Keamanan (security) — dalam konteks politik negara dan hubungan internasional — adalah sebuah konsep yang menawarkan jaminan di mana tiap warga negara, masyarakat, dan negara dapat hidup dalam keadaan aman. Konsep ini cukup kontroversial karena setidaknya memuat dua hal: fleksibilitas definisi ancaman (notion of threat) dan subjektivitas dari referent object (komunitas masyarakat atau negara) . Keduanya saling berkait. Ancaman dapat didefinisikan oleh referent object yang biasanya diperankan negara atau rezim pemerintah. Begitu ditentukan definisinya, negara mulai menggambarkan jenis dan skala ancaman terhadap teritori, kedaulatan, ideologi.

Jesus is a teacher who sets an example of His teaching to the disciples. The story of the early disciples' vocation provides evidence that Jesus is expertise in personal development. This fact is a moral criticism issue that is not in line with religious values and a challenge to Christian religious education which means the Church work in the educational issue. Through a library research approach, this study aims to explore the pedagogical meaning and methods of Christian religious education in vocational stories (Matthew 4: 18-22, Markus. 1: 16-20, Luke 5: 1-14). The focus is on the pedagogical meaning, methodology and implementation of the teachings of Jesus in the vocational story. The result is an imaginative analogy, a term that affirms the educational meaning of Christian religious and educational methodology where the experience (in the light of) faith is accompanied by acts that are much more effective in Christian religious education. Keywords: Pedagogy; Educational Methods; Christian Religious Education; Disciples of Jesus.

Tulisan ini bertujuan menentukan dengan tepat sikap orang Kristen terhadap praktik belis (mahar) di Pulau Sumba. Analisis terhadap konsep belis dilakukan dengan memanfaatkan konsep biblikal, antropologis, dan sosiologis tentang mahar. Berdasarkan systematic reviews dan perbandingan asimetris terhadap konsep orang Sumba tentang belis dan konsep biblikal tentang mahar, ditemukan bahwa praktik belis tidak bertentangan dengan iman Kristen. Tetapi orang Kristen Sumba harus mempraktikkan budaya belis dengan sikap kritis. Tujuannya adalah transformasi budaya belis. Transformasi dicapai melalui beberapa sikap, antara lain: mempertahankan prinsip-prinsip belis yang sesuai dengan Alkitab, menolak prinsip-prinsip yang bertentangan dengan Alkitab, dan menghindari praktik belis yang terdistorsi oleh motivasi yang menyimpang dari Alkitab maupun prinsip belis yang benar.Kata-Kata Kunci: belis; mahar; Marapu; Sumba; transformasi budaya.

Today philanthropy is always understood as the charity acts towards the poor. Many social organizations are active in the philanthropy field. However, these philanthropic acts only represent charitable or charity acts. Therefore, this paper intends to explore the biblical meaning of philanthropyitself. It will construct a theology of philanthropy according to the interpretation of Acts 28:1-2, 7-10 and Titus 3:1-10. The main author’s argument in this paper is that philanthropic theology is an act of friendship between God and humans also human to human which is the church basis and character, in relationships with other religions. This research process will use library research and hermeneutical processes to explore the meaning of the philanthropy concept. In the end, I will propose the implication of philanthropy theology in daily life with other religions. Keywords: Philanthropy; Friendship; God; Human; Life With Other Religions.

The Covid-19 pandemic in the blink of an eye has radically changed the world as we know it. In a depressive atmosphere like this themes of doomsday or end of time naturally surfaces. This paper discusses the eschatological options of Christian beliefs and how they can contribute to the wider community. The eschatological discourse would be limited to three options with respect to the realization of God’s rule on earth, namely: premillennialism, postmillennialism and amillennialism in relation to the crisis of the times, the basic longings of humanity, and the reality of power. This paper tries to show how amillennialist eschatology can help Christians realize their social responsibility on the one hand, and on the other hand realize their limitations and mortality, while not losing hope in difficult conditions such as in pandemic times. This research employs hermeneutics and dogmatic studies to reach its aim. Keywords: Covid-19; doomsday; parousia; apocalypse; eschatology
