“The insecure person,

who is in bondage to the beauty trap,

will seek to overcome her problem through her works,

her appearance.

Let’s suppose that she did overcome–

which would be a mirage rather than the real thing–

then she could boast about her accomplishments and feel better about herself.

Though she would probably be “discreet” about how she overcame because she is a Christian,

she would know that she “solved” her problem through her strength (beauty and physicality) rather than God’s strength.

This is deception, legalism, and another Gospel.”

-Rick Thomas, Counseling Solutions
