(Supreme Court of Cassation)
The starting point of apostle Paul’s teaching in the Supreme Court is the assurance that the creator exists and has given us reason and logic, elements which the Greeks, then and today, understand very well, precisely because we are endowed with this charisma, to distinguish between rational and irrational, good and bad, to be able to distinguish between beneficial and harmful.
Of course, this ability has nothing to do with the end result of our lives, not because the talent, the gift that we have is harmful or defective, but because we do not want to use it or when we use it many times, the way we use it is irrelevant to reality but we want to cover up our other pursuits behind the creator’s faith and the supplies he has given us.
And this proves that while we have the name and the means to travel and manage our daily lives properly and with prospects of eternity, in the end, the supplies become obstacles, the challenges of upgrading and rebuilding become volcanoes and personal boilers of hell, the gifts become abhorrent, the knife, instead of a scalpel removing rotten parts of the body, becomes a deadly instrument to remove – real or metaphorically – the lives of others.
And of course, by fighting with each other, not only do we not secure the future; but on the contrary, we are mortgaging our individual lives and the lives of future generations, to a damaged perspective. Because, instead of cultivating and leaving supplies to the next generations, we not only waste carelessly our daily life, but also end up leaving burnt land behind us, land that is inhospitable, desert land and not fertile one that can produce life-long fruits.
