Globalisering – set i Kristi lys

GLOBALIZATION – seen in the light of Christ

Randoms:

Rüdiger Safranski has in a book from 2003, “How much globalization can man tolerate?”, also written about globalization.

(Rüdinger Safranski: Wieviel Globalisierung verträgt der Mensch? Copyright ©  Carl Hanser Verlag München Wien 2003)

He writes on one of the first pages (page 14):… that modern globalization began with globalization of fear and terror.

And on page 22-23, where he mentions globalization as anti-nationalism:But antinationalistic globalism can not change the anthropological fact that mobility and openness must be balanced by place-based anchoring. We can communicate and travel globally, but we can not live globally …….

Globalization or globalism is becoming more and more like a religion that aims to embrace everything and everyone on this planet. Here it is “the free market forces” that is the god to be worshiped.

How utopian it may sound, favoring local self-sufficiency is a better paradigm than globalism.

The choice is thus between a life without morality and empathy, where man is put at risk and without identity, and a conviction of a better world with hope for everything and everyone.
A conviction of a rescuer about whom it is said (Isaiah 11.1-10):

 GLOBALISERING – set i Kristi Lys

  • Centralisering og sammenlægninger af institutioner, virksomheder, skoler mm vil medføre mere overvågning og kontrol og indskrænkning af den personlige frihed.

 Markedsøkonomi og finansiel globalisering vil medføre overnational styring, forbrugsslaveri og totalitære samfund.

Disse hypoteser (bl.a.) opstillede vi i 2011 og publicerede dem på vores hjemmeside www.inluminechristi.dk i rapporten: ”Kristent demokrati og kristne værdier”

 

Rüdiger Safranski har i en lille bog fra 2003, Akademisk Forlag: ”Hvor meget globalisering tåler mennesket?”, også behandlet disse ting.

Han skriver på en af de første sider (side 14):
…,at den moderne globalisering begyndte med globalisering af angst og skræk.

Det er nu ikke så nyt endda.

Hvor er arvingerne?

Where are the heirs?

Looking at todays world in the light of Christ, what do You see? Where are they, the meek? Where are the people, who shall inherit the earth?

Do You know any? Do You know the people who without hesitation and doubt will answer as Maria did: Lk 1, 38.?Do You know the people who has a character as described in: Mt 5, 1-110. ?
The following article is from a sermon that I held on Mary’s Baptismal Day in Bramdrup Church long ago, probably in the late 70’s. At a time when my good old friend Pastor Erik Langkjer was a parish priest there.

Looking at our world today in the same light, in the light of Christ, we see no change, at least not for the better.

Praise to the Lord, creator of heaven and earth. Praise to Him who let us be born again as living hope.

Dear Lord – Confirm our hope, strengthen our faith and stay close in our mouth and in our hearts. In Jesus Name!

(Gospel of the Day: Close Chapter 1, verses 26-38)

“Do you know that feeling, I that you like to do something you do not really know if you have the competence? That´s the feeling I have right now!

Who am I to be allowed to speak to you from this chair? Do I have more faith, more knowledge about God, or am I a better person? No, on the contrary!

Nu på dansk! (Danish)

Det historieløse regime

De vestlige lande, som Danmark naturligvis er en del af, har misforstået den verdenspolitiske udvikling, eller rettere sagt, vi er ikke i stand til at forstå den på grund af mangel på historisk og kulturel indsigt. Dette bevirker, at vi simpelthen ikke ved, hvem vi selv er og hvad vi står for, hvis vi da står for noget overhovedet ud over en endeløs hang til fysisk nydelse. Læs resten
