V God - Man Interrelations
Waste cans are tossed by the wind,
Their tinkle subsides, though it blows:
I speak with a whispering voice,
I gently unfold your eyes
To spread out a new landscape,
Where I name plants and flowers,
I grant you solace in my palms, in peace,
My words, gestures and promise are clear:
Pass on my love to all mankind.

V 1 Remarks
The writer confesses the Christian Faith in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Mat 28,19)
Intended is an outline of God's grace towards man in his dismal existential position.
Definition of truth for the essay is: have all aspects of the distance God - man been considered?
All bible quotations are out of TNIV.
1a) God's self-description
1a1) God is creator of heaven and earth with
a1,1) Space, time, energies, materials, forces, plants, animals and humans. (Gen 1,1)
Genesis 1 intends to give a sounder comprehension of phenomena of nature, man and their origin,
than the pagan, mythological, animistic thinking of the times provided.
a1,2) Grace, revelation and spirit for man to exhaust His sources of life. (Ps 36,8)
1a2) God said to Moses: ‘I am who I am.’ (Ex 3,14)
1a3) 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one.' (Deu 6,4)
1a4) 'They [the earth and the heavens] will perish, but you remain; they will wear out like a garment.
You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed.' (Heb 1,11-12)
1a5) Any image of the Lord would be in man's existential situation completely inadequate, calling for
a larger understanding of God, nature and man than we have today.
1b) The Word of God
His Word speaks through revelation, prophets, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. (Rom 8,26)
The Word of God is comprehensive life science. 'Seek me and live' (Amo 5,4)
'See, I am setting before you the way of life and the way of death.' (Jer 21,8)
Look at life, disease, danger, war and death. Question them. Choose life.
1b1) His Teaching is divine pedagogic.
He wants to inscribe his instructions into man's hearts and minds. (Jer 31,33; Heb 10,16)
He wants man to overcome sin and in faith work in His vineyard. (Luk 20,9)
He wants man and society to 'Produce fruit in keeping with repentance.' (Luk 3,8)
1b2) Essential components of His Word for man are
b2,1) Faith, abhorring violence.
b2,2) Reason, abhorring contradiction.
b2,3) Maturity, abhorring omission.
1c1) Man is a complex mental, functional, multi-dimensional, regenerating form of life, reaching from his
human center, conviction, into the extremes of life. He is independent and social, abstract and concrete,
dynamic and passive, free and submissive, reflective and thoughtless.
1c2) Acting forces are generated out of spiritual, mental, social, psychological, emotional and biological
motivations and expressed by communication and action along possible relations in various modes.
1c3) Essential parts are a physiological base, freedom, development and conviction.
1c4) Man is seen globally in past, present and future by self-set, objective and spiritual standards.
1d1) Society, a man made object, constitutes itself out of man, population and man-man relations.
1d2) Acting forces are that of man, growing into cause setting, interwoven social forces as larger motiva-
tional engines to initiate and realize along possible relations a social subject matter.
1d3) The sum of multiplying individual-social forces are responsible for all man made phenomena.
They are able to sustain, mold, advance or destroy man, society and nature.
1d4) Essential parts are a physiological base, freedom, development, public discussion, problem solving,
conflict solving and ethics.
1d5) Individual, social and historical events are open in time because of the large number of factors.
1d6) Results of individual-collective actions are seen by the corresponding standards for man.
V 2 Man's position
'...dust you are and to dust you will return.' (Gen 3,19)
The distance between man and God is infinite.
Man cannot bridge the distance out of his own resources.
The distance can be overcome by the grace of God.
2a) Man’s position in nature
2a1) He is an organic form of life within the cosmos.
2a2) His individual mortal organisms are tied to a short life span.
2a3) He is physically, chemically and biologically dependent on the micro-, meso- and macro-cosmos.
2a4) He has a universal genetic code in common with a multifarious plant and animal life.
2a5) He stands at the end of a long process of evolution.
