Our Created Nature: Above All We Are Religious / by Shane Anderson

John Webster on human nature

Our Created Nature: embodied, rational, voluntary, emotional, social, communicative, and above all, religious.

There are four chief parts of Christian moral knowledge: 

knowledge of God in his inner blessedness and his outer works as creator, reconciler and perfecter; 

knowledge of our nature as created, fallen and regenerate; 

knowledge of the situation in which we find ourselves; 

and knowledge of the direction which our lives are to take. 

Coming to understand the fruit of the Spirit requires us to attend to each of these in turn.
