Mentalidad actual y formación cristiana

  • Juan Fernando Sellés

Abstract

This paper takes into account the crisis that today’s culture is suffering in many aspects, and which is grounded on a mixture of naturalism and fideism. It describes the lack of philosophical formation which promotes weak thinking and is caused by the surrendering of truth, the oblivion of truth’s timelessness, and the replacing of truth by useful substitutes. The weakness of faith in contemporary society is also analyzed. Faith is considered as the elevation of personal knowledge, but personal being has been substituted by human works and the transcendental dimension of man has been forgotten. Finally, the solution to the crisis is presented as the growth a knowledge that is personal, both natural and supernatural.
