Every living person is a Slave.
They are either a Slave to Wickedness,
Or a Slave to Righteousness.
Listen to the Apostle Paul explain this reality:
Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone
To Obey him as Slaves,
YOU ARE SLAVES TO THE ONE WHOM YOU OBEY--
Whether you are Slaves to Sin, which leads to Death,
Or to Obedience, which leads to Righteousness?
But thanks be to God that,
THOUGH YOU USED TO BE SLAVES TO SIN,
YOU WHOLEHEARTEDLY OBEYED THE FORM OF TEACHING
TO WHICH YOU WERE ENTRUSTED.
YOU HAVE BEEN SET FREE FROM SIN
AND HAVE BECOME SLAVES TO RIGHTEOUSNESS.
(Romans 6:16 -18)
Every person is born a Slave to Wickedness;
Under Obedience to the “god” of this Age, Satan.
Unless they are Born Again, Born of the Spirit of God,
And walk in the Light of Christ Jesus,
They remain Slaves to Wickedness.
This explains what we see all around us.
