Christian Moral Theology --is involved in living the Christian Life. Rejecting evil and doing good while following Christ and growing in virtue etc…The early Christians are a great example to us in living this in the current society.
The early Christians lived in a world…a culture where all sorts of evil things were going on…the gladiator games (and other “spectacles” as they called them which would be quite sinful)…idolatry etc. So in the baptismal rite there is the rejection of the the Devil and his “pompa”…his “pomps” …which include all these things…so the Christians would not go to these sorts of entertainments…such is still part of our life too in essence …(and we repeat every year our renewal of our baptismal promises…etc)
Now this does not mean one can not engage in any modern entertainments (or that one should enter into scruples on this)…but I think it does mean there are entertainments and other things that are sinful…etc which others go in for but we as Christians do not…even in the New Testament it says they are surprised that we do not go in for the things we used to…or that they do…
I think too that if one thinks about it …there are other things too…which simply are not fitting for Christians.…
As our society becomes more and more akin to theirs…let us look more and more to them and their joyful and firm Faith – especially during this year of Faith.
Here read this slowly to the end:
Also I suggest as a way to keep this in mind and heart…every day renewing our baptismal promises…even in a very simple way such as “Lord Jesus Christ I renew my Baptismal promises and will follow you” (which would include of course the rejection of the Devil, and his pomps, and sin…)
