Freedom is not merely the happy state of a blessed country. It is also can, should, and far more crucially, be the state of a soul. And if the souls of the people of a country are not free, can it really be said that such a country is free?
“Jesus said…“If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free…“ (John 8:31-32)
“For freedom Christ has set us free…Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another.” (Galatians 5:1, 13-15)
