The legacy of Christianity

The bible sees both body and soul as equally good and equally affected by sin.

It teaches that the great human struggle is not between mind and body but takes place within our hearts.

Augustine formulated

For the first time the supreme goal of life was not self-control and rationality but love. 

Love was required to redirect the human person away from self-centredness toward serving God and others.
