Misiunea creștină în contextul dialogului interreligios

19 Decembrie 2011

This article aims to deliver an introduction within a very timely topic from the theological and clerical point of view, namely that of the Christian mission within the context of interconfessional dialogue. In this respect, I have tried to underline some dilemmas revolving between the duty to confess Christian faith and that to respect religious freedom and freedom of faith for each human being. No doubt that such an attempt represents a laborious process of harmonizing the two points of view, which require strong faith, a deepened level of study and openness towards a new approach of the religious phenomenon. The Christian mission of today must rely on a strong revelational argumentation and it must match the requirements of the contemporaneous human being, as the opportunity to sustain a dialogue with those who have not understood yet the beauty and richness of the Christian theology cannot be neglected anymore. From this perspective, the dialogue must be advocated and delivered by Christians with the certainty that the one and only Church of Christ represents the safe path towards redemption and that it is the only one which displays a plenitude of means of redemption, as the religions constitute for fellow Christians a positive challenge to discover the fruits of the Holy Spirit’s presence.
