Two Perspectives on Morality

Morality is first the regulation of our inner world and only secondarily the regulation of our outer world. All outer wars are outworkings of inner wars. All outer works are outworkings of inner works, both good and evil.
Stumbling into the abyss:
Modern materialism reduces morality to rules morality to rules for regulating our outer world, visible society, because this outer world is the only one it believes in or cares about. This is like propping up a corpse, pushing it in the right direction and wondering why it doesn't work. It has no soul.
Christianity for Modern Pagans by Peter Kreeft, p. 57
