God, religion and church: the under-21 view By MARLEN'E COOKSHAW Herald Statf Writer "What does the word God mean to It seems that a person as many dirt erent responses to that question as the num- ber of people he asks. Four students from the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute came up with the fol- lowing ideas and opinions: "God is just a said Gayle. "I pray to God be- cause I need a name to ad- dress my thoughts to. I don't think the church represents God, either; I don't think anyone hut God himsclt can." Gayle is Jewish, and ac- cepts Jesus as a prophet, but not the Messiah. "The Jewish church does not set down standards about the existence oE she said. "We may accept God in the Christian sense, or else in our own personal concept." Jane felt that God was "something within me. When all eke fails I believe in God. You must always do what you think is best; if you are wrong well, I think God is forgiving, not a God of punishment." "I believe In God and a said Mark. "I am a member of the Rcsicrucian Society, which is a combina- tion of sciences and reli- gions." He does not beb'eve that man was made in the image of God, and feels that all of the purported Biblical miracles can be logically and naturally explained. "I think I sort ot half be- lieve in was Phyllis' comment, "but everytime I hear someone talking about God, I think it he is so great why docs he made people suf- Phyllis is a member of the Buddhist laith. "God doesn't make people suffer, we was Mark's rebuttal. "T have so many doubts. It's funny, 1 believed strong- ly said Jane. The oth- ers mentioned a similar feel- ing. Jane is a former member of the United Church who questioned her right to at- tend. "I felt like a hypocrite going to church and reciting the creed. But I still like to go sometimes, there's a kind of comfort in being with other people like that. "I like to go when I'm lone- ly, I enjoy singing the hymns. "But 1 don't believe Jesus was the son of God. He was a good man with wonderful teachings. The stories about him were exaggerated by his following, the people who loved him. "I don't believe in the mir- acles as they are stated in the Bible, I don't think Jesus was What do today's young people thing about reli- gion? Do they bslieve in a God? Do they accept tlie traditional church views, or seek their own? Herald reporter Marlene Cookshaw interviewed a number of high-school-aged students i in Lethbridge to seek an in- dication of the answers lo these questions. The results will be car- ried in this five-par! series. dead when he supposedly rose from the grave. The BiWe is abstract, and call be inter- preted in many ways. "Jesus was a non-violent revolutionary Ln his time, but he is not my Saviour." "Buddhism is easier to be- b'eve and follow than most religions, especially commented Phyllis. "H says that you must live b'ke Bud- dha to achieve his inner peace you must go through life yourself to understand it. When you overcome vanity and greed, and break the shell of society by following his teachings and life pat- tern, you find truth. "We meditate, not pray, and I don't think the church Is necessary for that as long as you meditate somewhere." "The church is good and serves a purpose when you need said Gayle, "but I don't think you have to go to church once a week, I don't think it's good to be made to go to church." Jane agreed, but empha- sized that she thought the "mind-building of Sunday schools is a good thing. It's good to have a basic back- ground of the church." Mark's religion differs from the others in that it is "a closed society, with only a few members in the city and occasional meetings." Literature and practical knowledge are provided to members, who believe that liigher planes of existence can he reached and the bound- aries of the planet overcome if service and love are ac- complished on earth. Mark expressed a belief in reincarnation and Uie habi- tation of other planets, as well as the desire to have all world religions culminated in one faith. "I think that part, possibly even a good deal of the Bible is said Mark, "but too much of it has been misinter- preted." Mark was formerly Mor- mon, but he left the church, because "it runs on too much faith and not enough on he said. "I didn't like the way they belittled other religions, either." "Too many churches say that that you've got lo have faith and believe, but how can they expect us to with DO asked Gayle. "Most young people have gotten off church religion now, they have their own ideas and Iheir own thing to was a comment gen- erally agreed upon. "1 still tliink people need some kind of guiding added Jane. "But it's kind of hard to believe religion and God when you're taught sci- ence and evolution. I believe in evolution." When asked by one of the students why mixed Jewish marriages were discouraged, Gayle replied that a marri- age between persons of any different faitlis was hard when their beliefs were strong. She said that the many restrictions of the Jewish religion were mostly health rules. Gayle belongs to a religion that believes in the old but not the new testament of the Bible. She felt that min- ority groups share a closeness that larger religions do not have. There are only 35 Jew- ish families in Lethbridge. "You know, I'm really In- terested in the technicalities of other said Jane. 'It's too bad we don't learn more about them when we'ra younger." All seemed to agree that children deserved much bel- ter, more unbiased religious instruction. "M a y b e then they'd realize that religions are not really all that differ- ent they're all looking for the same thing, even in sim- ilar ways. Praying and med- itating are the same thing, it's all in your said Gayle. "Everybody discovers same truth in the added rhyllis. "Religions are pretty much the same, only from different viewpoints." "The best thing about liv- ing now, in the 20th Century, is that people's thoughts are always changing and grow- said Jane. "And the best thing about living here, in Canada, is that there is so much freedom of reli- gious belief, you know you compare it to places like Ire- land, and it's pretty wonder- ful."
