Soul Snack 94/10 ... Adam's trend.
In 1648 the Peace of Westphalia established the sovereign rights of states. This was no fresh political thinking, it had been discussed since Roman times, although it was a new European initiative. Territorial integrity, with the sovereign being the supreme law-making authority, was its very backbone.
Nations still claim self-determination, individuals do like-wise. I guess Adam established this trend.
There is in fact, no such thing as sovereign choice. My self, my desires, my past and my ambitions all rule me. All are bent on self-promotion and self indulgence. I have no ability to rule me correctly. I am simply a puppet to their bidding.
No freedom is found in choosing for self.
Freedom is found when I choose against self, for it is only then that I have correctly chosen for me.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (John 8:32)
