saritura in-naltime

cine invata de la canadian?

Framantarile si conflictele relationale abunda in spatiul eclesial-evanghelic iar rapiditatea de acces a informatiei ii nauceste pe unii care fara discernamant pornesc si se lasa purtati intr-un suvoi de afirmatii si raspunsuri care nu certifica decat un singur lucru: “Nu l-ati cunoscut asa pe Christos

Am citit ieri un material echilibrat scris de Tim Challies, un pastor implicat in varii interactiuni online, care stie sa cumpaneasca bine evenimente si atitudini.

El se in materialul sau la unul din subiectele controversate in mediul evanghelic referitoare la pastorul C.J. Mahaney. Am prezentat la vremea respectiva cate-ceva (“cum se face judecata unui lider– 2– 3“) tocmai din dorinta de a invata impreuna cum se abordeaza astfel de situatii.

Tim Challies mi-a citit parca gandul ce il am si-a exprimat bine atitudinea pe care vreau a o dezvolta in fata oricaror controverse relationale:

“I have been careful to keep in mind Proverbs 18:17 which says, “The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.” It is so simple, but so consistently and demonstrably true. There are always two sides to a disagreement and often one side chooses to speak loudly and boldly and the other to remain silent. This is particularly true when one side is acting on the counsel of legal advisors who will almost always insist upon withholding evidence until formal legal proceedings have begun. We tend to believe that the side that is slow or hesitant to release information must be in the wrong, that their silence is an admission of guilt. Keep in mind, though, that Jesus did not protest his innocence and that people took this as a sign of his guilt, though he, of all men, was completely innocent.”

Intreg materialul este aicipoate ajuta decantarea opiniilor si in contextul romarcan-mioritc in care au fost si vor mai fi personaje ce devin subiecte…
