Vern Poythress Quotes on Man’s Rebellion Against God

Without God, it is difficult for human beings even to articulate where moral obligations come from….If there is no transcendent source for moral standards, what are moral ideas except subjective preferences thrown up by our glands? Instinctively we know better than this. But the attempt systematically to exclude God leads to suppressing these God-given instincts (Redeeming Sociology 39).

Even in their rebellion, people continue to depend on God being there. They show in action that they continue to believe in God….The rebel must depend on God and must be ‘sitting on his lap’ even to be able to engage in rebellion (Redeeming Sociology 89).
