Part Two, Section One: Concerning the rightful claim of the good principle to dominion over the human beingA. The personified idea of the good principle; B. The objective reality of this idea; C. Difficulties that stand in the way of the reality of this idea, and their solution; Part Two, Section Two: Concerning the evil principles rightful claim to dominion over the human being, and the struggle of the two principles with one another; Kant's general remark. CHAPTER 5: Religion Part Three: The victory of the good principle over the evil principle, and the founding of a Realm of God on Earth [eines Reichs Gottes auf Erden]Part Three, Division One: Philosophical representation of the victory of the good principle in the founding of the Realm of God on Earth; I. Concerning the ethical state of nature; II. The human being ought to leave the ethical state of nature in order to become a member of an ethical community; III. The concept of an ethical community is the concept of a people of God under ethical laws. IV. The idea of a people of God cannot be realized (by human organization) except in the form of a churchV. The constitution of each and every church always proceeds from some historical (revealed) faith, which we can call ecclesiastical faith, and this is best founded on a holy scripture; VI. Ecclesiastical faith has the pure faith of religion for its supreme interpreter; VII. The gradual transition of ecclesiastical faith toward the exclusive dominion of pure religious faith is the coming of the realm of God.
