It is in all of us. The desire to have dominion over this earth.

Control. We love to be in control.

Back in Genesis 1:26-30, God said to Adam: “have dominion” in the earth. Read that passage.

Our desire for dominion originally was a good thing but now it is corrupted due to our sinful fall. Now, we desire to control things out of a sinful heart and it only leads to problems. This is an especially big problem in biblical counseling. You can imagine how the love of control impacts families since every member of the family has this desire and must learn to crucify it.
