist.

Out of respect for each other, we do not have any altars at home. If daddy wants to go to the temple, I do not stop him. I am also sure he will not stop me from going to church. Hence, you will get to pick your own religion when you are older. And when you meet the right one, know that religion should not come between you both.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8a (New International Version)

Love boldly my son. ❤
