All humans, by reason of the fall, are destined to attempt to control themselves, others, and their surroundings in an endless effort to "be like God". This impulse and need to control manifests in three primary ways: manipulation, intimidation, and domination. Like the game of Rock/Paper/Scissors, there are no real winners; only victims who feel crushed, cut, or covered by the process—or ominously empowered by it. What is the solution? To quit playing the game altogether! How? By recognizing and repenting of the game-playing. God does not “play the game”—indeed, control is not in Him at all. Through Him, humans can be transformed until the game of control gives way to a life of mutual submission—the dance of relationship rather than the dissonance of control.
