Do You Have Spiritual Schizophrenia?

 If I watched a video of your everyday life for the past six weeks, would I conclude that your faith shapes everything you think, desire, say, and do? Or, as I watched that video, would I begin to see a separation between your spirituality and reality?

I want to write today about something that I call Spiritual Schizophrenia. I can summarize it with a question: does the public persona of your faith live in harmony with the private realities of your life? Here are a few examples:

• Are you a mother that joyfully sings "Amazing Grace" during a worship service, and then on the way home, yells at your kids for making noise and disrupting your peace and quiet?
• Are you a husband that prays and reads the Bible in the morning before work, but treats your wife with cold harshness before walking out the door?
