How to Escape the Toxic Cult of Self-Affirmation, with Allie Stuckey—The Alisa Childers Podcast #85
In this podcast, Allie Beth Stuckey joins us to analyze the popular ideas promoted by self-help gurus like Jen Hatmaker, Glennon Doyle, Rachel Hollis, and Brene Brown. We discuss questions like, am I enough? Do I have to love myself before I can love others? What is the cult of self-affirmation? What is "meology," and why is it such a popular way to interpret the Bible? Allie also tells us about her new book, You're Not Enough and That's Okay, and its message that runs contrary to some of these other popular teachers.

Thanks for the always thoughtful conversation. I'm interested in the other side of this coin, in that many churches argue against the utterly transformed life of those who believe as described in great detail in the NT (especially Paul's letters). They preach that we remain wretched and sinful after our cross experience, while God clearly sees us as redeemed and worthy saints in Jesus. Not sure how to square these ideas, but clearly we can lose the path in either direction. I'd love to hear some future discussion on the identity of the believer as found in scripture. Perhaps faith is needed to accept it? Or perhaps our standards are higher than God's are?
