LIberty or slavery?

"There is a lie that Satan continues to propagate today with signal success in the hearts of countless people. It is the notion that by giving themselves back to the God who made them, and by submitting themselves to His sovereignty, they will be robbed of that liberty which makes life really worth living. Such people are not necessarily insincere in this conviction, but are the victims of their own ignorance, which makes them dupes of the devil, whose greatest delight is exploiting that ignorance."— The Indwelling Life of Christ: All of Him in All of Me, page 45

Kind of reminds me of a Randy Stonehill song from way back: "We are all like foolish puppets, who longing to be free now lie pitifully crippled after cutting their own strings..."
