Today's European culture is in crisis caused by many dif erent factors such as globalisation, virtualisation of reality, modernist crisis leading to increasing nihilism, technocracy, hedonism and utilitarian attitudes (consumo ergo sum). The result is the increasing crisis of values and traditional spiritual life. This is particularly visible in the context of the conflict between Christian view of life and the contemporary vision of the world. The aim of the article is analyze this conflict, its causes and impact on life, also in its religious and moral aspect. The 'war of views' is presented in three dimensions. The i rst is the opposition between today's Revelation culture (with its cosmology and the act of the creation) and the New Science that draws false theological conclusions from purely scientii c premises. These conclusions lead to an impersonal and pantheistic idea of God, which is discussed in the second part of the article. In the third part the author focuses on the relationship between this new outlook and today's lifestyle. The article shows dependence of an individual's way of thinking, looking at and experiencing reality on the views he accepts, sometimes unintentionally. He is shaped by today's culture which stands (without any foundation) in the opposition to what opens us to the height of our humanity and which is revealed by God who is Love.
