Abstracts
What does it mean today to live as a believer? Or, more specifically, what does it really mean today to live as a follower of Christ? Is our life, the life of those who have decided to take a step to belong to Christ, different from the lives of other people around us, and in what manner? By asking these questions, the author is interested in one distinctive component of our lives: the wider community, living with others, and when we encounter politics, in a somewhat neglected ancient sense of that word. This is where the reality of life meets the crucified Christ because this is the sphere where our values are best
reflected because they are shaped by the everyday trials of blending in with the prevailing dictatorship of relativism. The issue of the active engagement of a Christian believer in socio-political life arises as an unavoidable question before many theologians of the twentieth century. Among them, Jürgen Moltmann is certainly a key one.
This text emphasizes that God’s promised future relates to and includes our present: hence, the focus of Jürgen Moltmann’s analysis is the crucified one and his invitation to discipleship that requires not only personal transformation and a change in our relationships, but also an active participation in the process of changing existing social circumstances. The article will start from the basic assumptions of Moltmann’s theology outlined in his book The Crucified God. While talking about God, the author actually provides an answer to the question: What kind of discipleship are we called to today by the one who was crucified? The article will pay special attention to the shift introduced by Moltmann, an entirely different approach or question: If social engagement is necessary, how does it relate to the sphere of Christianity, or more specifically,what should Christians be like in order to live in harmony with others?
