Protestan Ahlakiliği Sorunu ve Philip Melanchthon

Protestan teolojisi iyi davranışlar ve dinsel kurallar olmaksızın günahlardan sadece imanla aklanma doktrinini içermektedir. Bu doktrin katı bir kaderciliğe neden olmuş ve Protestanları dünyevi yaşamlarında dinsel sorumsuzluğa yöneltmiştir. Dinsel sorumsuzluk ise antinomianizm olarak bilinen ahlak kurallarına karşı olmak ya da ahlaki aldırmazlıkla takip edilmiştir. Martin Luther’in yakın arkadaşı ve ünlü reformist Philip Melanchthon, Protestan ahlakiliğini dinsel temelleri üzerinde oluşturmaya gayret etmiş, fakat başarılı olamamıştır. Dolayısıyla dünya, Protestanlığın dinsel sorumsuzluğunun ve katı kaderci anlayışının ahlaki tehdidi altındadır.

The Question of Protestant Morality and Philip Melancthon

Protestant theology contains the doctrine of justifing by faith without good works and religious law. This doctrine has been the main reason of firm predestination idea. It also led the Protestants to religious irresponsibility in their earthly life. It has also been followed by moral indifference or being against moral laws as known antinomianism. The famous Lutheran reformist and Martin Luther’s close friend Philip Melancthon has tried to found the Protestant morality on the base of religious feelings, but could not success it. Consequently, it must be stressed that the world is under the thread of the understanding of Protestant immoralism which is based upon religious irresponsibility and predestination.
