Cognitive Dissonance

Yesterday I preached on Cognitive Dissonance.  It is the justification of our actions and our attempt to resist our need for transformation.

It’s true…nobody’s perfect.  But through God’s work in you are you not becoming something better, something more, something that looks more in the likeness of Jesus?

Even Christians, therefore, are not so perfect as to be free either from ignorance or error: We may, Thirdly, add, nor from infirmities. — Only let us take care to understand this word aright: Only let us not give that soft title to known sins, as the manner of some is.
