The main question of this paper is to what extent do religious attitudes regarding God and Jesus influence societal values like economism, familialism, social criticism, hedonism and autonomy, and how is this influence to be evaluated? Religious attitudes and societal values are determined by a process of pluralism. In order to cover this plurality the distinction is made between traditional and posttraditional attitudes and values. First the attitudes regarding God and Jesus are investigated, then the societal values mentioned, and last the causal relationship between these attitudes and values. The conclusion is that only posttraditional attitudes influence post-traditional values. The liberation images of Jezus influence social criticism, whereas pantheistic images of God influence social criticism, hedonism and autonomy. The causal relationship between pantheism and social criticism, hedonism and societal autonomy is further evaluated.