2a6) He stands at the end of a long heterotrophic food chain.
2b) Man's physical constitution
His physical constitution, community, succession of generations and physiological base are vulnerable to
adverse natural and social environmental conditions.
2b1) In nature to dangers by weather, terrain, animals and by man made degradation of resources.
2b2) In society to imbalances, deception and violence.
2b3) By minute traces to natural, synthesized and technological toxins for eg electro-magnetic-bio-
chemical-genetic manipulations to steer him genetically, physiologically, psychologically and ethically.
2b4) Large scale to irresponsible political-social behavior, leading to planetary catastrophes, collapse of
political-social systems and with modern technologies to self-extinction.
2c) Man's psychological constitution
He acts out of a mix of archaic, instinctive, biological, emotional, psychic, social, mental and spiritual
needs, drives, motivations, intentions and conceptions, spanning as inner neurological rooms of move-
ment the innate subconsciousness to an independent, self-aware, self-constructed psychic reality.
2d) Man's mental constitution
Evolutionary forces have elevated man above an animal by a fraction. With increasing freedom of ex-
pression, reduced are natural instincts and opened up is a huge reservoir of con- and destructive forces.
2d1) At birth his state is helplessness and non-knowledge.
His collectively acquired knowledge constitutes only a drop out of an ocean.
2d2) He can recognize objects with their identity, characteristics, relations, forces, interactions and ef-
fects quantitatively and qualitatively through observation, experience, reason and artistic-contemplative-
scientific methods, but only within a very limited range
d2,1) quantitatively, even with an eg 106 increase in resolution of present day devices, reaching down
to ~ 10-20 m, he cannot measure eg Planck’s length lp = 1.616 x 10 -35 m.
d2,2) qualitatively to not more than 5% of the energy-matter of the universe of what has to be there.
2d3) He can recognize the past, present and predictable future with objects' positive-negative effects,
d3,1) but he does not have the knowledge to survive over geological time spans in the cosmos.
d3,2) but he does not have a trustworthy concept of life, searching and erring into all directions.
2d4) He can mold objects in applications, utilizing space-time and transformation of energy-matter, but
those he cannot explain with their complete origin, forces and behavior or create them of his own.
2d5) He cannot transgress boundaries, universal natural, mental and spiritual limits between man, nature
and God, without heading into misdevelopments, conflicts and damages to himself.
2d6) Enlargements of frontiers of the thinkable, calculable, do- and usable, unfolding new capabilities,
are possible by collectively supported, generations running, stepwise, systematic, institutionalized efforts.
2e) Man made products
Man's self-made products by utilization of energy and matter are limited by their properties, man's imagi-
nation and knowledge and are as
2e1) Mental-human products unintelligible to any outsider without its language.
2e2) Mental-human-natural products decaying through environmental forces over time.
V 3 The guiding light
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. (Ps 119,105)
Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life.' (Joh 14,6)
The three wise Magi from the east followed the star of new born life to worship. (Mat 2,1-12)
3a) As a star it directs human nomads on their search for a future of man over cosmic time spans.
It provides to man's naturally given limited perspective a fix point of envisioned and concrete hope.
It reaches out to faith, the only joint divine and human component of man. Rejecting this offer, the crea-
ture without the creator disappears in unintelligible nothingness (Gaudium et Spes 36), as man has been
put back in place repeatedly by cosmological insults.
The light radiates through His word: the revelation, prophets, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
▫ Increase of knowledge about man and society and with it maturity.
▫ Increase of knowledge about nature and with it reason.
▫ Increase of knowledge about God and with it faith.
▫ Integration of new knowledge into overall comprehension with values, responsibilities and tasks.
▫ Construction of a red line of constitutionality, a social enterprise towards cosmic emancipation.
3b) Human natural-mental-spiritual efforts are individual ones, which can always be practiced collectively
and be expanded into spiritual forces. They comprise
▫ In maturity and enlightenment adhering to the categories of content, reality, functions, logical and
mathematical space, presentation, environments, cosmic environment and inhibiting factors.
