The desire to create and rule one's own kingdom is an ancient struggle of the heart. All the way back to our friends, Adam & Eve in Genesis... The temptation to want to be in control... wise... all-knowing... god-like... This temptation hisses in the garden and eventually rings in the ear of man. The consequent fall of man due to this chase after man's own glory is an effective tactic of the enemy. We are all susceptible.
