Our Images of God →Our Lifestyle

  1. Probably a second image of Jesus is much more connected to the historic person of Jesus and his life. Yes, I know that I am invited to a personal relationship with Jesus and I try to grow in that. I try to convert my life and be a good Christian. The keyword here is a life with a personal conversation.
  2. A third image can emerge when we include the aspects of the second image with the understanding that Jesus is a saviour of the whole world, who came to establish the Kingdom of God, which is not a reality in the future alone, but also in the present. Liberation theologians would say, this would lead us into a state of conflict (conflict shouldn’t be understood as only negative); here along with a personal conversion, we would interested in communitarian conversion. But this should lead to a structural conversion, throwing away the structures which are responsible for injustice and inequalities.
  1. Charity and Works of Charity are extremely important; but we shouldn’t stop there, but continue to ask prophetic questions to know why this act of charity is being required and can we avoid those situations.
  2. Probably having the third image of Jesus creates a group of thinking-Christians, people who ask questions and who take their faith seriously; who believe in Jesus and try to follow him as much as possible.