▫ In reason and explanation adhering to the categories of quantity, quality, relation and modality.
Major forms are questioning, searching and cognition.
▫ In faith adhering to the priorities of non-violence and address of major issues.
Major forms are prayer, call, church, exegesis, dogma and overall comprehension.
3c) Both, revelation and spiritual efforts utilize foremost the spoken, written and illustrated word.
'I will make my word in your mouth a fire and these people the wood it consumes.' (Jer 5,14)
▫ A word is in line of exposition the first building block of thought, language, text, description, inter-
pretation, evaluation and application.
▫ It stands with text and picture at the center of human praxis.
▫ It represents with intention, conception and expression basic human driving forces.
▫ It represents an object from cognition to application, crossing subject - object relations.
▫ It employs foremost direct and clean language to further adequate reception and response.
▫ It can add aesthetic elements for highlighting and embellishment.
▫ It lays out all factors from cause to effect in a seamless line of argumentation.
▫ It becomes with duplication, propagation and application mass effective.
▫ It achieves political-social education, regulation, supervision and conflict solving.
▫ It overcomes in His spirit with faith, truth and justice hostile forces.
▫ It realizes a durable society, expansion of boundaries and long term survival of man.
▫ It envisions cosmic emancipation as a co-religious-human task.
V 4 Human efforts
'...and be taken forward to maturity,...' (Heb 6,1)
Human-social objects are understood in maturity.
4a) Its categories are content, reality, functions, logical and mathematical space, presentation, environ-
ments, cosmic environment and inhibiting factors.
Man is centered in his faith and convictions, delineating his intentions, conceptions, values, responsibili-
ties, priorities, tasks, results in relation to himself, society, nature and the infinite.
4b1) He enlightens public comprehension of people towards a sound feeling for good and evil and a
personal will to question, search, see, think, act for themselves and to proceed towards new horizons.
4b2) He acts with self-determination, -preservation, -interpretation and -realization.
4b3) He generates the essentials for man and society.
4b4) Telos of mind aims at moral utopia, ethical awareness for a long term future of man.
V 5 Mental efforts
'- let the wise listen and add to their learning,...' (Pro 1,5)
Natural objects are explained in reason.
5a) Its categories are quantity, quality, relation and modality.
5b1) Man questions all objects. Basic questions are
◦ Who is God? What are faith, truth, love and hope?
◦ What is nature? What are reason, energy, matter, time and space?
◦ What is man? What are maturity, intentions, conceptions and mental operations?
◦ What is life? What is death? Which is the best way to proceed?
5b2) Questions, search and cognition generate knowledge about objects' forces, characteristics and re-
lations in the ethos to pursue true over false. Compiled knowledge about the cosmos generates its laws
of behavior, technologies, applications, innovations and expansion of boundaries.
Man searches in the directions of his questions and also looks out for uncharted areas to fill them out.
Searched is intrudingly and pryingly to find a starting point, as he gains access to all objects with the
tools of cognition, first zooming into the item and then proceeding from the simple to the complex.
It is the most basic of all individual-collective generations running challenges of mankind.
b3,1) Main intent is to shed light on an object and to investigate further for a more accurate description.
b3,2) Epistemic research goals are knowledge and avoidance of errors.
b3,3) Political-social research goal is to embed enlightenment into public participation.
b3,4) Scaled up intent is promotion of the spirit of man and integrity of nature.
b3,5) Each object reveals an objective, subjective and relational factor.
b3,6) Each object reveals a spiritual, natural and human dimension.
b3,7) Data domain reaches throughout all layers of reality, from the micro- to macro-cosmos and from
the beginning to the end of the universe. There is no definite, cognition exhausted object.
b3,8) Processes run along all factors of the object, relation and subject
◦ Objective factors are: Focus, observation, denotation, description, deliberation, interpretation, evalu-
ation, documentation, propositional support, publication, public discussion, problem solving, conflict
solving and development.
