How the Son of Betlehem, Jesus Christ transformed the world

 

Herland Report: Jesus Christ transformed the world: Born in a manger, far from society leaders and presidential palaces, the symbolism of Jesus’ birth carries oceans of hope for those less fortunate.

And for the rich: he was worshipped by Eastern astrologers who found his star and brought their wealth to lay down at his feet.

And this was his main message: “Love thy God and love thy Neighbour. Do good to others. Live in such a way that you treat others with respect, meet needs, give to those who need a hand.” 

“Be honest, honourable, faithful. Keep the commandments and get a great life that prepares you for the afterlife, in which there will be judgement for how you spent your days on this planet.”

The fervent and furious hatred towards the simple message of Jesus now permeate Western media elites, the political establishment and our university structures to the extent that they do everything in their power to quench the Christmas spirit, writes founder of The Herland Report, historian of comparative religions Hanne Herland.

In this age, we hail materialism, greed, hedonism, drug abuse and faithlessness. How we expect our culture to flourish with these kinds of attitudes, is quite another question.

Let me therefore sum up the very values that stem from the message of the son of Betlehem, Jesus Christ, the very foundation of our Western civilization.

Jesus Christ transformed the world: So, how did revolutionary message of the philosopher and spiritual leader, Jesus Christ impact Western civilization?

World leading historians agree that Christian philosophy was revolutionary in that its definition of humanity was inclusive of all people, an altogether new view on the value of human life.

Robert R. Palmer, formerly a distinguished historian at Princeton and Yale, and Joel Colton, professor at Duke University, state in A History of the Modern World that Christian philosophy was revolutionary in that its definition of humanity was inclusive of all people, an altogether new view on the value of human life.

It was Christianity that introduced the principle of equality, which unleashed the revolutionary idea that each man, regardless of class, gender and race, has a unique value.

Despite the fact that this viewpoint would later be seen as a secular idea and one of the cornerstones of secular society, there is no doubt about its religious origins.

The early Christians worked to relieve suffering, help the poor and so on. They taught humility and that all men were brothers.

Jesus Christ transformed the world: Contrary to what many think, brainwashed as we are by the progressive New Left atheists, a number of our most important values come from the Judeo-Christianity heritage and its ethics.

Famous German philosopher and atheist Jürgen Habermas states in The Dialectics of Secularization: On Reason and Religion that Christian theology in the Middle Ages and Spanish scholasticism as the origins of what we today call human rights.

Habermas points out that modern moral philosophical and political theory pays a high price for excluding the very Christian ethics that in history has demonstrated the ability to motivate individuals to care for one another, to perform just actions.
