Internal/external - Problem/solution

My notes from church today included this:

People today think that the problem is fundamentally external (my circumstances are cruddy, the world is full of evil) and the solution is internal (I just need to be a better person and find inner strength/inner peace); while Christianity believes that the problem is fundamentally internal (my deceitful, self-centered heart that dethrones God) and the solution is external (Christ - his finished work and person).
