What Is Freedom?

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
John 8:32

I love democracy because it promotes freedom especially freedom of worship. I have been to a communist country and it made me appreciate freedom.

However, the word “Freedom” means different things to different people. Someone once said, that some one’s freedom fighter is another man’s terrorist.

Jesus described freedom, as first knowing the truth, which is the Word of God. This means the Bible is the book which determines what a man can and cannot do.

Secondly, it describes the boundaries of every man’s freedom as either releasing or restraining you; “…And the truth shall set you free.” For example, you cannot have sex with someone just because you feel like it. The word determines who and when. You are free to do it only under marital conditions.

A car that has no brake and is free to travel at any speed will be destroyed; so is a life that has unlimited freedom.

Many marriages, life’s businesses, ministries, and potentials have been ruined because of unlimited freedom.

May we lead lives regulated by the word!
