We live in a world that has a very low view of the human body. Our bodies are no longer important when our culture thinks about personhood. Instead, being a person is all about our feelings, emotions, and our cognitive abilities. These matters of the inner person – what the Christian might call ‘the soul’ – have become separated from the outer person. Not only are the inner and outer persons separated by our culture, but they are actually at odds with each other. The physical body is less than the inner person. What matters most is how you feel.
