Futile Ways of the World

Holy Ways of Christ

No universal truth; truth is inside and subjective; “I am my own truth;”

Christ is universal truth; truth is outside and objective; “I

must conform myself to truth”

No universal morality [right & wrong]

Christ is universal morality [right & wrong]

Indulge yourself; “you do you;”

Deny yourself & take up your cross

live out your inner authentic self

Be like Jesus

“I am what I feel”

“I am what gospel grace has made me in Christ”

I cannot be wrong

All of life is repentance

My problems are outside of me

My biggest problems are inside of me

Politics, possessions, “power,” people are my salvation & security

Christ alone is my salvation & security
