From Whence Sin?

The Anchoress notes:
That was not the first time — nor the last — that I came to see how selfishness has a deep connection to all of our sins; it is a lesson I keep needing to relearn
The Anchoress is, of course, Catholic and the res of her post bears the marks of her Catholicism, but how startling is her statement to all of faith.

It strikes right at the root of the "church as service dispensary" model followed by so many evangelical churches. Getting the service I want in an inherently selfish undertaking. When we build the church to feed that, are we really teaching the lessons the church should teach?
