Christianity’s Secondary Fruit

H.R. Rookmaaker, Modern Art and the Death of a Culture, says of Christians and Christianity being salt in the world (pg. 22):

“It is really a secondary fruit of the gospel. Individuals becomes Christians by accepting Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord. The fact that He comes to indwell them by His Spirit means that they will be bearing the ‘fruit’ of the Spirit in their lives. This, working in and through the world, leads to the ‘secondary’ fruits in culture, the consensus of Christian, biblical attitudes–to work, to money, to nature, to the whole of reality–which deeply influence the whole nation.”
