Terrible, horrible, no-good, very-bad
experience, living in this world as an independent who was made for dependency. The Creator didn’t do a halfway job when He cursed the world. It really is an awful place for an independent to live. Except. For those moments of sanity, those tastes of Heaven, when created-dependents are returned by the convicting work of the Spirit, to the peaceful bliss of Jesus-dependency.
Independence is exalted outside the Church, and inside too. “What is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God.” Lk 16:13
