  • My relationship with Jesus is not related or connected to the other areas of my life. Much of the time, He is relegated to the periphery of my life.\nWhile this compartment can grow larger, it still is not related to the many other areas of my life. This is my singular “spiritual” or “sacred” area; the rest of my life is “secular.”\n

  • LEFT: Disconnected, unrelated compartments of life.\nRIGHT: An integrated, holistic life, where my relationship with Jesus is the sole basis for my perspective and my practice in all other areas of life. Every facet of my life is centered around Christ as the unifying point of integration and coherence. When the heart is focused on Him, He becomes relevant to every part of life and empowers us to live before Him in all that we say and do. Here, there is no distinction between secular and sacred; all things are done for Him and through Him (Ro.11:36; Ph.4:13)\n\n\n

  • On an individual and corporate level, we begin to play by two sets of rules and try to have it both ways- the world’s and God’s. This becomes possible when we compartmentalize our faith and divorce it from other facets of life such as work, finances, friendships, marriage, and parenting.\nReason tends to override Revelation\n\nImage: The Roman god Janis, who can look forward and backwards at the same time.\n\n

  • Shows the dichotomy of the two realms- the higher, which is sacred, and the lower, which is secular.\nThe unbiblical philosophy of Dualism was made popular by Plato, and absorbed into the church through Saint Augustine. \nThe Spiritual has little to do with the Physical; the Eternal has little to do with the Temporal.\nInevitably, business and work end up in the lower realm. Other Lower Realms: Drama, Sports, Labor, Agriculture, Medicine, etc.\n\n\n

  • Greek view therefore compartmentalizes life into two major halves: Sacred and Secular, the Higher and Lower, the Superior and Inferior.\nThis is not Biblical; it is sub-biblical. \n\nSo you see the cleavage between religion and life.\n

  • With the compartmentalization of life, activities also become compartmentalized. Therefore, my spiritual life becomes disconnected from, say, my work life. \nWhereas my behavior should connect with my beliefs….(NEXT SLIDE)\n\n

  • With the compartmentalization of life, activities also become compartmentalized. Therefore, my spiritual life becomes disconnected from, say, my work life. \nWhereas my behavior should connect with my beliefs….(NEXT SLIDE)\n\n
  • My beliefs are disconnected from my behavior. I therefore act inconsistently with what I believe. \nEx. I can justify lying at work because my work life has nothing to do with my spiritual life.\nI can justify cheating on my taxes because “making it in the real world” has nothing to do with “heaven.”\n\n
  • Further, where my profession and my practice should also be connected, because I compartmentalize my life….(NEXT SLIDE)\n\n\n
  • Compartmentalization also leads to a disconnect or a disparity between my profession and my practice. \nWith this thinking, my words don’t have to align with my actions, because the two are not related. “What I believe is one thing, but what I do is totally another, and that’s OK.”\nThis leads to tremendous inconsistencies.\n\nThe Scriptures do not affirm this sacred/secular mentality. \nThe secular becomes spiritual when the focus of your heart is on the eternal. Likewise, the spiritual becomes secular when the focus of your heart is on the secular. Its not the fruit of my hands but the focus of my heart.\n\n\n
  • The spiritual is disconnected, is divorced from everyday life.\n\nThree defense mechanisms we use: Denial; Rationalization; and Projection (spot it- you got it!). These we use to deceive ourselves.\n\nIntegrity is a consistency between what I believe and what I do, what I profess and what I practice. Thus the godfather has high integrity- very consistent in his views; he practiced what he preached. Regarding hypocrisy: get your eyes of the performance of people and get your eyes on Christ. If you hate the hypocrites, then you agree with Jesus. So it’s not the issue between you and Him.\n\n
