#ec1dot44 - The Human Condition (NOT feat. Jon Bellion)
The wise British journalist Malcolm Muggeridge said that “The depravity of man is at once the most empirically verifiable reality but at the same time the most intellectually resisted fact."
Just look around, is he wrong?
We are not good people, but we have become really good at living in denial.
Is there any hope for us?
Maybe so, and maybe we can get a little closer to the answer in this week’s episode of Another Empty Conversation.
The time has arrived for Another Empty Conversation - a show that lets you eavesdrop on a conversation about faith and following Jesus. We talk about our faith so you can talk about yours.
Welcome to Empty Conversation episode 1.44
We are humbled that you have joined us and are excited to get started.
We often talk about the malfunctioning human condition here on Another Empty Conversation. Why? Because we are, at our core level malfunctioning humans in the midst of other malfunctioning humans.
Sure, we put on a good show to hide our eventual breakdown, but our honest accounts of our own lives would confess that there might just be something wrong with us.
The Bible calls the human condition “sin” and from the very beginning, sin has been our opponent.
Today we talk about ourselves as people and as people talk about ourselves. Let’s get to it.
Now its time to leave you a preview so you too can review what we do as we jump into Another Empty Conversation
When Socrates uttered the popular Greek phrase “Know Thyself” I wonder if he had ever realized that knowing yourself is only half the equation.
You can know yourself and nothing changes.
But if you know yourself in light of how God will see you through Christ - everything changes.
While we were yet sinners - trapped in the human condition - Christ died for us. There is nothing more beautiful than that.
