ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND CONTEMPORARY HUMAN


THE GENERAL DOCTOR AND THE SUPERTITIOUS MEDICINE.
By Arch. Sapikas E. Daniel, Theologist & General Practitioner

THE RELIGIOUS FEELING IS A BASIC NEED OF THE HUMAN SOLD.

FROM,THE PREHUMANITY TILL NOWADAY,THE RELIGION DOMINATES TO THE SCHYCOLOGICAL LIFE OF MAN,THAT EXPRESSES HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH THAT SENIOR BEING,THE TERNARY DIVINITY,THE HIGHEST POWER,IN WHICH HUMAN MIND GIVES BACK,ALL OF WHICH ARE SITUATED IN THE GLOBE OF THE UNKNOWN AND THE IMPOSSIBLE.

THE RELIGION DEMANDS MORAL CONSCIENCE AND PERFORMANCE OF DUTY,CONSTITUTES FOR THE MAN GREAT MOBILE FORCE,THAT INFLUENCES IN THE FORMATION OF A GOOD PERSONALITY,AS MUCH AS IN THE CREATION OF A LIFE,THAT AGREES WITH THE GOD’S ORDERS,THAT ARE FOUND IN THE PASSAGES OF THE HOLY BIBLE AND THE HOLY TRADITION OF THE HOLY FATHERS OF THE CHUTCH.

ALSO,BY THE RELIGION,WE HAVE INFLUENCE,ON THE CIVILIZATION OF EVERY PEOPLE GENERALLY,JUST AS IT HAPPENED WITH THE GREAT BYZANTINE.

THE CHRISTIAN TEACHING ALSO,INFLUENCES THE PERSONALITY AND THE CIVILIZATION OF EACH PERSON SEPARATELY,IN THE SOCIAL WHOLE THAT HE LIVES.IT CREATES THE THE MORAL CUSTOMS,WHICH ARE THE STRONG FOUNDATIONS,OF THE CONSIOYS BUILDING.

THE REDUCTION OF THE RELIGIOUS FEELING,IN A PEOPLE,CAUSES THE MORAL DEPRESSION AND DECLINE.

THE LOVE FOR GOOD AND NOT THE FEAR OF PUNICHMENT LEADS TO THE KEEPING OF GOD’S LAWS.THE HUMMAN BECOMES GODLY,KIND AND RIGHTEOUS.THE COUNTRY THAT IS RESIDED BY SUCH CITIZENS BECOMES HAPPY.

THE CHRISTIANITY,WITH THE INCOMPARABLE TEACHING OF JEASUS BECAME THE CORNICE OF THE RELIGIONS.IT IS THE MOST PERFECT EXPRESSION OF THE RELIGIOUS FEELING,BECAUSE ITS BASIS IS THE FAITH,THE HOPE AND LOVE.IT LEADS THE REAL CHRISTIAN TO THE MORAL COMPLETION AND TO THE PSYCHIK PEACE.

THE GENERAL DOCTOR AND THE SUPERTITIOUS MEDICINE.

THE GENERAL DOCTOR IS AUTHORIZED GRADUATE OF MEDICINE THAT GRANTS PERSONAL,OF THE FIRST DEGREE AND CONTINUAL CARE TO PEOPLE,FAMILIES AND IN A POPULATION’S WHOLE,IN SPITE OF THE AGE,SEX OR SICKNESS.

THAT IS EXPRESSED IN THE CURE OF HIS PATIENTS.

AS A DOCTOR HE MAKES THE PRIMITIVE DECISION FOR EVERY MATTER THAT EVOKES.

HE RESUMES,THE CONTINUAL GUIDANCE OF HIS PATIENTS WITH CHRONIC,RELAPSED OR TERMINATIVE SICKNESSES.

THE PROTRACTED CONTACT,THAT HE KEEPS,MEANS THAT HE WILL BE ABLE TO EXPLOIT,IN REPITITION,CHANSES IN ORDER TO TAKE INFORMATION WITH A PROPER RYTHM FOR EVERY PATIENT AND TO CREATE A CLIME OF CONFIDENCE,THAT HE WILL MAKE IT WORTH,IN THE PRACTICE OF HIS FUNCTION.

(Bibliography from LEEUWENHORST Working Party)

The very Reverent Daniel Sapikas (baptized Panagiotis) comes from, on his father’s, Efstathios, side, Mytilene, where his grandfather lived after the Asia Minor catastrophe. He comes from Asia Minor also on his mother’s, Nike Bobonis, side. That is why he takes great pride in his ancestry, saying, that «the roots of the Asia Minor civilization where I come from make me proud because it is the continuation of Hellenism throughout the centuries».
His father lived in Mytilene until 1947 and then moved to Athens where he worked in building constructions. He met his wife, with whom they had four children, among them Daniel. His mother and grandmother, deeply religious women, contributed to his becoming a priest, because they instilled in him the feeling of religion and his love for the suffering fellow man.

In 1972 he graduated, with honors, from Rizarios Ecclesiastic School of Athens. During his studies, he was taught Byzantine and European music by a great teacher and professor, Mr. Dim.
