Welcome to the ACTS Podcast!

All sin involves a splitting of personality – what James calls being “double-minded” (4:8).  If we become proud, we have an inflated sense of self that has lost touch with who we really are.  If you talk about friends disparagingly behind their backs, you’ve created two personalities - the loving friend and the gossiping friend.  You try to keep the personalities separate by telling those to whom you gossip, “Please keep this in confidence.”  Repentance brings the split personality together and thus restores integrity to the life. The real self is made public.  When the proud person is humbled, the elevated self is united with the true self.  (Paul Miller, 2009)
