As a text that is influenced by the background of religious and cultural communities, Matthew has a unique way of maintaining the continuity of the ideals of his community. An interpretation model that utilizes the help of social sciences will be beneficial in understanding the ideals of the community that influenced Matthew. From the results of applying the social science way of thinking to the text of Mat 6:1-4, two important things must be understood. First, the teaching of almsgiving is a religious obligation. Second, the teachings on almsgiving aim to create “an egalitarian society” and avoid damaging the recipient's reputation socially, culturally, or religiously. Almsgiving content featuring fictitious and animated characters and storylines is offered as an alternative to responding to this phenomenon.</p> 2023-09-27T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Bonifasius Pradipta Putra Alam, Ireneus Yongki Artha Pieter Pembahasan Injil Harian dalam Komunitas Virtual Awam 2023-04-27T11:40:36+08:00 Tiro Angelo Daenuwy Indra Tanureja <p>This study seeks to provide an initial understanding of how lay Catholics in Indonesia engage with and interpret the texts of the Holy Scripture within virtual spaces. Specifically, it examines the <em>WhatsApp</em> group GEMA Kotabaru using netnography as a research method to explore the group's interpretation of the Gospel passage Luke 17:1-6. The findings reveal two distinct patterns of interpretation: symbolic and literal. Symbolic interpretation involves members connecting the text to metaphors of faith and religious practices, while literal interpretation focuses on extracting the precise meaning of the text, including the significance of the mustard seed. These findings highlight that lay Catholics in the <em>WhatsApp</em> group tend to center their Scripture readings around religious practices and strive to comprehend the text in a manner that resonates with their daily lives.</p> 2023-09-27T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Tiro Angelo Daenuwy, Indra Tanureja Kesatuan Liturgis dan Teologis Perayaan Trihari Suci 2023-09-22T10:30:16+08:00 Stenly Vianny Pondaag Checilia Cindy Jenifer Alida Pinedendi <p>This paper aims to explore the true meaning of the Mysterium Paschale, namely Christ's passion, death, and resurrection, based on the liturgical celebration of the Sacred Triduum where the Church solemnly celebrates the greatest mysteries of redemption, namely the special celebrations of the memorial of the Lord, crucified, buried, and risen. This paper is designed as a hermeneutic qualitative research. The theological examination leads the author to some critical findings. First, the Sacred Triduum should be seen as one liturgical celebration that lasts three days. The Sacred Triduum shows an unseparated sequence of liturgical celebrations. Then, the Sacred Triduum regarded as one liturgical celebration reveals in turn a unified theological meaning, namely Mysterium Paschale which consists of the mystery of the passion, death, and resurrection of Christ. By looking at the unity of the celebration of the Sacred Paschal Triduum and of its theological meaning, it is recommended that the faithful may prepare for the celebration thoroughly and be able to participate in the celebration of the Sacred Paschal Triduum as a whole so that they can experience the Easter Mystery as the culmination of the history of our redemption.</p> 2023-09-27T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Stenly Vianny Pondaag, Checilia Cindy Jenifer Alida Pinedendi Kebebasan Manusia dalam Predestinasi Ganda John Calvin berdasarkan Institutes of the Christian Religion 2023-09-04T15:01:46+08:00 Christian Arisandi Kiding Allo <p>This article focuses on John Calvin’s double predestination which is often considered to close the space for human freedom. It is said to be double because for Calvin God not only chooses those who are saved, but also actively chooses those who are rejected. The problem that arises is that humans are rejected and cursed because of their sins. This way of thinking implies that humans sin based on their freedom. Therefore, the relationship between God’s sovereign determination and human freedom to sin is the main focus of this study. An analytical descriptive approach will be taken on the theme of double predestination in Institutes and freedom in the philosophical tradition to clarify the relationship between humans and determinism. This description produces a perspective to see the space of human freedom in God’s absolute sovereignty.</p> 2023-09-27T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Christian Arisandi Kiding Allo Urgensi Etika bagi Komunikasi Politik 2023-06-27T11:44:13+08:00 Michael Carlos Kodoati <p>The writing aims to observe the urgency of ethics for political communication. Through literature research on Brian McNair's thought, one crucial question is revealed, is the increasing role of mass communication in the political process "good" or "bad" for democracy? McNair shows that political interaction in the public sphere is dirty and not by democratic ideals. In the end, it was found that political communication is a philosophical problem, in this case, ethics. However, bringing up the term political communication ethics ultimately fell on an oxymoron understanding. Even so, for the sake of democracy, there needs to be an understanding that the ethics of political communication is necessary after considering the dangers of political communication without ethics.</p> 2023-09-27T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Michael Carlos Kodoati Yesus Kristus Sang Gembala Penyembuh: Kristologi dalam Konteks Safeguarding terhadap Anak 2023-06-27T11:31:59+08:00 Antonius Bagas Prasetya Adi Nugraha <p>This article aims to inspire readers' perspectives and help the Indonesian Catholic Church act appropriately and wisely when facing cases of sexual violence and abuse. The method used in this article is Theology in Creation, which is used to deepen the understanding of Christ as a healing shepherd who cares and fights for justice. The systematics of this article begins with the introduction of the problem, followed by a discussion of cases of sexual abuse that occurred in the history of the Catholic Church. Then, the article discusses power in Michel Foucault's theory and its challenges for political sociology. Next, the article highlights the importance of building a safe culture within the Church and protecting children from abuse. The novelty of this article lies in the Theology in Creation approach used to deepen the understanding of Christ as the healing shepherd. The article also invites the Indonesian Catholic Church to become more concerned and responsive to cases of sexual violence and abuse and to implement effective protection protocols.</p> 2023-09-27T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Antonius Bagas Prasetya Adi Nugraha
