57-Is God mad at you? Part 4


I decided to put off the conclusion of this post one week so that I can provide for you the necessary framework to really gain the wider perspective I am providing in this series. We will never gain a solid theology without a solid anthropology. John Calvin said: “Without the knowledge of self, there is no knowledge of God.” For this reason, I am providing you the framework to discern our False self from our True self. Our ego, our pride, our false self promotion are not who we “truly” are, they are who we are in our falseness. In this post I unpack Merton’s words; “The false self is the self that God can know nothing about.” and why that is pivotal in grasping the other half of Jesus’ teaching about justice and distinctions.
