TheoCenTriC Stumbling Toward Christ

Creed for the Fully Human


In his book About You, Dick Staub offers a “creed for the fully human.”

He writes, “I am a masterpiece, a genius, who, to be satisfied in this life and the next, simply must reach my fullest potential. The glory of God is a human fully alive, and to go to the grave with my song still in me would dishonor my creator and diminish me. I am of great worth. Because I bear a unique imprint of God’s image, I possess distinct spiritual, intellectual, creative and relational capacities ready to be developed and expressed. . . . I’ve come to my senses, I have returned to my creator.”

That, of course, is healthy. What isn’t healthy is the neurotic, religious focus on becoming valuable and “important to the kingdom.”
