Christianity Living and Relationships

The circumstances of the present time are such that indifference to the statement of Orthodox values in the life of the world around us can put civilization on the brink of disaster. This is no exaggeration, and it is not fiction theologians. We sometimes refer to what we call the Orthodox way of life, whereas no such thing in the Bible, however there are certain concept of the Christian life

These meanings we derive from the Holy Scriptures. And the task of theology is precisely based in using biblical ideas, adjust them in relation to understanding of modern people problems and apply these ideas on practice to resolve these problems. 

The required valuables of the moral formation of the person
Traditional values are necessary for us just like air.  If we lose the concept of sin, replacing it with the notion of freedom, we will create a completely unviable civilization that will collapse under the burden of sinful passions.

And because the liberal and traditional start Orthodox lifestyle and Western secular standard can only be combined under one condition - while maintaining our traditional values, our way of life, which provides the ability to resist sin, since it clearly naming and designation of its dangers for man and society . For the sake of this, the religious way of life, should be guaranteed the right to exist in our world.

Relations between church and state
Concerns about religion and its place in the modern world, should be not only church’s, but also state’s matter; state, which is putting the liberal idea of the foundation of state-public model and development of the country, must oppose it in the statement of upbringing, education and interpersonal relationships traditional values, namely - Orthodox lifestyle.

So the question is, what should be the legislation, education, culture, social relations or public morality, and whether we can preserve our cultural and civilizational model in the new century; whether it will take its rightful place in the world community, and whether we will survive as an Orthodox people? Claiming the Orthodox way of life, we form viable principles of civilization.

Religion and Society
Irreligious society is doomed and has no chance of survival; despite the development of economy, social and political institutions, people can live together only on the basis of the moral law. If morality is leaving the society, then it turns into a wolf pack in a jar with scorpions, and people begin to destroy each other along with everything that surrounds them. And any law can help at this point. If moral principles vanish – laws stop working.  

The Apostle Paul said: "The Gentiles by nature the lawful do", and when we say that our society is ruled by criminals, because we have, you see, poor legal system, it is permissible to ask: Is it on Mount Athos more developed? And when we say that we need to invest money in the budget to increase the effectiveness of our legal and judicial system, we can invest all money of the world into it but still loose morality and become a pack of wolfs. It is impossible to achieve a normal life without maintaining moral component!

The fact is that along with approving principles of the Orthodox way of life, we thus forming sustainable civilization. Which means a lot. After all, Scripture clearly testifies that a person can die spiritually, even under the most favorable material conditions. Suffice it to recall the parable of the rich man and Lazarus, or the words of the Lord Jesus Christ: "Let the dead bury their dead" (Luke 9. 60.).

Therefore, we can predict that fall of morality, spirituality and progress without permissiveness against the backdrop of globalization can lead to degeneration and perhaps self-destruction of mankind, for "lamp of the wicked extinguished ..." (Prov. 13 9).

Thus, the real break the deadlock of liberal ideology will return to religious consciousness. Only in the perspective of eternal life, man can comprehend the true meaning of his sojourn on earth; reconstruct the nature of his relations with neighbors and so on.

In other words, the harmony in relationship between a man and God can have huge impact on the survival of human civilization. The loss of religious consciousness is a prerequisite for the integrity of the initial degradation of individual damaged by fall. We can assume that the XXI century can stay religious. Otherwise, it risks becoming the last century of human history.
