“We are ‘aliens and strangers in this world’ (1 Peter 2:11) in which prayer is no longer normal, and idolatry, the worship of all things not God, is.  But above all, the new norm in this post-Edenic world, is the worship of self.  ‘You shall be as God,’ says the serpent in Genesis 3:5.  And that has been the world’s principal belief system ever since.”
