We're really not OK

John Schroeder remembers the book I'm OK, You're OK. As John points out, there's more to Thomas A. Harris's book on transactional analysis than just the cover, but the title itself seems to have had its own impact on popular culture:
When I look around me today, at the state of the church, and the state of society as a whole, there is a lot of people thinking they are OK without letting God make them OK. The result is that everybody I am talking to is OK, but somehow the world is still just in awful, awful shape. How can that be? The practical ramification of that is that we spend a lot of time fixing the world, through politics and programs, ministires and messages, and almost no time trying to fix ourselves, that is to say, letting God fix us.
