  • Abstract It is believed that the civil society leads to the prosperity of western countries. However, it’s worth being noticed that the essential factor should be the Christian faith. Several studies have concluded that there is a significant correlation between Christian faith and civil culture in western countries. That is why countries featured as the post-modern civil society are embedded in the culture circle of Christian faith and why modern Christian countries can set an example for post-modern civil society.
    In order to investigate the origin of post-modern society, the present study begins with religion which is featured as relatively unconscious. Qualitatively analysis and inference are adopted to infer the spirit of Christian and investigate how Christian life in church develops post-modern society culture. Moreover, comparative method is adopted to compare the differences between Catholic and Christian faith and to investigate the direct impact of Christianity on the transformation from traditional society to post-modern civil society of western countries at the turning point of Protestant Reformation. Additionally, the differences between materialism as well as utilitarianism and traditional ethic belief as well as Christian faith are also compared in order to point out the importance of Christian faith, which is more influential on the transformation of social value qualitatively and quantitatively than materialism and utilitarianism. On the other hand, analysis method is used to analyze the resource of Christian faith, the New Testament, and find out that it has much to do with the characteristics of post-modern society and the origin of social value. Due to the deep analysis and extensive inference, the present study discovers that the elements of Christian faith hidden in post-modern society. Thus, it has been concluded that Christian faith has an impact on traditional value and it also has lots to do with the formation of post-modern society. In addition, Christian faith has developed three major characteristics of post-modern society and it has formed the central belief of post-modern society. Finally, with the analysis of latest news, the proposed statements in the present study have been confirmed.