◦ Relation factors are: Information, transmission and medium.
◦ Subjective factors are: Onto-phylogenetic development, the senses, emotions, mental capabilities,
experience, way of life, self-understanding, historical factors, schools of thought, present day trends,
institutional factors, codetermining factors, ethics and inhibiting factors.
V 6 Spiritual efforts
Concerning this salvation, the prophets...searched intently and with the greatest care... (1Pet 1,10)
Spiritual objects are grasped in faith.
Its result oriented priorities are non-violence and address of major issues
6a1) Faith is man’s bond to God by divine inspiration and interwoven human vision.
'Faith is being sure... of what we do not see.' (Heb 11,1)
Faith is a selfless intent to help man and nature now and tomorrow.
Its credo, a symbolon, accepting the living God (1Tim 4,9), is a synopsis of catechesis.
6a2) A living organism, it renews itself out of repentance, confession, penance, reconciliation, contem-
plation, prayer, freedom and peace. (2Cor 3,18)
It carries and gives direction to spiritual-mental-human-natural efforts in an open mentality.
Its range extends throughout all subjective and objective dimensions of space, time and realities.
'The fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth.' (Eph 5,9)
'Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.' (Eph 5,11)
'But my righteous one will live by faith.' (Heb 10,38)
6a3) Faith forms out a chain of adaptively turned beads on a string to carry an envisioned human project
with spirit, reason, maturity in overall comprehension of values, responsibilities, priorities, tasks and re-
sults throughout all single steps of realization.
6a4) Faith is extremely vulnerable to hypocritical seduction, subversion, corruption and criminalization.
6a5) As an intent it stands before His judgment, - not accumulated good deeds. (Tit 3,5)
6b) Spiritual forces
Bundling faith, reason, maturity and ethics, they refute other forces in any political-social environment by
example and advice where welcome, by example and criticism where corruption prevails.
6b1) They spring out of spiritual needs, drives, ambitions and ways of life.
6b2) They free themselves from moral failures by purification in faith.
6b3) They collect themselves as eg esprit, ethos, conscience, conviction, faith, prayer and call.
6b4) They speak as eg lone voices, institutions, traditions, zeitgeist, activisms and historic events.
6b5) Collective spiritual efforts are conducted institutionalized, systematically, generations running to
pass on His word and traditions to succeeding generations mass effectively.
Prayer is communication with God.
6c1) It collects the spiritual-mental-natural senses to step into the presence of God.
6c2) It trusts in the Lord 'We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.' (Heb 6,19)
6c3) Its main subjects are praise, thanksgiving, confession, question, request and intercession.
6c4) It can adopt various forms, eg individual or collective, private or public, spontaneous or ritual.
6c5) His answer can range from direct response to silence.
Inspired by the Holy Spirit, who is without limits, can be every single person. (Luk 11,13)
6d1) An appearance of a spiritual symbol of God in simile (epiphany) indicates His presence.
6d2) A miracle is the working of the hand of God against a natural course of events.
6d3) A vocation centers on a gift, responsibility, task and result as a contribution to life.
6d4) A sign or voice in a vision transmits mostly softly, quietly, encouragingly an instruction:
'By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family.
By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness...' (Heb 11,7)
A church is an institution of organized spiritual forces.
6e1) It defines itself out of its past history, present faith and common destiny of man.
6e2) It represents a religion by its collective credo, renewals, teachings, traditions and spiritual life.
6e3) Its faith and theology, interpreting His word, aim at the best possible finding of His will. (Col 1,9)
Theology transforms the mystery of the hidden God (Isa 45,15), His will (Eph 1,8), works (Ps 92,5) and
incarnate Son Jesus (Heb 1,3) into truth and presence. (Joh 16,13)
It leads by example (Rom 12,21), taking a stand against depravity (Ps 45,7; 1Tim 6,12), protecting its
sheep against damages (Ps 23,1; Joh 10,14) and warning of dangers to come. (Neh 9,26; Rev 22,20)
6e4) Its congregations worship the Lord in a liturgy with word, music, song, confession, credo, reading,
sermon, instructions, reconciliation, intercession, sacrament, prayer and praise.
