That’s Love of Self

March 17, 2011

If you’re a Christian mainly because you want to be changed, that’s a problem. If you’ve given your life to God mostly because you are tired of yourself and want to be a different person–well, that may suggest you’re merely using God to fix you. That’s not faith. That’s not love of God. That’s love of self.

– Mark Galli, “Point of Crisis, Point of Grace,” Christianity Today, January 21, 2010.
