|In the life of Christ, which reached to its’ apex in His Cross and Resurrection, revealed the multi-faceted peace, that He gives to the world. The God to whom we have based our confidence, is a “God of peace” (Phil. 4:9). This peace originates in the depths of human existence to become a beneficial force which calms the whole world. The peace which the New Testament preaches is multidimensional: personal, social, and at the same time holy, complete, and eschatological.|
The Christian concept of inner peace is something much deeper and broader than the calmness of the stoics or the Nirvana of the Buddhists and it is not related at all to apathy for what happens around us. The Gospel revealed that the opposite of peace is not war, but egoism, the personal, communal, national, and racial egotism. Here the origin of the threat to the peace is found and here is where we should turn our attention and our effort.
