Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? Familiar questions in our day and age. But has our search for answers led us too far in the wrong direction: away from our true position in Christ and toward a dangerous emphasis on self?
The last 15 years has seen the rise of a powerful and influential movement within the church. Easily identified by labels such as "self-image," "self-esteem," "self-worth," and "self-love," this movement has one common denominator—the emphasis on self. Regardless of religious persuasion, everyone seems to be fighting what they perceive to be a shared enemy: low self-esteem. Jay E.
