Useful Quotes

  • Who is sovereign over history, man or God? This was Satan's great temptation in the garden: "ye shall be as gods" (Genesis 3:5). Eve decided that she would test God's word by an experiment. She would violate God's law and see whether she would die that very day, as God had promised. She, the "neutral observer," would determine who was correct, God or Satan. The problem was, by testing God's word, she was violating God's word. She was setting herself up as the sovereign agent in a cosmic experiment. But God said that He was in charge. He would determine the course of events if she or her husband violated His word. It was clear: either He is sovereign, or He is a liar. Satan tempted men by implying that man is in charge rather than God. By believing that man is in charge of the great cosmic test of God's word, and then acting in terms of this belief, mankind fell into sin.
