How You See Yourself
By: David Johnston
Ever go to a carnival and look into one of those distorted mirrors, you know, the ones that make you look three feet tall and five feet wide? The image of yourself that you see back is distorted. It can produce a good laugh. But many of us struggle with a similar condition – we don’t see ourselves accurately. We are hindered from being the best version of ourselves, the version God intended. We are prevented by this insidious thing called iniquity. Iniquity is mentioned 334 times in the Bible, yet so many remain oblivious to its significant and negative impact on everyday living. Iniquity is the ancient term for narcissism. It’s what turned a good angel, Lucifer, into the devil… “thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee” (Ezekiel 28:15). It’s one of the four reason Jesus went to the cross… “He was bruised for our iniquities” (Isaiah 53:5). It’s why Jesus was sent… “to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities” (Acts 3:26). As you journey through the pages of this book you will not only identify the problems iniquity imposes upon us, but you will also discover the solutions.
About the Author:
DAVID JOHNSTON has one driving passion: “Explaining truth in its simplest form to all
peoples.” David realizes that without the truth, no smart decisions can be made in any area of life.
While raised in a Christian home, David initially rejected most Christian teaching because he saw so
much inconsistency in the lives of those who professed it. Except for his authentic Christian parents,
what people said and how they lived didn’t line up… too much fake. At age 18, David had a personal
experience with God that forever changed his life.
