Cross-Post: Self Deception
I posted this article to my Fundamentalist blog because it's a bit, y'know, spiritual. But there are definitely a few lessons for everyone there, even if you'd rather not take the spiritual stuff on board.
Favourite quote in it is from Bill Hybels: "We judge ourselves by our intentions and others by their actions."
A bit like the killer quote from Batman Begins: "It's not who you are underneath, but what you do that defines you."
