The Global Digest (English) - - CHAPTER 4 -

This re­search pa­per spec­i­fies var­i­ous stan­dards and rules adopted by Chris­tians. And then, the pa­per car­ries out the de­tail anal­y­sis on Chris­tian free­dom through the Bi­ble texts fol­lows by the ex­pla­na­tion, par­tic­u­larly on the Ad­ven­tist church back­ground.

While the pa­per pro­poses the Chris­tian free­dom mean­while it ar­gues the need of un­der­stand­ing Chris­tian moral­ity, as well as, free­dom bounded by Chris­tian moral­ity.

The de­vel­op­ment of Chris­tian free­dom is par­al­lel to Chris­tian moral. This moral­ity also func­tion as a con­troller to Chris­tian’s ex­treme free­dom, such as loos­ing self-con­trol and in­dis­ci­pline. And it men­tioned such an ex­treme free­dom will be dan­ger­ous with­out mo­rals.

This pa­per also dis­cusses about Chris­tian­ity it­self, to see dif­fer­ences of their per­spec­tive on churches’ po­si­tions and check how it is fit to mod­ern days. The churches can con­tex­tu­al­ize to dif­fer­ent cul­tures so­ci­eties as mod­ern­iza­tion, such as a democ­racy sys­tem and hu­man rights stan­dard.

While the Chris­tians are look­ing for the fu­ture sal­va­tion, an eter­nal free­dom, also we need to con­sider present time prac­ti­cal things for day-to-day life. More or

the less the pa­per shows the world stan­dard like United Na­tions' hu­man rights norm

by an­a­lyz­ing the Chris­tian’s free­dom.

It also shows many other is­sues, such as so­cial-pol­i­tics, peace and se­cu­rity in the world. For ex­am­ple, the pa­per dis­cusses the free­dom in Asian con­text. Fi­nally, the pa­per ex­plains how the Chris­tian free­dom could be use­ful for

build­ing the world’s com­mon stan­dard and norm of hu­man be­ings. And tell the world what is real Chris­tian free­dom par­tic­u­larly such as an Ad­ven­tist church’s view. At the same time, this pa­per show as it was use­ful for Ad­ven­tist’s global min­istry.
