the tyranny of self‏

Psalm 14:1-3
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds,
there is none who does good.
2 The Lord looks down from heaven on the children of man,
to see if there are any who understand,
who seek after God.
3 They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt;
there is none who does good, not even one.
In other words...
I will not be ruled by anything outside of me.
I will be governed by my heart, my passions, my desires my thoughts, my rights, my loves, my hates.
I am my one and only sovereign.
I have no king, but me.
I will not be told what to do.
I will not listen.
You can't make me.
I'm free to be a slave only to my desires.
You are right.
You are and you will.
Romans 6:16
Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves,
you are slaves of the one whom you obey,
either of sin, which leads to death,
or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?
