Tim Keller, Mental Health

“Some say that calling yourself a ‘sinner’ is emotionally unhealthy. Oh, no. It is emotionally unhealthy not to call yourself a sinner…To be able to say ‘I am capable of terrible things, but I am unconditionally loved,’ is the epitome of mental health. It is the gospel that gives us that. The gospel gives us the freedom to admit who we are when the information comes, to see where we need to change, to know ourselves.”
