Approach: Studying several passages to understand what Jesus meant about being a slave to sin.

Hermeneutic objective: Observing key words that help us understand human nature and how deceit works.

Theological objective: Culture influences our worldview, the nature of man, and desires one has in life.

Without recognizing the presence of God or knowledge of His word, one is not aware or knows the absolute truth about life.

Therein lies the deceit and captivity in sin.
