“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?”
–Apostle Paul (Romans 6:16)
“… by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved.”
–Apostle Peter (2 Peter 2:19b)
“Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.”
“I believe that with the loss of God, man has lost a kind of absolute and universal system of coordinates, to which he could always relate everything, chiefly himself. His world and his personality gradually began to break up into separate, incoherent fragments corresponding to different, relative, coordinates.” –Vaclav Havel (quoted by Philip Yancey, Rumours of Another World, p.25).
