Habitual Desire for Autonomy from God

The essence of human fallenness is a determined autonomy from God, and it appears in our lives in the form of countless self-salvation strategies.  Our natural mode of operation is law-driven, even after our conversion.  We default to that strategy time and time again rather than fall on our faces before God and plead for his mercy and grace.
