Revelation as a Criterion for Defining Relations Between Religions
Languages of publication
The subject of the foregoing article is a problem of an adequate criterion for the research religions in their multiplicity and diversity. The analysis of the standpoint of the relative pluralism indicates insufficiency and even faultiness of this kind of attitude towards religions and mutual relations between them. Theology of religion that is based on the premises of trinity and ecclesiology and that accept the revelation as the explanation the origin of religion, recognizes this criterion in the revelation. Religion is comprehended as vital relation to God which is the consequence of recognizing and accepting the revelation which is included in creation and takes part in history. Revelation as a criterion and grounds for defining of relations between religions makes the research into genuinity of religions possible and enables, their adequate comparison and explanation of their savoir possibility. This criterion respects the methodological postulate of theological character and universality which is the result of the concept of religion and its origins in generality. The recognition of multiplicity of circumstance which accompany the forming of a concrete religion seems to sufficiently explain the different degrees of existence of revelation in religions and its mix with natural elements, complexity and development of doctrine and similarity and differences between them.
