The Roots of Western Culture. Chapter 2: Sphere Sovereignty

The scriptural ground motive of the christian religion – creation, fall, and redemption through Christ Jesus-operates through God’s Spirit as a driving force in the religious root of temporal life. As soon as it grips a person completely, it brings about a radical conversion of his life’s stance and of his whole view of temporal life. The depth of this conversion can be denied only by those who fail to do justice to the integrality and radicality of the christian ground motive. Those who weaken the abso­lute antithesis in a fruitless effort to link this ground motive with the ground motives of apostate religions endorse such a denial.
