THE ETHICAL AND CULTURAL HERITAGE OF THE BIBLE: CHRISTIAN VIRTUES SA DESCRIBED IN THE BIBLE AND THEIR ETERNAL VALUE.

To become a real Christian you must obtain certain qualities of mind and heart, which are called Christian virtues. The main virtues are: love, hope, faith, humility, patience, meekness, self-control.

Love is surely the most important of all Christian qualities. Firstly a man must love God with all his heart, soul, mind and strength. Secondly, a man should love his neighbour as himself, for he who doesn’t love, doesn’t know God. Thirdly, a man should also love his enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you and pray for those who spitefully use you.

Faith is the source of wisdom, strength and all virtues. Unbelief is a perversion of human nature, the source of all evil things. A truly spiritual person lives by faith in the Son of God, who loves him and gave himself for him.

Hope is inseparable from faith. It’s inspired by things unseen and we hope for what we don’t see, we wait for it with perseverance. We are saved in hope. Despondency (loss of hope) is a deadly sin, because it actually means lack of faith in God.

Humility is the mother of all virtues. It is said in the Bible whoever exalts himself will be humbled and who humbles himself will be exalted. Humility isn’t weakness, but a godlike quality. God wants us to obey the authorities, the existing laws, our parents. It’s really hard to become humbled, because we’re always tempted in our pride. But one should always bear in mind. Christ’s commandment «Judge not and shall not be judged, condemn not and shall not be condemned, forgive and you’ll be forgiven».

Patience: « by your patience possess your souls»,- apostle Luke writes. A man should never complain, for with the temptation. God will give him strength to bear the trial.

Meekness is a spiritual quality which shouldn’t be mixed up with cowardice. A man should never try to take his revenge on those who offend him. «Bless those who persecute you, bless and do not curse. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good».

Self-control is a spiritual power over one’s flesh. One cannot rely on oneself in obtaining self-control, but one must ask God for it in one’s player. If one loses his self-control, he becomes an obedient slave of your passions. Blessed is the man who endure temptation.
