Wrapped so nicely
Packaged so neat
Is the subtle sin
Of self-deceit

Gives me license
To close my eyes
To self-affirm
Believe my own lies

I’m not so bad
I just fit in
Persuasive seduction
It does begin

To self-approve
Here’s a suggestion
Just leave God out
No rules, no questions

Psalm 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. 2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. 3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
