Summary/Abstract: The article describes the phenomenon of emphasizing (above all) moral issues and at the same time ignoring the kerygma in pastoral work. In the introduction the article analyzes various possible reasons for this attitude. The article also presents the most important implications of this phenomenon. In the author’s opinion two of them are most important: treating Christianity as the religion in which man redeems himself, which is always associated with pharisaic religiosity, and ceaseless attempts to create Catholic ethics for atheists – the reduction of Christian morality to tiny bits measured according to the abilities of man who is not supported by God’s grace. Ipso facto we deprive Christianity of its most valuable part.
