You should read the whole thing, but this is the amazing takeaway line: ”Any envy or jealousy of other people arouses some guilty conscience in us. By delivering us from false (and genuine) guilt, by declaring that we stand in the favorable judgment of God in Christ, the gospel frees us to create without fear. It releases cultural energy because it relieves guilt; it has cultural power because it liberates us from fearing the envy of others.
All work is full time Christian ministry:
In nothing has the church so lost her hold on reality as in her failure to understand and respect vocation.
She has allowed work and religion to become separate departments, and is astonished to find that, as a result, the secular world of work is turned to purely selfish and destructive ends, and that the greater part of the world’s intelligent workers have become irreligious, or at least, uninterested in religion.
