Christian Virtue In An Age of Authenticity: by Kevin DeYoung:
“In a day where people disdain hypocrisy more than any other vice and prize transparency more than any other virtue, you can be as obnoxious as you want to be, fail spectacularly, and sin repeatedly, as long as you never pretend to be any better than you really are. It makes no difference what errors you say, think, or do, if only you are true to yourself. This is life in the Age of Authenticity.
Which is not all bad. Jesus spared no verbal expense in rebuking the hypocrites of his day (Matt. 23). Itâ€™s good to tell the truth. Itâ€™s good to be consistent. Itâ€™s even good, as a general rule, to learn to be comfortable in your own skin, to refrain from trying to be someone or something youâ€™re not. Authenticity appeals to so many of us because it seems a welcome antidote to calculating, self-righteous priggishness.
But living in the Age of Authenticity comes with many dangersâ€“common vices made more deadly because they are willfully mistaken for virtues.”
