We were created to be human. In our humanity, we can recognize the character of God, understand our need, and be in a relationship with Him. Yet, we are tempted to deny who we were created to be. We either overestimate ourselves and believe we are God or we undervalue ourselves and assume we are just an animal. Modern society has created a third temptation, we can deny our true natures and assume we are machines. We aren't God, an animal, or a machine. We are humans. When we recognize our true nature, we connect better with others, this world, and ourselves.
In this episode, John Skelly and I discuss why we are tempted to deny our humanity, what the consequences of those denials are, and how we can better appreciate who God made us to be.
