Soren Kierkegaard: “love of the world [is] hatred of God”   2 comments

This is from the blog Dover Beach:

“…it is presumptuous ridicule of God if someone thinks that only the person who desires great wealth chooses mammon. Alas, the person who insists on having a penny without God, wants to have a penny all for himself. He thereby chooses mammon. A penny is enough, the choice is made, he has chosen mammon; that it is little makes not the slightest difference. The love of God is hatred of the world and love of the world hatred of God.”

Soren Kierkegaard, Provocations
