Christian ethics in theory and practice of physical culture

A definition of physical culture highlights knowledge OF and FOR physical exercise, which enables transformation of personality from what it is into what it can be. This true in itself - that physical culture employs knowledge to achieve it, hides an array of its possibilities. This knowledge can certainly be of various levels and courses and based on different systems of values. And when knowledge is based on different systems of values, then the transformation of personality - from the real into the possible level can develop in one or the other direction that is, in a positive or a negative direction. At a time when money is a measure of everything, one can readily choose the wrong side in which, according to neoliberalism - everything is allowed. There is no place for orthodox Christian ethics in such environment. This is why we wish to remind you that a lack of orthodox Christian ethics in the science and the profession emerging from the science and supported by global ideas which like a tsunami tear down foundations of civilizational values can lead to worrysome collapse of these basic values. Man would lose most from this collapse. Indeed, our profession is focused on man and his bodily movements - exercise. Therefore, theory and practice of physical culture must be supported by orthodox Christian ethics. In theory, it can be found in theo-anthropocentrism whereas it is an open book in the practice of physical education, sports and recreation; the situation is different. It is because of this diversity that we will look at different approaches both in theory and practice of physical culture.
