This chapter examines the unilateral complementarity of Christ and the discourses that are maintained about him. It considers how “Christic nontheology” proposes to cut with the weapon of faith the theo-christic doublet that structures Christianity and engenders its ecclesio-centrism. It also looks at the correlation of Christ and God as the object of an imaginary and religious science that has appropriated it and institutionalized it. It argues that the Cross is a radical but not absolute desuturing of doublets; it is the form par excellence of the unilateral complementarity that must be brought into play on both of its two sides. Finally, it discusses the quantum orientation of the Christ-science, the being-for-man of the Christ-science, the generic fusion of Christ and theology “under” Christ, the contemporary of Christ through generic science, the quantum of faith and the occidental-orientation of the science-in-Christ, and the science of religions as the depotentialization or debasing of beliefs.

Keywords:   unilateral complementarity, Christ, theo-christic doublet, Christianity, God, Cross, Christ-science, theology, generic science, science-in-Christ
