Abstract: Kaip šiandieną įsivaizduojamas ir apibūdinamas žmogaus ir Dievo ryšys? Kaip suvokiamas maldos gyvenimas? Ar jis laikomas natūraliu ir giliausią žmogaus prigimtį atitinkančiu dalyku, be kurio žmogaus egzistencija stokoja esminio dėmens? Straipsnis analizuoja dvi skirtingas antropologines pažiūras: 1) žmogaus ryšys su Dievu traktuojamas kaip neesminis žmogiškosios būties priedėlis; 2) žmogaus ryšys su Dievu laikomas esminiu žmogiškosios egzistencijos sandu, be kurio mūsų būtis lieka neišbaigta ir neišsiskleidusi
Anthropological problems today have become more relevant both in academic spheres and in every day life. What we have in our hearts and in our minds about human beings are reflected on our ideas that will later become our projects and actions in life. Every person has his/her own anthropology, perceptions of him/herself and others, and an understanding of what it means to be a human being and what is worth seeking throughout life. Major arguments arise as to what is a natural human and what is held as unnatural or essentially alien to human nature. Sometimes these arguments reach the academic level but often they occur in simple everyday life, even though they do not become anthropological discussions, they arise as sharp differences and conflicts that influence many peoples’ decisions in different life spheres and form essential life aims for both individual and social groups. Europe today is trying to go along a radical secular path, aiming to distance itself from Christianity by ignoring individual people and society’s responsibility to God. It seems that the opinion that is becoming dominant is that ethical relativism is in no way connected with the origins and increasing number of destructive tendencies that caused such tragic results as in Europe in the past century. Is false anthropology at the same time destructive anthropology, because according to Romano Guardini, “who knows nothing about God, knows nothing about human beings”? This not knowing of God and human beings is not only a speculative problem, but creates a vision of mankind, which does not have a strong ethical foundation and a clear value system and does not have resistance in facing moral challenges. How do we imagine and define relationships between a human being and God? How do we understand a life of prayer?[...]
