Excerpts from Man is a Good Creation

[Excerpt from Man is a Good Creation]
I was indoctrinated into the Christian religion from a young age. While I was still naïve and young enough to have recently believed in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, adults were actively and systematically trying to save my soul from an eternal and horrible torment that I was sincerely assured that I deserved.

[Excerpt from Man is a Good Creation]
A man who gives himself the benefit of the doubt is equipped, by practice, to extend this to others.

[Excerpt from Man is a Good Creation]
Healthy humility is not so hard to experience. Look into the mirror a few minutes longer than normal. Hold your own gaze. You will either have to look long enough to bring your "bad" side into focus, or long enough to bring your "good" side into focus.

Healthy humility consists of liking who you are, good and bad, and experiencing hope and anticipation in whom you are becoming. Humility is an honest self understanding.
