In my youth the popular pseudo-intellectual question was, “Who am I, where did I come from, why am I here, and where am I going?” I don’t think my generation ever really answered the above, as most just went on from episode to episode and fad to fad.
A few of us found some answers and a smaller number learned to become who we were told to be. Still fewer of us learned the biblical truth, strangely enough championed by Joseph Campbell:
“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.”
If/when the bulk of humanity learns this secret most head doctors will be in the poor house. Many inner conflicts arise due to the internal longing to find out who we are, while at the same time peer or self induced guilt is flooding our reasoning/feeling processes. It’s enough to drive you mad.
One thing about Jesus that drives researchers to distraction is that he does not fit any known human mold, though He is the God/Man. The problem with group molds is that they are designed for one size fit to all. Life or humans do not work that way due to our uniqueness.
The anti-mold Paul wrote in Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Or, will of the group?
