209-The Authenticity Test, Part 2

“How do we know if we are being real?” Last week we looked at the litmus test for authenticity in others. Today we explore the test for ourselves.

Think about this question. How can you determine if you are reflecting your true inner self or if you go through life wearing a persona, a fake ID, and hoping others don’t find you out?

In today’s podcast and post, we take a look at what many scholars have called the most horrifying verse in the bible. Join me now as we see beyond perfunctory religious “fronting” and discover the one thing that proves our authenticity.

In this post and podcast we will examine the idiom of “Weeping and Gnashing of Teeth” to learn something very surprising. What if the fires of Hell are not a future of torture, but an illustration of the path we each take when turning loose of our pride?
