Mark Loughridge’s post for Gentle Reformation on The Myth of Self-Esteem wonderfully demonstrates the serious damage that teachings on self-esteem have inflicted on people. For decades, I’ve tried to warn people against this popular idea; it’s encouraging to see more Christians waking up to its dangers.
What does it mean that we’re made in the image of God? I don’t really know. But I appreciate Allen Nelson IV for writing about the Implications of the Imago Dei for Things Above Us.
Once again, Leslie A writes a convicting post in Growing 4 Life. Who Me? I’d Never Hold a Grudge… confronts the growing tendency — even among Christians — to be easily offended.
