Prevalent Convictions That Tell On Us

1. Denial is the unpardonable sin
2. Figure things out
3. Avoid mystery
4. Become personally healthy
5. Define your goal as spiritual maturity and disguise the ugliness of your selfish pursuit
6. We are the point and God is primarily there to remind us of our value
7. Don’t settle for postponed fulfillment. Claim it now.
8. Ignore the darkness of the mystery you’ve been invited into where there is no plan of action that guarantees darkness will be turned to light
9. Value resolution of pain over learning to love

Very insightful. This list could probably also be called, "Identifying Our Idols". It is interesting how much passion we bring to some of these convictions.
