Negative vs, positive reinforcement.
Reading a book on management today something concerning Christianity and all other religions became quite clear to me. What I am about to say is a general comment concerning the differing philosophies. I know specific instances can be argued. The difference is that all other religions work on negative reinforcement where Christianity works on positive reinforcement. That is: other religions base their actions on avoiding negative results but in Christianity actions are based on positive results. Christianity is based on love, caring for others, etc. based on following Christ and His love for all creation. With Christ actions bring a positive result, even wrong actions can bring positive results - repentance and forgiveness.
