William Kilpatrick quote:

“It is very nearly the First Commandment of the psychological society that we should accept ourselves as we are. We are urged to greater self-awareness on the happy assumption that we will like what we find. We are, as the saying goes, OK. We just have to learn to be ourselves…In contrast, Christianity starts off by saying that we’re not OK the way we are. There is something wrong with us – a twist in our natures. And the twist is not removed by liking yourself” (The Emperor's New Clothes, pp. 20-21).

sparkly unicorns, to glow-in-the-dark dolphins, these new fashion rubber bands
silly bandz have everyone talking. With the thousands of different varieties to choose from,

children and young adults have found it easy to grab onto this new fad. Plus, the price is right --the average price for a theme pack of 24 is around $4. Most of us

think, “Oh! What a steal; that’s such a great price.” When the reality of it is, the cost of 24 regular rubber bands is less than $1. Why pay more for shaped rubber

bands, when you can have regular ones for cheaper?

what do you think?

is there something wrong with our nature?

will following and believing in Christ be enough to make us okay again?
