Patriarch John X's Speech At the Balamand Alumni Ceremony, Theater Dubai Hotel
The “love of wisdom” or philosophy is the underpinning and the mother of all sciences. The “head of wisdom” is the fear of God, as stated in the Bible. The love of God, Whom we fear with reverence and fascination before His greatness, is in the heart of each one of us. Today’s human civilization needs to humble itself before the creativity of the Creator, to take His presence as a support, and to form a basis from fear of Almighty God. Hence, the civilization will be cleansed by His spirit, and will become a righteous and blessed civilization.
