Letter to the Editor: Bring Christianity back into our lives

Dear Sir,

Governments of our western civilization acknowledge Christianity as a state religion. Personally I'm quite content with their stand as a Christian. But when I walk the streets of our communities I wonder if we practice our faith at all.

What is Christianity and how do we expect the Kingdom of God to be realized on Earth?

If we would really follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, people in Europe and in other countries in the western world would already live in an ideal world of peace, love and happiness and Slovakia would not be today like Chicago in 1930şs when it comes to crime ("Organize crime terrorizes Slovak society," Vol.4, No. 4 February 26-March 11).

If we understood the bonds of blood which tie together our human race, and which lead to the fact that all people are brothers and sisters, we would probably treat others in a different way than we do. If we realized that the beggar in the street is our brother and father we would not walk by and ignore his misery. We would take him to our home and feed him, and care for him day and night. If we practiced love for our fellow man, like Jesus taught us to do, and extended it to strangers and beggars, we would already live in the Kingdom of God on Earth. When we look at the troubled world around us, isn't that really what we want?
