Christ’s Teachings On Non-Violence In Christianity

There Are Four Essential Notions In Christian Non-Violence: The Presence Of The Oppressor, Of The Oppressed, Of Non-Violent Ways, And Of The Idea Of Justice. Nonviolence Is Examined From A Biblical Perspective, Attempting To Provide A Theological Basis For Nonviolence. Jesus’s Talks With Pontius Pilate And Paul’s Letter To Rome Were Examined In Order To Provide A Cohesive Framework For The Interpretative Area Of Civic Disobedience In The Bible.

Christian Ethics, Nonviolence, Civil Disobedience Are Some Of The Key Words.

Introduction

As If Gears In A Machine, Non-Violence Philosophy Is Founded On A Series Of Fundamental Beliefs. Despite The Fact That These Concepts Are Vital And Independent, They Do Not Operate On Their Own. Ideas Of Non-Violent Techniques, Justice, And Presence Of An Oppressor Have All Been Explored In This Article.

In Order To Defend The Concept Of Justice, One Must First Establish The Concept Of Truth As Something That Is Absolute, Unchangeable, Transcendent, Essential, And Exclusive. It Would Be A Mistake Of Logic If Truth Were Relative In This Context: When The Principle Of Non-Contradiction Is Invoked, It Formalises Truth’s Status As An Absolute. False Statements Are Made When One Claims That Something Does Not Exist; Or When One Claims Something Exists, But Denies That It Does Not.

The Non-Violent Ideology Accepts The Preservation And Alleviation Of Justice As Its Fundamental Goal, But Also Exposing The Oppressor’s Wrong.. Because The Truth Cannot Be Substituted By Fear Of Retribution, Public Humiliation, Apathy, Or Allegiance To The Dictator, Justice Does Not Allow For Submission Or Fidelity To The Oppressor. In The End, The Truth Is More Important Than Any Loyalty-Based System Of Values, Since Allegiance To The Dictator Is The Same As Commitment To Injustice, To Falsehoods, And To Evil.

This Article Examines Nonviolence From A Biblical Perspective, Attempting To Provide A Theological Basis For The Philosophy Of Nonviolence. As A Result, Two Assumptions Have Been Made: First, The Bible Is Inspired By God And Valuable For Teaching, Correcting And Teaching (2 Timothy 3:16, New International Version 2011). Second, The Bible Is Inerrant.

A Coherent Interpretative Structure Of Civil Disobedience’s Interpretive Space May Be Produced Using These Two Assumptions By Examining Jesus’ Conversations With Pontius Pilate (The Roman Governor), Paul’s Epistle To The Romans (The Apostle), And Daniel (The Prophet).

Methodology

As A Non-Violent Ideology, Non-Violence Emphasises The Preservation And Alleviation Of Justice, But Also Exposing The Oppressor’s Wrong. As Long As The Truth Is Exposed, There Is No Room For Obedience Or Loyalty To The Dictator. Fear Of Reprisals Or The Disgrace Of Public Gossip Cannot Substitute The Truth. Allegiance To The Dictator Is Like Loyalty To Injustice, Like Loyalty To Falsehoods, And Like Loyalty To Evil. The Truth About Any Creation Of Worth Is Built On Loyalty.

Non-Violence Has Two Logical Foundations: Worship And The Pursuit Of Justice. This Article’s Problem Forced Us To Examine These Two Sources. Imposition Of Cult Represents The Dual Character Of The Human Being And The Need For Prohibitive And Prescriptive Patterns; While The Desire For Justice Indicates The Tension Between Truth And Cultural Adaptation. One Of The Most Important Characteristics Of Justice Is Its View Of Truth As Immutable, Unchangeable By Any Cultural Traditions That Could Exist In The Future.

Hermeneutics Is An Essential Part Of Theology Since It Sets The Principles And Standards For The Interpretation Of The Bible’s Sacred Books. The Christian Basis Of Hermeneutics Plays A Vital Role Here. When It Comes To Hermeneutics, This Document Focuses On Particular Bible Tales’ Interpretations.

The Purpose Of This Paper Is To Provide A New Perspective On Nonviolence By Examining The Biblical Text From Three Perspectives: Hermeneutics, Epistemology, And Ontology. All Of These Elements Work Together To Create A Unified View Of Nonviolence Through The Lens Of Christian Faith. Various Categories Also Allow Us To Underline The Cognitive Part Of Hermeneutics In The Biblical Text, Which Is Reflected In These Fields Of Knowledge.

Conclusions

It Is The Nonviolent Philosophy’s Fundamental Goal To Defend And Alleviate Justice By Recognising The Presence Of The Notion Of Truth As A Place That Transcends The Material Conflict. It Is Via The Identification Of Cultural Patterns, The Desire To Follow Those Patterns, And Broad Approbation From The Guardians Of Traditions That Adaptation To Cultural Patterns Is Formed.

The Paper Takes Issue With The Idea That The Visualisation Of Truth Is Assigned To Subjectivity Throughout The Adaptation Process: It Is True As Long As It Corresponds To Traditions, As Long As It Does Not Contradict The Reality That Arises From Cultural Conceptual Moulds. True Meaning Shifts From Universal Fact To Cultural Fabrication, And From Objective To Subjective Referent, Since It Is No Longer A Fixed Idea. The Pursuit For Justice Becomes A Network Of Argumentation Tactics That Legitimise Cultural Activity When The Objective Is Replaced By The Subjective.

When Christian Nonviolence’s Prohibitive Principles Are Breached, Civil Disobedience Serves As A Tangible Shield For The Doctrine. When The Well-Being Of The Peoples Is At Danger, Christians Are Called To Civil Disobedience. When Our Lives Are In Jeopardy, When Our Freedom Is Constrained. For Christians, There’s No Space For Submission Because It Changes Them From Being Agents Of Good To Being Agents Of Evil, From Being Blessed To Being A Curse. When One Submits To Evil, He Or She Is Elevated To The Status Of Persecutor And Used As A Rationale By Those Who Persecute Them.

Visualizing The Truth Helps Build The Foundation For Justice. In View Of The Oppressor’s Proclivity For Lying, Truth Manipulation, And Self-Justification, The Pursuit Of Justice Becomes An Obligation For Every Christian.

Because The Truth Cannot Be Supplanted By Fear Of Retaliation, Humiliation Of The Public Rumour, Apathy Or Allegiance To The Ruler, The Quest For Justice Does Not Allow For Submission Or Fidelity To The Oppressor. Loyalty Is A Cultural Construct, But The Truth Transcends It In Every Way. Culture Creates Values That May Disclose, Conceal, Or Alter The Truth; As A Result, The Truth Is Independent Of Cultural Values.
