Between Love and Judgement – The Sociological Side of Theology


  • Virgil GURALIVU PhD (c), University of Bucharest, Romania, The Roman-Catholic Faculty of Theology


The following article is a presentation of two principles on which society operates and how they balance. The roots of these principles are found in the Judeo-Christian theology and have established fundamental relations between God and man, springing from His character and attributes. Therefore, for this reason, the first approach will be a theological one, followed by a sociological one with implications in macro-society and micro-society. The founding concept provides a balance for these principles that have determined the functioning in normal parameters, or not, of every society, of any type and any time. KEYWORDS: love, justice, mercy, judgement, forgiveness, clemency, balance, imbalance
