Abstract
Ovaj članak osvrće se na pojam nacije iz biblijske perspektive analizirajući one naglaske koje ističe Capetownski iskaz o predanju, posebice u poglavlju „Graditi Kristov mir u podijeljenom i slomljenom svijetu“. Poseban osvrt bit će dan na temu nacije i nacionalizma u hrvatskom kontekstu. U prvome dijelu daje se uvod u tri temeljne teorije nacionalizma, u drugome dijelu analizira se svetopisamsko poimanje naroda. Nakon toga pozornost se usmjerava na dokument Capetownski iskaz o predanju i na tematiku izgradnje mira i pravde među narodima, a u zadnjem dijelu nudi se tumačenje odnosa naroda i nacionalizama u hrvatskom kontekstu iz rimokatoličke i evanđeoske perspektive. Cilj i svrha članka je analizirati biblijske i teološke naglaske dokumenta po pitanju nacije, dovesti ih u interakciju s drugim dokumentima i teološkim glasovima, i razumjeti njihovu primjenu unutar hrvatskog konteksta sa svrhom doprinosa evanđeoskom pokretu u Hrvatskoj u njegovoj misiji naviještanja Evanđelja u hrvatskom kontekstu. U članku se zaključuje kako postoje biblijski temelji koji pozitivno vrednuju egzistenciju naroda. Njih treba promatrati pozitivno iz perspektive Božjega stvaralačkog čina, negativno kroz prihvaćanje stvarnosti pada koji je utjecao i na egzistenciju naroda, te pozitivno iz perspektive Božje eshatološke budućnosti gdje i narodi imaju svoje mjesto. Ključne riječi This article looks at the notion of the nation from a biblical perspective by analyzing those emphases highlighted by The Cape Town Commitment, especially in its chapter “Building Christ’s Peace in a Divided and Broken World.” Special attention will be given to the topic of nation in the Croatian context. The first chapter gives an introduction to the three fundamental theories of nationalism, the second analyzes the biblical understanding of nations. In the third chapter attention is drawn to The Cape Town Commitment and theme of peacebuilding and justice among nations. In the last chapter the author brings interpretations of the nation and nationalisms in the Croatian context from a Roman Catholic and Evangelical perspective. The purpose of the article is to analyze the biblical and theological emphases of the document concerning the nation, to interact with other documents and theological voices, and to understand their application within the Croatian context in order to contribute to the evangelical movement in Croatia in its mission of proclaiming the gospel in the Croatian context. The article concludes that there are biblical foundations that positively value the existence of nations. They should be viewed positively from the perspective of God’s work of creation, negatively through the acceptance of the reality of the fall that affected the existence of nations, and again positively from the perspective of God’s eschatological future, where nations have their place.
