These things should not compete
The Penn State scandal has underscored a fundamental issue that is present in far too many of us:They go on to cite examples and discuss this psychologically, but I have to ask how in the world we could have gotten into such a circumstance? There are two underlying facts to such a picture that I find really troubling.
Some of us are more concerned about the image we project than the kind of person we really are.
For one, it means that we now view life as we view media. That means we spend a bit too much time with media.
Secondly, it means that people feel they cannot really change. I cannot help but feel that such is in some part a result of a focus on "self-image." If we "feel good about ourselves" we do not need to change anything substantial - just the image we project.
This is really scary stuff to me and it needs a lot of prayer.
