This chapter discusses the importance of Christianity and Christian attitudes. The importance of Christianity can be seen through looking at dogmatic devotion. Christian attitudes can be compared to Pauline, using an Augustinian axis, that warns us against the worldly temptations posed by the flesh and its pleasures. John's gospel is a key site of the Christian emphasis on the flesh. The chapter also presents the idea that Word is also light, so, too, is it flesh.

Keywords: Christianity; Christian attitude; dogmatic devotion; Pauline; Augustinian axis; flesh; word; light
