II Peter 2:19 ” They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity – for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him.”

The selfish human nature is always striving for the liberty of self-determination.  “I want to do what I want, when I want to”, is our mindset.  But with that enticement comes deception and seduction as we wander farther and farther off the right path.  And sooner or later, we find ourselves in the middle of perversion, and wonder just how we got ourselves into such a mess.  In the search for freedom, we have instead become a piece of property…owned and controlled by depravity and lies.

Psalm 36: 1-2 ” An oracle is within my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes. For in his own eyes he flatters himself too much to detect or hate his sin.”

The wicked willfully rebel and oppose the Lord.  There is no reverence or even acknowledgment  of God in their life.  In their eyes, they are a self-made person that needs no other one or thing  to make it.  In their mind, whatever devious methods it takes to make it to the  top, or whoever they must crush in the process,  is fair game.  Winning is everything in their life…but in the end, sadly  they will  lose.