6e5) In its mission, it spreads His word and grace to everybody to be heard, discussed, understood, ac-
cepted and converted to. (Kerygma) (Mat 28,19)
6e6) It assembles in synods to develop opinions on regional and universal issues.
6e7) It opens rooms of movement for individual and collective spiritual forces. (Ps 119,45; Gal 5,13)
6e8) It cooperates with all people carrying responsibility for the common good. (Ex 33,19; Eph 6,8)
6e9) It promotes the global ecumenical movement in dialogs to let the faith of religions grow together.
6e10) Its group services enclose eg
e10,1) Individual-collective administration and maintenance.
e10,2) Contemplation with study, reflection, evaluation, correction, compensation and restart.
e10,3) Exerzitien train the mind to arrive at spiritually responsible decisions in imitation of Christ.
6e11) Its local communal services are mainly worship (Ps 29,2; Luk 4,8), catechesis and schooling (Ecc
1,13; 2Tim 2,15), healing (2Kin 2,21; Luk 9,6), diaconate and charity. (Pro 19,17; Act 9,36)
6e12) Its regional, professional political-social services are mainly regulation (Exo 35,1; Heb 10,16),
supervision (Ecc 3,15; Luk 16,2) and conflict solving. (Mel 2,5; Mat 5,9)
6e13) Against prosecution, as ‘Christians are subject of hate because they oppose worldly pleasures’
(Epistle to Diognetus V), its survival strategies are independence, love, truth, unity and perseverance.
6e14) Its bishops, priests and laity as torchbearers of His Word are accountable to the people.
Their true intent, sacrifice or egocentricity, can be read from their actions as a visible acid test.
Against violators of basic human rights the public has a right to criticism, resistance and prosecution.
Exegesis is cognition of spiritual objects.
They are grasped in faith. Its categories are non-violence and address of major issues.
6f1) At center stand word and sense in direct language to further adequate reception and response.
6f2) Major intent is empirical, aesthetical and spiritual reconstruction, interpretation and evaluation of the
scriptures and testimonials (depositum fidei) by a diversity of methods along all causal factors.
6f3) Text reconstruction aims at recovery of the original or furthest back wording, language, document,
illustration, commentary, distribution, version, translation and media praxis.
6f4) Situational analysis describes the immediate psychological, communicational, communal-social,
economic, scientific, political, zeitgeist, ritual, theological conditions and context of place and time.
6f5) Text analysis describes form, style, content, semantics, grammar, syntax, diction, structures, rela-
tions, models, references, creations, paradigmatic and syntagmatic lines, semiotics, pragmatics, medi-
ums, performances, artistic renderings, position, logic, function, usages, variations, statistics, coher-
ence, elasticity, centricity, stability, uniqueness, aesthetics, entropy, context and inter-context.
f5,1) Text history describes conditions, traditions, editions, paths, interpretations and influences.
f5,2) Text comparison describes its traditional, cultural and inter-confessional contexts.
f5,3) Text Interpretation highlights the intent of the author with his perspective, biography and real life
conditions teleologically, tropologically, typologically, eschatologically and femininely.
g5,4) Considered deductively and inductively, restrictively and extensively are place, time, type, com-
monality, generality, similarity, analogy, probability, possibility, complexity and functionality.
f5,5) Assisting are clarifications, outline of limits, adaptions to languages and cultures.
f5,6) Assisting are archeological findings and scientific methods of all fields.
f5,7) Evaluation is by standards of accuracy, plausibility, credibility, sincerity and significance, check-
ing also for eg errors, gaps, add-ons, changes, corruption, instrumentalization and deception.
Dogma constitutes an abstract of the fundamental teaching out of divine revelation, tradition, worship,
preaching, observation, contemplation, study, education and criticism.
