That's Kurt's free translation of what he said and is still true today. I say go study Mr. Augustine and the Bible. The cravings of the world are the same as before and the world has many categories of people (sportos, drama peeps, party animals, intellectual geeks etc.), but God only has three (the natural man, the carnal man, and the spiritual man) and what they each tend to go after is what they each have gone after in the past. But we'd all would do well to go after knowing the Lord before it all.Augustine: This world really goes after three things.. money, sex and power but Christ satisfies! A lot's changed since he was here. Not!— Kurt von Schleicher (@kurtwvs) September 14, 2015
When Augustine was here, he was influenced by Stoicism and Neo-Platonism, and he determined that the personal attributes needed for happiness were based in terms of character strengths.
