Streszczenie

I selected the title for this article in order to associate it with two other pertinent publications. The first has enjoyed many accolades in educational investigations, a book by I.M. Omari (2011), Concepts and Methods in Educational Research. The second is an article that I wrote as thoughtfully as possible, an article that deserves the attention of anyone engaged in the advance of the educational enterprise...

Internet Involvement: Heart Poison for the University Student?
37 – 96
PDF

Streszczenie

The issue of moral decay is at the heart of the present research. The researcher and her co-author wished to determine the moral quality of students’ internet behaviour. Are they learning values and ideologies that advance them along the path to full human maturity? Are they wasting their time? Are they engaged in behaviour that would make them feel shame if their grandmother or grandfather, mother or father, sister or brother, wife or husband, pastor or priest, imam or teacher were to learn about the websites and the networks that they visit? Would they feel shame about their browsing habits? Would their elders ordinarily watch what students watch when they surf the web?

St. Gregory of Nyssa: His Contribution to Christian Philosophy
97 – 118
PDF

Streszczenie

St. Gregory of Nyssa contributed enormously to the understanding of the ancillary role of philosophy in relation to Christian Theology. He understood that philosophy is at the behest of theology in the sense that philosophy serves as an instrument for explaining the mystery that constitutes the subject matter of theology and for rendering it understandable to the finite human intellect. He is one of several who elucidated the instrumental role of Platonism and Neoplatonism for expounding the Christian deposits of faith in such areas as the Holy Trinity, Christology, Creation and the Eschatological Universal Restoration of all human beings. This paper analyses his understanding of contemplation and its role in the process of attaining knowledge. It also critically analyses human freedom, the abuse of which, from his point of view, is the origin of evil. The paper shows the current relevance of philosophy and the timeliness of philosophy’s service as an instrument in order to make faith in general and religious practices in particular not only understandable but also justifiable. The contemporary world is one that experiences the mushrooming of religions and of Christian denominations and so manifests itself as a world in dire need of critical thinking in order to bring to light the rationale of believing and concretely putting into practice what religions teach. The paper intends to provide a rational stability to the workings of faith by curbing and re-orienting the present day religion-induced fanaticism and radicalism that leave quite insecure human aspirations to peace, integrity and social cohesion.

The Meaning and Function of Satan in the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament)

Streszczenie

In the first two chapters of the Book of Job, we encounter a heavenly figure, identified as the Satan (haSSä†än) who is described as one of “the sons of God.” The dialogue between this figure and God in Job 1:6-12 and 2:1-6, raises some important questions concerning the relationship between human piety/righteousness and God’s blessings in the form of material prosperity...

In July 2014, I was invited by the Association of the Religious Major Superiors in Tanzania to deliver a talk on the present-day challenges that confront consecrated life. I was to address myself both to the African milieu in general and in a more specific manner to the Tanzanian context...

The Dragon and the Beasts in Rev 12:1–13:18: Their Significance for the Contemporary World

PDF

Streszczenie

I was inspired to choose this topic because of the series of reports I came across from the BBC World Service News. I encountered the first report.

On the 6th of December 2016, the BBC News reported the arrest in Egypt of a human organ trafficking ring. These organs were to be sold in the black market and were destined for use in organ transplants. The ring consisted of doctors, nurses and professors suspected of involvement in an international organ trafficking ring. At least 25 people were arrested: among them were organ buyers and middlemen.

The Gospel of St. Matthew tells us that Jesus Christ arrived on African soil not primarily as a missionary but as a refugee (cf. 2:13-15). He was still a baby, and Herod of Galilee sought to kill him (cf. 2:16). Africa welcomed Jesus, and so the history of Christianity had its beginnings on our continent with the noble “yes” of hospitality that echoes into eternity (cf. 25:34-35, 46)...
