 It suits the fallen nature of man. His pride is pampered by it, and his will delights in it. Departure from the will of God in a moral way prepared for the gradual rejection of all revelation; for men are ashamed to profess what they evidently hate, as well as what condemns them. God's word sanctifies. It judges the will of man, as well as all its outward workings and effects. It brings in God and His will, which grace makes the directory and food and joy of the new man Instead of this Satan presents fable on the one hand and commandments of man on the other, which shut out conscience as well as God Himself. (On Titus 1:15-16 by W. Kelly)
