An upgrading (anavathmos) is called the staircase in ancient Greek (I go up instead of going down). Each stair brings you a step higher, which means, you see better and understand better. So upgrading means promoting to something better, bringing something better.
This process also applies to the issues of living faith. As for the issues of daily life, upgrading is a necessary element – in our work, in our relationships, etc. – so in matters of faith, upgrading, growth is a necessary element and without it our faith gradually diminishes, loses its executive power, remains as a name but without effect.
Because the challenges in our everyday lives increase as we age – the challenges in childhood and in mature age are different – and if our faith does not adapt to the new requirements every time, if it does not adjust or upgrade according to our needs are then it becomes outdated, ineffective, marginalized, abandoned, and at the end it becomes a burden that we want to get rid of and delete from our “identity” at all costs.
Because not only does it not help us, not only does it not express us but it brings us additional obligations to the already heavy burden of our everyday life.
