One of my lenten reading selections is “I Told Me So: Self-deception and the Christian life.” Consider this from eighteenth-century philosopher and theologian, Bishop Joseph Butler:

“Those who have never had any suspicion of, who have never made allowances for this weakness in themselves, who have never (if I may be allowed such a manner of speaking) caught themselves in it, may almost take it for granted that they have been very much misled by it.”

Is there any self-deception in you?