As credo it is approbated, publicized and serving as study guide for the old and new. (Mat 13,52)
6g1) Its intent in imitation of Christ is pedagogical towards sound comprehension, principles and praxis
by true light for all life and people (Joh 1,9) for their spiritual, mental and physical welfare.
6g2) It comprises, accessible to all, three basic catechisms: a religious catechism about God, reconciling
man with God, a natural catechism of the creation, reconciling man with nature and a secular catechism
of man, society and worldly affairs, reconciling man with man.
6g3) It incorporates a multitude of dynamic aspects, eg religious, political, military, economical, environ-
mental, cultural, existential, ontological, analytical, self-critical and speculative ones.
6g4) It incorporates in an open system testimony of all people in the unity of mankind. (Act 17,26)
6g5) It promotes cognitive efforts as a comprehensive analysis of all objects towards innocence (Mat
18,2), based on His eternal (Isa 54,8) love (Joh 3,16), light (1Joh 1,5) and mercy. (Eph 2,4)
6g6) Development of teaching is by opening up of new sources, enlargement of context, raising of stand-
ards, impulses from public discussions, new grasping of issues, advances in knowledge, methods, main-
tenance of knowledge and technologies, correction of errors and failures.
6g7) Inter-confessional dialogs arrive by rectification, compensation, forgiveness, reconciliation, toler-
ance, respect of human rights, hospitality, cooperation, integrative praxis and recognition of interde-
pendencies at incorporating statements of faith with superseding, generalizing and unifying principles.
6g8) It self-restricts its statements, being first a spiritual-mental tool of cognition. As a single light beam
of truth out of divine abundance, it abstains above all from absolute definitions of truths.
6g9) The finality of the divine revelation is up to His infinite wisdom. (Joh 5,20)
Human teachings are superseded by enlargements of revelation, comprehension and praxis.
6h) Overall comprehension is a figure of faith, grown historically out of man's holy image before the Lord.
It represents present day knowledge about God, nature, society, man with their causal factors to be
practically applied on envisioned human projects according to values, responsibilities, priorities and tasks
to reach with a positive intent an acceptable result. A single broken link in the chain can foil it.
A value gives a direction to a course of action, not to fall back on itself.
A responsibility combines a value and hope with the betterment of man in unity and environment in re-
spect as long time challenges over succeeding generations.
Priorities concentrate on non-violence and address of major issues.
Means are cognition and enlightenment of the general population.
Tasks requires the fitting spiritual-natural-human tools like out of a well stacked tool chest of a technician
to be applied in sound theory and praxis to achieve universal treatment of all objects with their causal
forces and properties in the
▫ Dimensions of God, nature and man within faith, reason and maturity.
▫ Range from the micro- to meso- to macro-cosmos.
▫ Process from generating intention and conception to cognition, planning, decision, pooling of re-
sources, public relations, realization, regulation, supervision and correction.
▫ Accompanying usages, formalities, etiquettes and liturgies.
Man adopts for free self-interpretation as a self-set, defining value and standard: human dignity, being
universal, invariable, inalienable, codifiable, falsifiable and livable.
Scaled up intent is to expand sound theology’s, maturity’s, reason’s and ethic's freedoms.
6i1) Value classes
Universal values apply to all people in the past, present and future on a global scale.
a1,1) Existential values protect basic human rights to life.
a1,2) Humanitarian values protect basic personal rights to growth.
a1,3) Framework values are
▫ Ethically: unity of mankind, justice, due process and conflict solving.
▫ Naturally: integrity of nature.
▫ Human: collection, management, application and expansion of knowledge.
a1,4) Object values are
▫ Ethically: non-violence and truth.
▫ Naturally: application of reason.
▫ Human: application of maturity.
6i2) Value scale
Values are ordered hierarchically according to significance and range of validity.
They are deduced from the dignity of man by an unbroken interlinked tree structure.
i2,1) Primary universal values
▫ Primary universal spiritual value is love, being kind, patient and protecting. It abhors violence.
