The Decline of the Individual
" 'The decline of the individual' is a common topic of discussion; that the individual has declined is no wonder. Having made himself the ultimate law, man has reduced all being to the limited measure of his fallen will, which, as Paul noted in Romans 1:27, burns out in perversion to the destruction of man and his culture. The individual shrinks when the individual is ultimate, but, measured against God's calling and the requirements of the image of God in man, he gains true stature in Christ."
