Why Am I Afraid to Be Myself?

Sometimes I feel like a terrible phony.  I don’t feel as if I can be myself anywhere.  I seem to have at least five different personalities—most of which don’t feel like the real me.  I’m one person at home with my family, another at work, another when I go out on dates, another at church […]

Resenting the People – a Minister’s Trap… with Room for All

Hi Keith!  Here’s a question about something that’s been bothering me for quite a while.   I’ve been a minister for over ten years.  For most of that time, I have felt very fulfilled even though I’ve worked really hard in the many roles of being a pastor, a preacher, a counselor, a visitor to the […]

Transformation: A New World in the Midst of the Old One

Our teenaged son went to a summer camp a normal, interesting kid who was only interested in football (and I assume, sex).  But when he got home last week he was a religious freak, spouting Bible verses out of context with his eyes shining like his team had just won state.  I’m a church going […]

Temptations’ Noisy Voices

Keith, my question is how in the world did the saints get their inner house clean of all the different inner voices of temptation that argue against doing God’s will, so they could be at peace?  My problem is that my inner world has a bunch of different voices wanting me to sin and telling […]

About Pure Motives

Keith, I hesitate to write you about this problem because it seems so ridiculous.  But as a Christian, I am bothered continually about whether I am unselfish or not.  Several times a day I will ask myself, “Are my motives really pure or is there a little selfishness in this act?”  It’s getting so that […]

One Being: Body, Mind and Soul

Keith, why has there been so much emphasis in your work about living for Christ on things like relationships, feelings, the problems people have in trying to love God and other people, and in receiving love? In my day we dealt with the great theological ideas and doctrines of the faith.  Don’t you think the […]

Expressing Admiration for Someone Close

I am part of a large family.  One member recently died.  While he was alive we never told him what a good man he was.  Why is it we seem to have to wait until good ones are gone before we really can express what we admired and enjoyed about them?   That’s a really […]

What Kind of Honesty Does God Want?

Dear Keith, I am having real trouble.  Some time ago I heard you speak about honesty and realized that I have been phony all my life.  So I decided to change my ways and began to confess to everyone exactly what I feel regarding them and life.  My husband was horrified at some of my […]

How Much is Enough?

Dear Keith, how much ambition is normal?  I have been raised always to be ambitious, to use my talents and abilities to the max and “make something of myself.”  But recently someone told me I am focusing too much on getting ahead, and that I’m an overachiever—maybe to the point of being self-destructive.  If ambition […]

Moving Beyond Circumstances that Block Us

Over the years many serious, committed Christians have asked me questions about how to come to grips with such painful topics as sickness, handicaps, accidents leading to permanent injury or death, and other such matters.  Devastated parents, husbands, young adults, when faced with the loss of someone on whom they depend, and whom they love […]
