Christian Consiousness

   Christian consciousness begins in the painful realization that what we have assumed was the truth is in fact a lie….
   The lies are impeccably factual. They contain no errors. There are no distortions or falsified data.  But they are lies all the same, because they claim to tell us who we are and omit everything about our origin in God and our destiny in God. They talk about the world without telling us that God made it. They tell us about our bodies without telling us that their temples of the Holy Spirit. They instruct us in love without telling us about the God who loves us and gave Himself for us.
Eugene H. Peterson, from A Long Obedience in the Same Direction: Discipleship in an Instant Society
