Transparency equals love of truth – the whole truth about self‐denial is that one can do nothing (without God) and that one can do everything (with God). The purpose of self‐denial is to reconcile people in the community; it is not an end in itself. The Christian notion of “hatred of the world” is contrasted with that of the world's approval, and explored in terms of persecution and worldly opposition.

Keywords:   community, hatred, love, persecution, self‐denial, transparency, truth
