“Thus from a Christian perspective, we perennially face the dual temptation either to demote ourselves below what we truly are (despair) or to promote ourselves above our true status (hubris). All in all, humans are unique among the living.” p. 86 (Groothuis’ Christian Apologetics)
“The Christian view of humanity exalts neither the immaterial at the expense of the material (as in idealism, pantheism, gnosticism) nor the material at the expense of the immaterial (as in physicalism).” p. 86-87
“…redemption must originate from beyond the royal ruins of the self…” p. 88
Are you a dualist?
