Repent of Lent: How Spiritual Disciplines Can Be Bad for Your Soul

In ,  Repent of Lent: How Spiritual Disciplines Can Be Bad for Your Soul, Brian Lee examined whether it is permissible and wise to participate in Lent. He concludes that while we have the liberty to fast or to not fast, there is an inherent danger in creating little extra-biblical laws for ourselves . . .

It is, not surprisingly, a law of our own making, for the law of God — love God and neighbor with your whole heart, soul, mind and strength — is impossible to obey, even for a moment. If we fulfill our personal law, we have confirmed ourselves in the conceit that we aren’t so badly off after all.
