    Abstract PDF
    Living in the post-corona age, We have become more important than ever to the duty of the community. Due to the collective infection caused by the coro- na19, our society had to try to prevent individual breakaway. Fortunately, our so- ciety is doing its best to respond to the Corona19 virus due to citizens’ cooperation and a sense of community. Despite the fact that most of the people are striving for quarantine, group infections are continuing one after another due to egoism that considers only their own interests. Therefore, in the post-corona era, we need an ethic of caring for others rather than a sense of duty or act according to the cause. Understanding the lives of others and caring for them has become more important than anything else in the Corona 19 age. Also, we need an attitude for the common good to overcome the fear of the virus. Among them, the most important thing is to avoid false egoism and practice the virtue for community order. In the post-corona era, rather than acting to avoid other people’s gaze or legal responsibility, it is necessary to voluntarily consider others for the com- mon good, take care of others, and take initiative. Accordingly, this article talks about criticism and reflection on false egoism behavior in the post-corona age, and the virtue ethics of the community and the ethics of others.
  • A Critical Study of the Red-phobia Phenomenon of far-right Protestantism as an Enemy of Civil Society

    Abstract PDF
    This researcher examines the political actions of civil society that can over- come the sentiments of red-phobia and red-hatred of far-right Protestants in the light of the concepts of Arendt’s “amor mundi” and Rousseau’s “civil religion”. Civil society can be said to be a “middle-level realm” that exists between the state and private realms, and basically respects the just and legitimate authority of the state and recognizes and respects the law. At the same time, civil society is the fi- nal bastion of organizing resistance against dictatorship of unjust and arbitrary state power, and it is also the subject that rejects the rule of unjust laws. Civil so- ciety is also a key support force of democracy that justifies state power based on the rule of law for just power. Civic consciousness, the virtue of civil society, is to prioritize the common good as an ethical factor that makes people like a citizen, and places the values of responsibility, diversity and tolerance at the public level, pursues common interests and, in some cases, can lead to disobedience and re- sistance against the abuse of public power. Through this article, this researcher urges that we Christians, as citizens of civil society, fundamentally question the cultural and religious ethos that hate humans, and to become awake citizens who can resist them with words and actions.
  • The Issues of Religious Phenomenology and the Topics of Christian Social Ethics in the COVID-19 Era

    Abstract PDF
    This paper explores the problem of religious phenomenological approaches to COVID-19 in the first half and Christian social ethics in the second half. The reli- gious phenomenological approach is based on a survey of Korean Protestants’ perceptions during the COVID-19 era. Looking at how Protestant faith patterns changed in the wake of COVID-19, I summarized the characteristics of religious phenomenology after COVID-19 as 1) the arrival of non-religious societies, 2) the destruction of religious aura, and 3) the reconstruction of worship. The suspen- sion and disruption of worship due to COVID-19 is read as an incident that Korean society has entered the threshold of non-religious society. Bonhoeffer’s “Before God, with God, without God” statement is expected to be an important clue to interpreting non-religious society after COVID-19. The increase in non-face-to-face online worship triggered by COVID-19 has collapsed the aura of existing worship, and existing one-way worship services are being asked to com- municate with each other and to change the form of worship. After the religious phenomenological analysis, I will propose three alternatives to the COVID-19 era: (1) Christian social ethics suitable for the secular age, (2) Christian social ethics overcoming anti-intellectualism, and (3) the ethics of hospitality toward others.
