A cornerstone of Christian philosophy, this phrase is a manifestation or symptom of armored human thinking. All symptoms consist of two components, an impulse and a defense. In this case, the impulse consists of man’s attempt to relieve himself of his guilt (sinfullness) by placing the burden of responsibility on Christ the Savior. The defense consists in concealing through mystical distortion the true reason for Christ’s death. By removing the distortion, this phrase would become clear and read: “Christ died because of mans sinfullness.” In his book, “The Murder of Christ,” Wilhelm Reich showed that human beings murdered Christ because of their sinfullness, i.e. evil, resulting from the emotional plague within them.
