I like World Magazine, and its blog. However, this kind of stuff makes me cringe.
Am I taking this post the wrong way?
When I think I've made a "breakthrough", aren't I actually in trouble?
Isn't the Christian life one of daily repentance from sin, and not one of trying harder and harder to make God, and myself, feel better about who I am? Isn't it the realization that I can't measure up to God, which drives me to my knees as a beggar?
Does God wish us to be weak or strong?
Am I a slave to Christ, or to the law? Aren't I adopted as a son, something I took no action in? Then how am I a slave?
The stuff of this post is just foreign to me.
