Problem

Divided loyalty

Other Names:
Overlapping loyalties
Competing allegiances
Serving two masters
Claim:
We cannot serve two masters. We either serve God "beyond the coincidence of contradictories" or we serve our own self. We cannot truly serve God until we have mastered our own self. We master our own self when we surrender to our own self, to our human condition and thereby take full and absolute responsibility for our human condition. When we take responsibility we are free then to serve God as we individually may come to know and appreciate ourselves in Him and He in us as we are one (John 17:21) as God is one.
