- Appeal to felt needs, not actual needs.
- Tell us we're victims, not sinners.
- Tell us we're wonderful just the way we are.
- Use only Bible verses that make us feel good about ourselves.
- Exclude verses that talk about holiness, dying to self, or obeying God's commands.
God is holy and He demands ... yes, demands ... holiness from His beloved children.
- Our "old man" = selfishness
- Our "new man" = holiness
- Our only hope = doing all things in Christ's strength (Philippians 4:13).
