Damn Shame: Finding Freedom from False Beliefs (Paperback)
Why do others shame and bully us? Why do we cast blame and shame on others? Where does shame come from?
Shame affects every area of our life and relationships. In order to cure shame, we have to find its root source, which may be subtly (yet destructively) hidden in commonly accepted teachings and religious beliefs that wreak havoc on our self-image. Shame speaks candidly about the lies we believe about ourselves -- about others -- and invites us to shift our understanding so we can begin to heal and live without the baggage of our past. Ask yourself: "What in my thinking about God's view of me, do I need to change so I don t live in shame? Does God really see me as someone who deserve damnation just for being born?"
If you sense that the God of the Bible is a God who is both just and loving -- who holds us to a holy standard and yet offers us the grace and mercy through His Son to reach that standard -- then condemn the shame you feel.
Find freedom from the lies you believe.
