Give Up Being 'Christian' for Lent

"The question of 'what is specifically Christian', to which an appeal is so often made, is posed in Pharisaic terms, and would not in fact have been acceptable to Jesus. It is much more the question of a man's own personal identity and integrity, for every self-emptying in historical action is a venture, and a way into non-identity. A man abandons himself as he was and as he knew himself to be, and, by emptying himself, finds a new self."

- Jurgen Moltmann, The Crucified God, 15.
