They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity – for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him.

They promise them liberty, when they themselves are the slaves of depravity and defilement – for by whatever anyone is made inferior or worse or is overcome, to that [person or thing] he is enslaved.
