More on the non-value of grace

I think the 'message' of grace also includes: " . . . and accept that you will never be allowed to feel anything but guilt for anything that you do. Accept that you are guilty, and we will allow you to continue to exist . . . "

Grace is your acceptance of a trade: give up your right to determine your own value and you will be allowed to continue to exist as a non-value.

To exist as a non-value is to exist as a non-thing. Since Existence is Identity, to give up one's existence is to give up one's identity, placing one out of the reach of rationality, which is the capacity to identify reality.

Is this the connection between religion - specifically Christianity - and Kant?
