“The wisdom of this world deceptively teaches
that believing in the inherent goodness
of one’s 'self' is foundational to a fulfilled life.
However, this erroneous viewpoint
overlooks the devastating results
of Adam and Eve’s failure to obey God.
Scripture teaches that a fulfilled life
is not dependent of having a 'good self-image'
or a 'higher self-esteem.'
Instead, fulfillment in living
depends on your relationship to God
and a biblical response to the problem of 'self.'”
