Shipwrecked and Sugar-Coated

At first glance, some may live life as though the depths of human brokenness belong only to say, the homeless or the prisoner, for example. In reality, our faith teaches us that all have sinned and all are therefore broken. Saint Teresa of Avila once said, “There is nothing here about the world’s system that I like.” The whole, entire place is broken. She longed for heaven.

Over the past nine months, bloggers and readers were asked if, while growing up, they were given the truth about our human condition. They were asked the question . . .

Did your parents, teachers and religious leaders prepare you for the “shipwrecked” human condition rampant in the world today? Or, do you think their message was sugar-coated. It left you to figure out the truth of our human brokenness on your own?

The majority, 58% felt as though they received the "sugar-coated" version. Quite possibly it contained a message that seemed to ignore the fact that all of us are extremely broken and in need of a Savior.

About 42% believe that the message they received while growing up was the direct, "shipwrecked" version. It’s here where one may have discovered that addictions, confusion, hatred, unforgiveness and the worst of all human tendencies is within all of us.
