Despite popular conceptions to the contrary, true authenticity - one’s relationship with oneself - is impossible apart from knowledge of God, and knowledge of God is impossible apart from His self-disclosed revelation. The pinnacle of revelation is redemption, and the pinnacle of redemption is Jesus Christ. True authenticity is therefore only possible through personal knowledge of God, or by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. While these truths are of great consequence for all people and all followers of Jesus, this paper will show they carry particular importance for pastors.
