Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

December 5, 2010 (truly free?)

truly free?

“This is a paradox, of course,
as Augustine, Luther, Edwards, Pascal
and others have pointed out.
When individuals rebel against God,
they don't achieve freedom.
They fall into bondage,
because rebellion is sin,
and sin is a tyrant.
On the other hand,
when men and women submit to God,
becoming his slaves,
they become truly free.
They achieve the ability
fully to become the special,
unique beings that
God created them to be.”
- James Montgomery Boice
