Moral Leadership

News: Training Phase of the project My Hope – Denominational and regional coordinators in training continue to train pastors and Christian leaders in all the places around the world.

The “My Hope” project of Billy Graham is not over! Now it enters the second phase which is the transformation of the churches’ pastors in community moral leaders for the New World Order. The sun of Bahá’u’lláh (Revelation 12:1) dresses the churches of Christ preparing the evangelical community (pastors and members) for the new millennium era. That is how the UN intends to lead mankind to the eighth Millennium Goal of United Nations that says: “Everyone working for sustainable development”. And of course, led by the eighth king described in Revelation 17:8.

MORAL LEADERSHIP

Acting only in the present, without a vision of something better, is just a pastime. And dreaming about a better world, without trying to change our practice in the real world is just a dream. Philosophers and dreamers we had and have in a large quantity. What we need is a Moral Leadership.

At the heart of the global crisis that afflicts humanity today is a widespread lack of moral leadership in all segments of human society, as it is sadly indicated by increasing evidence of ethical negligence and corruption among authorities found the highest levels of society both in private and in public institutions around the world. If there was ever a moment in history where the world most needed moral leadership, then this is the moment, because this is the first time that the survival of the entire human race is at risk. It is therefore of great importance to identify and discuss some of the key skills that characterize the moral leadership that should be encouraged and developed at home and in school through a comprehensive and integrated program of moral education.

In our structure of moral education, the truth is the basis for defining what is moral responsibility. It is proposed that two fundamental moral truths that everyone should follow: the search and recognition of truth, and apply this truth in personal and social transformation, as well as all other aspects of daily life. When each individual is striving to fulfill those responsibilities, then the light of truth can lead to obtaining the dual purpose of human existence. In truth, “is meant not only what is discovered by scientific research (the number 6 of the valley of Bahá’u’lláh) but also the spiritual truth that is revealed by the major world religions, who gave our civilization based on their moral and spiritual. These two sources of truth are not contradictory but rather complementary. Both are necessary for the development of a civilization in constant progress.

FUNCTIONS OF LEADERSHIP

Sociological studies indicate that there are two basic functions of leadership inside of a group. One refers to the promotion of the unity of the group. The effective promotion of this unit requires the ability to facilitate consultative processes to enable collective decision-making (…) Both functions are essential to the welfare of any group, whether it a family, an organization or a local community, national or global.

The Leadership for the twenty-first century should be characterized by:

A strong, deep sense to understand the current problems and future;

An ability to communicate these concerns with clarity and meaning, thus creating a strong sense of commitment to others with their ideas;

A desire to develop all the personal growth (theology of prosperity), and permanent strengthening of the individual as central to the success of projects and communities;

A careful cultivation of their own intuition;

And finally, the leader of tomorrow must be committed to the celebration and joy, with people and human resources have a profound belief in the dignity, love and creative potential of each person, to meet the challenges of the next century with confidence and success.

The profile of the leader that the world needs today is that:

Whose purpose is the individual and social transformation;

Committed with all values and moral principles based on free investigation of truth;

Inspired by a sense of transcendence;

Guided in the exercise of its capacities for service to the common good.

The three fundamental characteristics of a moral leader are:

1 – Basic knowledge of the world where it live;

2 – A clear vision of the world that want to achieve;

3 – Commitment to staff to make this ideal world.
