The Human Condition
God calls us to live in a real world as mature people. And so, growing in God’s grace is a gradual process of stepping into the light, of owning up to ourselves and becoming fully human. To insulate themselves against the pain of living, many people–including many Christians–develop “homemade” selves where the feel protected. But this behavior is radically challenged by Christ, who calls people to repent and reclaim their true selves, bestowed on them by their creator.
