Ever go to a carnival and look into one of those distorted mirrors, you know, the ones that make you look three feet tall and five feet wide? The image of yourself that you see back is distorted. It can produce a good laugh. But many of us struggle with a similar condition – we don’t see ourselves accurately. We are hindered from being the best version of ourselves, the version God intended. We are prevented by this insidious thing called iniquity.
Iniquity is mentioned 334 times in the Bible, yet so many remain oblivious to its significant and negative impact on everyday living. Iniquity is the ancient term for narcissism. It’s what turned a good angel, Lucifer, into the devil… “thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee” (Ezekiel 28:15). It’s one of the four reason Jesus went to the cross… “He was bruised for our iniquities” (Isaiah 53:5). It’s why Jesus was sent… “to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities” (Acts 3:26). As you journey through the pages of this book you will not only identify the problems iniquity imposes upon us, but you will also discover the solutions.

Pastor Wendell Shaw –
“Iniquity” was something I saw in the Bible, something I committed, but not something I fully understood until I read How You See Yourself. This amazing book reveals the very thing that caused Satan to sin…and few know what it is. Every minister and every believer should discover “Satan’s best kept secret.” I read, repented, and rejoiced not only once, but several times. A challenging, enlightening, and encountering book.

How You See Yourself is nothing short of life–changing! The eye-opening scriptural truths that Pastor David Johnston reveals concerning the subject of iniquity carries a depth of spiritual revelation not readily found in Christians today. This book serves as a biblical roadmap for anyone who wants to be set free from the bondage of self-rule and narcissism. And who wouldn’t want that?!
Dr. Jeana Tomlinson, New Covenant Ministries –
In the world of “the written page” where many pieces are a woeful regurgitation of the hard-earned insight of others, Pastor David Johnston stands as an authentic vessel. He is not an echo. He is a VOICE! How You See Yourself is a detailed, impactful Christian message, the result of over two decades of teaching, for the seeking soul.

This is the first in-depth study of iniquity I have ever read. It is profound and has enabled me to understand with clarity certain behaviors, their origins, and how to deal with them from a biblical perspective. In some cases I now understand my own responses and know how to correct them in my own life.
This is a great read. I hope others get as much out of it as I have already. Thanks, Pastor David, for your insights and for sharing them with us.

This is by far the best book on Christianity I have ever read. The word “iniquity” is ignored, glossed over, and treated like a dirty word in church. Learn the truth and receive the benefits promised by God when we give up our selfish ways!

The author does a masterful job teaching this unpleasant subject in a way that is enlightening, but without condemnation. A must read for any follower of Jesus Christ!
