Protestantyzm i jego teologia wobec wyzwań ponowoczesności XXI wieku
Protestantism and Its Theology in the Face of Postmodern Challenges of the Twenty First Century
Languages of publication
The article presents the relationship between the classical Protestant Theology and the Postmodern World. The attempt is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in the year 2017. Protestant theology of the 16th century understood the human being as a Gods creature who is in permanent conflict with Satan. The anthropological formula of the Martin Luthers theology was framed in the Latin phrase simul iustus et peccator. In the Postmodern World such a description does not fit into the language and pattern of the majority of people who live in the digital reality. The article refers the ideas of Zygmunt Bauman (Liquidity) and Richard Rorty (Contingency) as protagonists of the postmodern philosophy as well as some of the pattern of the recent protestant conceptions. The conclusion of the article is that the Protestant theology should leave the older form of a big narration and tries to lead a real dialogue with postmodern human being.
