The ideas about the basis of economic exchange and material values are given in The Old Testament and The New Testament, both of which dilimit material values from spiritual values. Spiritual values cannot be the subject of economic exchange, which is based on labor apportion - forcing humans serve each other after commiting sins. Spiritual development means more than being modest, extricate from sins and confessing. It contains forming kindness, improving mind, gaining knowledge, having aesthetic feelings and perfecting morale. The mind and feelings aiming to comprehend the world created be the God brighten humans’ souls and help be kind to others. This is the base of how Christian love - the fundamental principle of Christianity - is formed.
