The Idol of Self

"People will be lovers of SELF" 2 Timothy 3:2
The passions of discontent, pride, and envy--exert themselves in each of us. We are fallen into a state of gross idolatry--and SELF is the idol we worship! The principle of SELF is deep-rooted in every heart, and is the spring of every action--until grace infuses a new principle, and SELF, like Dagon, falls before the Lord Almighty! --John Newton

Dr. Grant,

I graded my daughter's quiz today, and it is my prayer that God make you to become the "Thomas Chalmer" of America. May God be with you and give you wisdom and direction and strength and courage.
Thank you for what your humanities courses have done for our family. You have educated and encouraged us to be thinkers who are not afraid to stand alone for what is right.

Carry on, Dr. Grant!

Deborah
