Celebrations of ourselves…

Our services are often celebrations of ourselves more than they are of God. Never before, not even in the Medieval Church, have Christians been so obsessed with themselves. Self-esteem, self-confidence, self-this, self-that have replaced talk of God’s attributes. Ironically, it has created the opposite of its intention. Without the knowledge of God in whose image we have been created and the grace which has made us the children of God, narcissism, or self-love evolves into depression.

Michael Horton, quoted in Fool’s Gold: Discerning Truth In An Age of Error, John MacArthur, General Editor, p. 169
