Estos dones son para ejercerlos en el servicio de Dios, para edificar la iglesia y para ministrar en el mundo. Dios llama a personas para equipar la iglesia para el ministerio. Mateo Mateo 5. El bautismo es para los que entienden su significado, pueden ser responsables ante Cristo y la iglesia, y que voluntariamente lo piden a base de su fe en Cristo.
Mateo 3. En el bautismo de creyentes se unen a la iglesia local, se comprometen a edificar el cuerpo de Cristo y dar testimonio de la buena nueva de la esperanza cristiana. Ellos buscan evitar demandas para resolver agravios personales especialmente con otros creyentes. Creemos que el matrimonio y la familia fueron instituidos por Dios. La iglesia bendice a ambos, tanto al soltero como al casado y anima a las familias a que crezcan en amor.
La comunidad de fe bendice y nutre las relaciones matrimoniales y se esfuerza para reconciliar a matrimonios en problemas. Los solteros son honrados de igual manera que los casados, algunas veces se les da preferencia. La iglesia debe bendecir, respetar e incluir en todo a los solteros. Dios llama a solteros y casados a vivir en pureza sexual.
Los hijos son un regalo de Dios. Los hijos deben honrar y obedecer a sus padres. Dios ha dado autoridad a los gobiernos para mantener la ley y el orden y castigar a los que practican el mal. Los creyentes no participan en sociedades secretas donde se demanda juramento de credos o de alguna manera entra en conflicto con la lealtad a Cristo y la iglesia. Los creyentes son llamados a siempre vivir como fieles en el mundo, rechazando las presiones que los amenacen a transigir su integridad cristiana.
La iglesia es la confraternidad de un pueblo redimido viviendo en amor. Como hacedores de paz ayudamos en el sufrimiento, disminuyendo conflicto, promoviendo la justicia y obrar para terminar la violencia y guerra para que otros vean un ejemplo del amor de Cristo. Como en algunas iglesias de paz muchos de nosotros elegimos de no participar en el militar sino que buscamos otras formas de servicio. Creemos que toda vida humana pertenece a dios.
Cada persona ha sido creada en la imagen de dios y debe ser celebrada y desarrollada. Los no nacidos, los discapacitados, los pobres, personas de mayor edad y gente terminal son especialmente vulnerables a tales injusticias.
Cristo llama al pueblo de todas las naciones para cuidar a los indefensos. Dios valora la vida humana altamente. Las decisiones finales con respecto a la vida y la muerte pertenecen a dios. Dios ha confiado el cuidado de la tierra a toda la humanidad, quienes son responsables por el manejo de sus recursos. Los cristianos no reclaman sus posesiones como propias, pero administran todos sus recursos, incluyendo el tiempo, el dinero, las habilidades e influencias en maneras generosas que glorifique a Dios. No desprecian a los pobres sino practican la ayuda mutua dentro de la iglesia y comparten lo que tienen con otros en necesidad.
EL pueblo de Dios busca adoptar un estilo de vida de sencillez y contentamiento. The territory of the brown Atlantis must be measured, therefore, not in acres but in racial differences, dreams and obsessions.

But race also makes the Atlantis a ductile territory in terms of space and time. The certainty is that this racial difference exists, as do all its historic and moral connotations. Yet from to , for example—and, I would argue, even until today— Mexican and U. Racial certainty makes it possible to make of the city the most important venue that the brown Atlantis has ever had.

They found corridos in Milpa Alta, but they never reproduced the sounds or blasphemies on the streets of the Bolsa and Lagunilla Colonies. Or it was D. Lawrence, going from Taos to Mexico City, then hating it and taking refuge in Chapala. Or it was Elsie C. Parsons finding the brown Atlantis in Taos, but upon seeing that the Indians from those parts were already too Westernized, she continued her search southwards until reaching Mitla. Or it was John Collier who, after having found the Red Atlantis in Taos in the s, encountered the brown Atlantis in Mexico City in the s with the help of Gamio.
Mexico, therefore, is not a place, it is the brown Atlantis: a mental exercise that the certainty of race allows and demands. Revolution was the ingredient mixed with race in , an era of revolutions. The amalgam was extremely powerful and effective.

