What Does it Reveal?

  1. Our Passion for Substitutes
    • Deuteronomy 17:14-20
    • We have a tendency to access our problems mechanically and not spiritually
    • Instead of looking to God for help, His way, we tend to prescribe what we want the Lord’s help to look like
    • Sometimes God will grant our requests to our own peril
  2. Our Aversion to Holiness
    • Deuteronomy 4:32-40
  3. Our Immunity to Wisdom