It extends to the low (Mat 25,40), lost (Luk 15,4) and hostile (Mat 5,43).
▫ Primary universal human value is dignity, extending equally to all, disregarding origin, race,
color, gender, age, position, culture and faith.
▫ Primary universal natural value is integrity of nature.
i2,2) Secondary universal spiritual, human and natural value is truth. It abhors deception.
It extends to all objects as far as self-awareness, curiosity, imagination and ambition do.
i2,3) Tertiary universal and primary value for society is unity of mankind. It abhors segregation. As ex-
istential value it is based on equity and justice with the rule of law.
i2,4) Fourth universal, humanitarian values are freedom, emancipation and welfare.
i2,5) Professional standards are guidelines of state of the art field knowledge and praxis.
i2,6) Item specific standards are bench marks of properties and performance.
Man is responsible to act in stewardship for the creation (Gen 2,15) and will have to answer '...people will
have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.' (Mat 12, 36)
6j1) Man can be held accountable, as he can research, know, precalculate, restrain and advance his
singular and habitual, individual and collective, present and future actions.
6j2) General responsibility rests with the sovereign, the people, on a global, timeless scale.
6j3) It is shared according to contributing parts by eg the political representative, researcher, developer,
producer, sales person, end user, commentator and affected party.
6j4) Its scope comprises all values and tasks within man's radius of action.
Standard values of life and corresponding executive tasks cover human rights, the essentials of a dura-
ble society and integrity of nature.
Today, it does not suffice anymore to 'Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock... Be shepherds of
the church of God…' (Act 20,28), but requires raising the standards of care for all people to establish
legal and practical safeguards against the self-extinction of mankind.
6j5) Report is due to eg supervisor, affected parties, public conscience, posterity and life.
6j6) Faulty execution requires damage assessment and re-establishment.
6j7) Guilt is determined by public trial, sentencing a person, team or population group with eg censure,
loss of position or rights, restitution claim, fine or imprisonment.
Priorities of faith with sound theology are non-violence and address of major issues.
His Spirit with faith, truth and justice overcomes hostile forces (Rev 19,13), abhorring violence.
'If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also.' (Luk 6,29)
Means are cognition and enlightenment in seamless argumentation to convince and correct.
As first step of mental processes it transforms forms of being into forms of consciousness.
Objects are investigated for their forces, characteristics and relations by disciplinary and interdisciplinary
contemplative, scientific and aesthetic methods to generate valid knowledge.
6k3) Major issues to be promoted generations running, systematically, institutionalized on the local, re-
gional, national and international levels are
k3,1) Public education in the basics and training in a professional field.
k3,2) Acquisition of knowledge about God, nature, society and man.
k3,3) Provision of the essentials of a durable society.
k3,4) Public political-legal information about possible misuses of power.
k3,5) Public political-legal supervision of positions of power.
k3,6) Conflict solving and correction of violations in due process of law in a determined, though long
winding, complex causal chain from conception of projects to regulation to supervision to law enforce-

'He will judge between many peoples and will settle disputes for strong nations.' (Mic 4,3)
A task is faithfulness to His Word (Neh 13,30) and obedience to righteousness. (Rom 6,16)
6l1) It is contended for and accepted with conviction, initiative and expertise.
6l2) It defines the object of attention, value, legal protection and benefit.
6l3) It sets up a structure of values, a codex of local, state, federal and international laws with a corre-
sponding court system to cover standard tasks. It asks each value and regulation:
Is the major issue up to man’s radius of action identified? Are the counter-acting forces identified?
6l4) Supervision controls compliance with legal regulations.
6l5) Conflict solving by mediation, arbitration and litigation constitutes the most urgent task.
6l6) Ethics as a last bulwark takes a stand against gross criminal corruption.
