Voddie Baucham Takes An Axe To The Root Of Our Autonomy

"The problem is, I start with me as the measure of all things. The problem is, I judge God based on how well He carries out MY agenda for the problems of the world. And I believe in the supremacy of ME in truth. As a result, I want a god who is omnipotent but not sovereign. If I have a god who is omnipotent but not sovereign, I can wield his power.

But if my God is both omnipotent and sovereign, I am at His mercy."
