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

Kierkegaard: “the greatest thing each person can do”   Leave a comment

This is from the blog Dover Beach:

“…the greatest thing each person can do is to give himself to God utterly and unconditionally – weaknesses, fears, and all. For God loves obedience more than good intentions or second-best offerings, which are all too often made under the guise of weakness.”

–Soren Kierkegaard, Provocations