Modernist dreams of disenchantment and aesthetic avant-gardes were joined with socialist, anarchist, anarchosyndicalist, and populist critiques and utopias. Who resides in the brown Atlantis? Actually, in daily life no one does, either in or in In order to prove how this Atlantis survives among us, I tend to require a mental exercise of my students in the United States.
Let us imagine, I tell them, we are on a street of Mexico City, Monterrey or Zacatecas today, and let us consider the buildings, the people, the street, the cars, the labors being undertaken, the tones of their voices, their sarcasm and malice.

Let us try to leave our minds blank and not assign an ethnic or racial value to what we see. Let us forget fiesta, siesta, sombrero and Frida Kahlo. And then, I ask, what would become of Mexico? A silence follows. Paz was the flower that the maguey of Mexican intelligence took so long to give, apparently just before dying… the maguey, I mean to say, which has a tendency to die once it has blossomed.

But I believe that what Paz threw into the international market was, and is, a very private reading of the collection of essays written in the decade of the s: The Labyrinth of Solitude. Mexico was and is defined, without Paz but also thanks to Paz, as atavistically tied to a colonial or indigenous tradition, not as Western, communitarian, Catholic, hybrid, mestizo.
Yet if Mexico were defined with concepts such as cosmopolitan, industrial, Orientalized, avant-garde, individualist, xenophobic, entrepreneurial, wealthy, Western… this would also be an empirical argument. In terms of cultural consumption, what is sold is consumed, what is sold is what is ordered, not necessarily a reality.
And of course, such notions were subject matter addressed by Paz. Octavio Paz was a creator of stereotypes. He was also a universal poet, a Mexican Orientalist enamored of India, and the resident of human solitude. The exoticist search for authenticity was and is so powerful in terms of the international demand for the idea of Mexico that Paz is known essentially as the theorist, not the essayist, of pachucos , Malinches and chingadas. I believe The Labyrinth should undergo another reading in English, one that begins from back to front, of the final essay, that of universal solitude, and from there to the specific essays filled with things that are anachronistic today.
A reading that would highlight two specific aspects: that a great poet found solitude to be a human category capable of surpassing the identitary requirements of modernity. And one of the best essayists of the 20th century making use of his trade—his home and his sword—, i. Regardless, the fact remains that Paz is above all read as the first Paz was read, inclusively when one attempts to praise him.
Parting from this point of entry, and thanks to the labor of stupendous translators like Kemp or Eliot Weinberger—especially where poetry is concerned—Paz managed to fully enter a planetary intellectual elite into which other Mexicans have gained access after him. Paz got there first because of the demand for that which is Mexican, and yet he remained and was consolidated not because he was a Mexican, but because he was Paz. Part of his poetry and his essays in The Bow and the Lyre have made him a frequent citation in English, together with a few others in the Spanish language—Cervantes, Ortega, Neruda, and Borges.
Pessoa, a poe —one of the best in any Western language during the twentieth century—who chose Portuguese as his poetic home or was it the other way around? He could have been a poet in English, but he opted for Portuguese. He knew that he had thus condemned himself to marginalization. Truth be told, the innumerable contacts of Paz gradually promoted him throughout the world without any need for what others began to use in the decade of the s: a literary agent.
Paz was also promoted, first as a State employee, and then as national heritage.

Afterwards he came into contact with a grand purveyor of cultural products, Televisa, and that brought him even greater visibility. Even in this, Paz was a pioneer. Carlos Fuentes, beyond a doubt, continues to encom- pass the closest thing to a global image of Mexico. They know the U. They both know the language and the country the United States very well. In all fairness, it must be said: I was very young when I heard Paz give a conference at a prestigious U.
His lack of knowledge of political and academic fashion in the United States was highly visible, his poor English made the didactic nature of his oral expression even more monotonous. I recall that towards the end he approached me, perhaps in a gesture of the solidarity of linguistic marginalization, and he asked me who I was, what I did, and about the Mexican students at that university. I was tongue-tied and went on about something or other.
A few months later, a memorandum reached my hands specifying how much had been paid to different speakers at that university.
