But, Socrates points out, to say that holiness is gratifying the gods is similar to saying that holiness is what is approved of by the gods, which lands us back in our previous conundrum.
Wanting enables us to determine the emotional drive which moves us to act. First, Euthyphro suggests that holiness is persecuting religious offenders.
Ritschl, too, treats Pietism as a retrograde movement of Christian life towards Catholicism. It allows us to live as Christ asks us to live even if it is contrary to the acceptable standards of the world, especially when those standards are clearly unchristian.
