Who's on the Throne? Downward Spiral or the Upward Call?
"Because man is born a rebel, he is unaware that he is one. His constant assertion of self, as far as he thinks of it at all, appears to him to be a perfectly normal thing. He is willing to share himself, sometimes even to sacrifice himself for a desired end, but never to dethrone himself. No matter how far down the scale of social acceptance he may slide, he is still in his own eyes a king on a throne, and no one, not even God, can take that throne from him." A.W. Tozer "The Knowledge of the Holy"
Romans 2:12-16 I Romans 1:18-32
