"If we get confused by our identity, the circumstances of life may overwhelm us, and we compromise our response to Jesus. Instead of it being a true and powerful expression of who we are, we show a different face. If we do that enough times, that face becomes a Christian mask. We display a veneer of Christ, but it covers an inferior material. A religious mask is a specious outward appearance of good quality that overlays an unsurrendered life. We are a hypocrite. In less controlled situations we manifest our carnality, and we conceal our Christlikeness." - Manifesting Your Spirit by Graham Cooke, p. 172.
