<051> Thesis: God's response to man's rebellion was to subject him to the "slave-turned-master". Introduction: In our study last week we saw that Paul declared man's turn from the glory of the incorruptible God in favor of the "glory" of corruptible creatures, while at the same time demanding that he be seen as "wise". We considered man's profession of wisdom to be an expression of his innate fears regarding where his life was headed. This evening we are going to look into God's response to him. Turn to Proverbs 30:21-23 for an introductory comment. There is something terrifying about being subjected to a former slave.
