"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Socrates famously asserted that the unexamined life is not worth living. We make all sorts of deals with ourselves every day in order to stave off examination and remain happily self-deceived. Many of these "little deals" we make allow us the guilt free pleasure of sin or we simply deceive ourselves so that we don't have to face the painful reality of grief, loss, or abandonment. At face value we are great liars. Often times these lies comfort us or excuse us. However, Christ's offer of life to the full demands an examined existence fully exposed to ourselves, our God, and our world. Join us as we look at four aspects of self-deception and the Christian life that will help us to live more wholeheartedly.
