How Satan Is Using the Lie that Personal 'Authenticity' Is the Pathway to Personal, Social Flourishing

How do we respond to a culture that condemns us as opponents of the authenticity it demands? One answer is to be just as authentic as believers as our opponents seek to be as secularists. The key to being authentically Christian, of course, is being authentically with Christ.
