Question: From "God created man in his own image" (Genesis:1:27), I like your application that the most perfect image is seen in a mirror and that man is like a mirror designed to reflect God. Since a mirror's only purpose is to "reflect a reality other than its own," you show the folly of a mirror trying to develop a "good self-image," exposing the "self-image" error that psychology has brought into the church. But then you say, "If there is something wrong with the image in the mirror it needs to get back into a right relationship with the One whose image it was designed to reflect." Shouldn't the mirror rather look to its owner to clean, polish it, and place it in the right position to reflect what it's supposed to?

Response: No illustration is perfect. This one simply shows that developing high self-esteem and a good self-image turns one away from God and to oneself--and how unbiblical and foolish such a concept is.
