Role Of Theology Forums In Saving The Future

By Tracie Knight
The current economic, social and political trends are threatening to change the view that Christianity has given people towards life. There are several questions that people need to ask themselves, such as does the current organization of the society promote equality? Theology forums have a responsibility to shape the world. The current trends leave many to wonder if this is how God wants the society to be organized.

It is a concern that when highly regarded people speak they give people an image of a future where power will be in the hands of economically and politically powerful. The simple elite will be honored more and the disadvantaged in the society will no longer have a voice. It gives an image of a future where economy is expending quickly and the gaps between the rich and less fortunate is widening.

Theological groups are the only movements that can save the future. If the trend continues the minority and disadvantaged will no longer be heard. We will have a setting where they are not given an opportunity to be involved in decision making. The end result will be a people who have lost the meaning of life, human dignity is eroded and human rights no longer recognized.

In order to save the future of the society this trends of life and ideologies need to be challenged. Christianity condemns divisions hence we should work towards eliminating them. As we struggle towards a better future we should remember the need to maintain morals and values.

The world needs urgent change. Its goals and values should take a new dimension that is qualitative and interpersonal rather than personal. The community should focus more on real needs of the people and their aspirations. We should ensure maintain a good relationship with the environment, God and people we live with.

Every nation is at a moment change. The human history and race is faced with the challenge of making choices about the future. Currently Ireland is focusing on a new journey where it is faced with choices that must be made. These moments are vital and we need to participate in them. The gospel encourages people to be involved in shaping a future.

Ireland gives us a clear picture of the trends that are threatening the future. Despite the economic, social and political progress that has been witnessed in Ireland for the last few decades there is still social inequality that exists which is the major cause of poverty. Despite the fact that unemployment has greatly reduced, the divisions in the society have widened further. The gap between the rich and the poor in the society has become wider.

Working towards progress and achievement of goals without considering values that should be maintained can lead to adverse problems. Religious groups should ensure that the morals and values of the community are maintained even as people struggle for a better future. Where all groups and people are not allowed to contribute in decision making there is a high probability injustice may arise.
