Can I Choose My Own Identity? | Andy Bannister

“What’s wrong with trying to choose my own identity?” We live in a culture that tells us that we can be whatever we want to be: choose the gender, sexuality, political tribe, or any other construct that works for you. In this highly topical SHORT ANSWERS episode, Andy Bannister explores how this idea is actually tearing us apart from one another—and how the pressure of building our identity is more than we were designed to bear. In contrast, we’ll see how at the heart of the message of Jesus lies the incredible offer of a new identity that is safe, secure, and life-giving.
