Season 12: Episode 3 | The Idol in the Box: The Religious False Self
Ruth names it – this is the most convicting part of the book for any of us who are Christians – especially for Christian leaders. Steve and Ruth have different reasons it is difficult to acknowledge their religious false self. If anyone thought we were done with the attributes of the false self in the last episode be warned – Mulholland brings up the list again. There is no doubt, our religious false is very dangerous and it is alive and well in all of us. Ruth ends with sharing Mulholland’s penetrating questions that conclude chapter 3.
