mind in the case of Shakespeare literature, Juliet’s (famous) speech during the balcony scene of the play Romeo and Juliet shows the theme of heart vs. mind. Romeo and Juliet is a romance play with the two-main character Romeo and Juliet being from rival families, however, the two are brought together by fate and must try and keep their forbidden love a secret. Juliet could be the more logical/ reasonable one of the two when it comes to not letting your emotions and passion for love get in the way, however, she does have her moments. For example, in this scene, Juliet is pouring her heart out about Romeo over the balcony of her bedroom not knowing that Romeo was listening. During this heartful speech about Romeo, the two see each other unexpectedly making Juliet recant her statements about her love for Romeo when she really did love him.
I think it is very important that a Christian should first read his/her culture in the light of the Bible. We cannot transform everything in culture but we can definitely seek to transform ourselves. In the end, God will influence people to change and become what He wants them to be. A Christian’s response to culture should include a positive revolutionary mindset. Christian thought and life should state things to culture that exhibit Christ’s revolutionary vision for all people Our choice today is between a prophetic religion and a culture religion, but we must be cautious about our emphases within culture.
I like how he gives reasons for everything that he states and I think he is very convincing. I like how he defines freedom and makes sure that the readers understand the meaning of freedom in a right way. As until now, many people don’t understand the true meaning of freedom. The one point I don’t agree with the author is the one of that religion shouldn’t affect the weight of a person’s opinion. I think that religion is everything in life and any decision you make in life should be based on your religious beliefs and how you think that this decision will affect you in the future.
This analysis shows how the movie Honor Thy Father portrays a family that follows and at the same time deviates from a stereotypical Filipino family. It does not follow the usual gender roles and the predictable plot common in Philippine films. The film also shows the willingness of a person and to what extent he or she is willing to exceed in order to save and protect their families. Furthermore, the representation of religion is also discussed in this paper and how it affected the actions and decisions that the characters made in the movie.

Once we have learned to appreciate and value our being Filipinos, building our nation, achieving goals of peace and social justice will come next. Filipinos have a very strong and resilient character. This was developed by the hardships and challenges we have faced throughout our history.

Someone once said, “Life is all about risks and it requires you to jump. Don’t be a person who looks back and wonders what they could have had.” This quote means so much in the story of Romeo and Juliet and of the present day. The author seems to be saying that opportunities come, but they do not last for long and someday, regret will come. Romeo and Juliet did take a big risk for their love by marrying in secret and dying for their love. With this quote, the teenage brain makes choices with consequences, look for new sensations, and seek out social and emotional information.
These are both said to show respect to them. Not only that, but we’re taught to amen elders, much like the Chamorro people. Chamorros and Filipinos are quite similar as they amen by bringing a hand to their nose (for Chamorros) or a hand to their forehead (for Filipinos). Culture can also possibly determine religion.

The cross serves its purpose with great avail. It lets out an aura of defense. It sits, reminding people of the path to righteousness. Ever since the Spanish had introduced the Filipino people of God, he and his symbols have always played a pivotal role in our culture. From past to present, Filipinos value the cross with only great respect for it.
The Maturities of Romeo and Juliet It is a controversial topic whether youth is capable of handling a mature love. Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare by 1595, epitomizes this common topic. The main characters of the play are two teenagers who fall in love at the first sight, however, the hatred between the families of the two leads to their death in the end. In the adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet in 1996, Romeo and Juliet are portrayed more mature than in that of Baz Luhrmann in 1968. This can be evident in three aspects: the styles of the acting of the actors, the reaction of Juliet after learning about the death of Tybalt, and the setting of certain scenes.
