Likely, our modern approach to publishing Christian materials violates these warnings. There are theological justifications, deriving from the image of God in every human being, or the command to love the neighbor, or the covenant between God and humanity (see Wolterstorff, Justice: Rights and Wrongs, chapter 16). In each area, there were (and are) many theologians who have argued the opposite side. They became blind guides that strained at gnats and swallowed camels (Matthew 23 :24).

Thus self-love is never justified, but self-realization is allowed as the unintended but inevitable consequence of unselfish action. The other angle of the question goes to the heart of biblical interpretation and separates into two camps — at times one could almost say armed camps — the literalists and the liberals.

London: The media has removed ethical boundaries. Christian ethics must be elaborated in such a way that its starting point is Jesus Christ, since he, as the Son of the Father, fulfilled the complete will of the Father (= everything that must be done) in this world.
