Det moderna självförverkligandet – och alternativet

Ett stycke som kan kräva två eller tre genomläsningar, men som är värt det:

"[T]he formation of consumerism as we know it today depended on a widely embraced Romantic and post-Romantic conception of the individual – not an embodied soul called by God to flourish in a family within a community through the exercise of the virtues, but an emotive 'self' that constructs itself as it pleases in the self-chosen relationship it makes and breaks, by excercising its rights to do so through the desire for acquisition of material things and their contribution to its self-construction of identity."

Brad S. Gregory, "The Unintended Reformation", s 292.

Jag håller inte med författaren i kopplingen konsumism/individualism. Och därmed ej heller kopplingen samhälle/familj/identitet.

Jesus kallade lärjungarna individuellt. De följde honom en och en. Rådet till den rike ynglingen var till honom - individuellt. Han botade någon gång en blind på ett sätt en annan gång på ett annat sätt. Hela tiden individuellt. INTE en enda gång botade han en grupp av människor. Inte en enda gång undervisade han om familj och samhälle.

Tvärtom blev de kallade ut ur sina sammanhang in i oerhört radikala livsomständigheter. Utan ATP eller försäkringar kallades de ut att tjäna Honom som de trodde på. De gick i tro.

Detta som författaren tar upp är ett samhällsfenomen ytterst välkänt om hur individualiseringen i samhället påverkat oss till en större valfrihet där vi också kan välja och frånsäga oss (nödvändig) fostran och bara ta emot de bitar vi vill och därmed forma egna "Gudsbilder". Detta är liksom en konsumism. Man äter lite av bordet där och lite av bordet där och en hel del kan man konsumera via ny teknik. Ja, det är en slags konsumism.

Men om Gud får gripa tag i all denna längtan som finns i individuellt sökande så finns det ändå i summan av dessa ett helt samhälle som behöver vända sig till Jesus.

It is evident that if an author wants his or her readers be interested in his/her writing, such one has to write only unique and gripping material. If someone has any problems with academic writing this high-quality essay writing source will be very helpful.
