Title
Identity, Faith, and Maturity
Abstract

In an attempt to find correlations between psychology and theology and East and West, the article centered on three key concepts: identity, faith, and maturity. These concepts are related in their common emphasis on internal integration which is manifested in identity formation, the Holy Trinity, and the Confucian self-cultivation as well as Taoist sagehood. The quality of sameness, which characterizes the process of identity formation, is theologically significant in the understanding of eternity and the Eternal who is the source of maturity. Also, love and community tie the three concepts together in historical contexts.
