ABSTRACT

Our country accepted Confucianism and Christianity in China, Confucianism was divided into Toegye School, Yulgok School, and Nammyung School, depending on the region. According to the 2005 census conducted by Statistics Korea, the Christian gospel acceptance was 9 to 12% in the Yeongnam region and 20 to 26% in the Honam region. It can be said that the relationship with Confucianism in the Honam region is deeply related to the 'Li-Qi monism' centered on YulGok LEE I. In other words, in terms of understanding of 'Spirit' and 'Flesh' in the Bible, it can be said that the gospel acceptance rate and local inculturation according to the body theory of YulGok and the interpretation of ontological ‘Principle’ and ‘Qi’ have a great effect. In fact, in Neo-Confucianism, ‘TaeKuk' is a principle among all principles, or an inclusive form of principle. There is no such thing as creativity, judgment, or active love like the Christian god. This paper intends to present this problem in a discourse manner by limiting the acceptance of Christian ‘Spirit and Flesh’ based on the humanistic ‘LI’ and ‘QI’ of ZhuXi and the ‘LI’ and ‘QI’ of YulGok.