6l7) Constitutionality serves as aspirational red thread in cosmic dimensions to guard against:
l7,1) Prestige, greed, hate, as most of man strives for advantages, predominance and elimination of
opposition, employing any power methods of deception and violence conceivable.
l7,2) 'Statesmanship’, regarding power tools as the only reality creating, molding, controlling and secu-
ring means of an historic achievement.
l7,3) Power as the most narrow, vile, hateful, persistent, scheming archaic notion, falling in its criminal
capacity indefinitely low and running into its self-destructive end, if not arrested.
'Evil will slay the wicked’ (Ps 34,21); ‘Scatter the nations who delight in war.’ (Ps 68,30)
Active social forces bring into interaction originators, populations, man made objects, nature and God.
They determine the state of political-social affairs and are able to advance or destroying man, society
and nature. They can

m1,1) Collapse of political-social systems through open and hidden combat.
m1,2) Planetary catastrophes through depletion of resources, pollution and climate change.
m1,3) Self-extinction of mankind through A-B-C-G-R-N warfare.

V 7 Summary
'There are no non-humans.' (Gustavo Gutiérrez)
Today, there is not one major church around the world that does not fail its responsibilities to fill the
larger issues of life, faith, love, hope, truth with real meaning and guard against their despotic perversion.
7a) Non-address of major issues
Not one church addresses the zeitgeist issues in substance, leading to depravation of human esprit.
▫ Pseudo-mental products like illusions of human capabilities-conveniences and social programming.
▫ Power as the most devastating archaic notion, narrow, vile, hateful, persistent and scheming instru-
mentalizing values, constitutional structures and processes towards their self-destructive end.
▫ Man himself, his intentions, conceptions, convictions, values, responsibilities and expressions with
their consequences. He is largely a brutal creature, applying any means for his advancement.
▫ Man's position in society with its service functions. He does not know how to overcome inhibiting fac-
tors by enlightenment or handle conflict solving between hostile parties efficiently.
▫ Man's position against nature and God. He does not project himself into the future, combining a spir-
itual hope with a real prospect in cosmic dimensions.
7b) Hegemonic policies
Most churches have forged alliances with global players for exploitation of man and nature.
▫ Continuing are famines, epidemics, inequities of life essentials, overpopulation, environmental de-
struction, leading as mass effective misdevelopments to planetary catastrophes.
▫ Continuing are exploitation, polarization of wealth, human rights violations, leading as mass effective
power tools to refugee streams, terrorism, mass murder, war and destruction of social fabrics.
▫ Threatened is a 'human hand directed evolution' to transform man into a cloned cyborg-chimera with
augmented capabilities by programmable electro-magnetic-mechano-bio-chemical-genetic means.
▫ A large number of public institutions participates in a global, clandestine, dirty B-C-R-G-N war between
government and private defence leagues' security services of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Worlds and their
populations. Together they operate a global system of labor camps for electro-magnetic-bio-chem-
genetic programming of social-psychological-physiological profiles and elimination of dissident, hostile
and moral voices.
7c) Public Accusations
The major church and secular political-scientific-social leaders are by universal standards accused of
image fascism and in hundreds of millions of cases a year worldwide of
|7c1) Environmental violations ||
||by eg pollution, eradication, depletion, climatic shift|
|7c2) Deception ||
||by eg misinformation, mock discussion, opinion control|
|7c3) Exploitation ||
||by eg unfair trade conditions|
|7c4) Subjugation ||
||by eg torture, enslavement, sterilization, child misuse, rape|
|7c5) Degrading ||
||by eg surveillance, stalking, profile control|
|7c6) Physical injury ||
||by eg gassing, radiation, poisoning|
|7c7) Murder ||
||by eg physical injury, terrorism, civil strife and war|
'For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries.' (Rev 18, 3).
The major church and secular political-scientific-social leaders do not heed the historic warnings of colo-
nialism, two world wars and genocide, today as escalating gross corruptions with modern technologies of
mass destruction to lead inevitably to planetary catastrophes, enslavement and collapse of political-so-
cial systems and self-extinction of mankind.
