Download PDF by Horst Gerlach: Das authentische Leben oder die verzweifelte Suche nach dem

| November 23, 2017 | admin | 0

By Horst Gerlach

Die postmodernen Philosophien haben einen irrationalen, integralen Menschen hervorgebracht, der holistisch denkt aus der Einheit mit dem Tod. So entstand ein integrativer Mensch von Geist und Natur, in dem intestine und Böse, Leben und Tod miteinander vereinigt und „versöhnt" wurden. Dadurch leben unter uns
immer mehr seelisch zerrüttete Menschen. Hilfe kann nur geleistet werden, wenn solche Menschen sich
von der Vermischung, das heißt von dieser „Versöhnung durch Vereinigung" bewusst trennen. Sodann wird es möglich sein, in die ursprüngliche Lebenswirklichkeit einer echten authentischen Identität zurück zu finden. Der gelebte Glaube an den Erlöser Jesus Christus gewinnt dabei eine grundlegende befreiende Bedeutung. Jesus Christus, Joh. 6,37: „Wer zu mir kommt, den werde ich nicht hinausstoßen."

En esta obra, que retoma las Conferencias Einstein impartidas por Ronald Dworkin en l. a.

« los angeles croyance, cette “certitude sans preuve”, pouvons-nous l’approcher, los angeles connaître ? Qu’est-elle exactement ? Une rébellion individuelle, ou au contraire un ralliement à un groupe, à une secte ? Un réconfort ou une aberration ? Alors que nous pensions, depuis le siècle dit “des Lumières”, aller vers plus de clarté, plus de maîtrise sur le monde et sur nous-mêmes, nous voyons que l. a. croyance a marché près de nous au même pas que los angeles connaissance, et que l’obscurité nous accompagne toujours, avec son cortège de rage et de sang. Nous voyons qu’une vieille alliance, que nous espérions dissipée, s’est renouée entre los angeles violence et los angeles foi. Pouvons-nous, le temps d’un livre, nous arrêter au bord du chemin, réfléchir ensemble, rappeler certains épisodes de notre crossé et nous demander s’il nous reste une probability, un jour, d’éteindre, ou d’adoucir, ce feu ancien qui nous déchire encore ? » J.-C. Carrière. Jean-Claude Carrière est scénariste, dramaturge et écrivain. Il est l’auteur de grands succès comme Einstein, s’il vous plaît, Fragilité, Tous en scène et L’Argent.
