Ego Boost or Ego Kill?

March 10, 2011

“The challenge before us as Christian witnesses is whether we will offer Jesus Christ as the key to fulfilling our narcissistic preoccupation or as the Redeemer who liberates us from its guilt and power. Does Christ come to boost our ego or to crucify our ego and raise us up as new creatures with our identity in him?”

— Michael Horton
Christless Christianity
(Grand Rapids, Mi.: Baker Books, 2008), 33
