Thoughts on Freedom
"We find freedom when we find God; we lose it when we lose Him." — Paul E. Scherer "Where God has spoken absolutely there are absolutes and norms, but where He has not the Christian has the freedom and responsibility to make an existential judgment of the situation within the framework of God’s revelation and under the immediate leadership of the Holy Spirit…A Christian, while he is not open to a vacuum of complete relativism, has responsible freedom to follow the leading of the Holy spirit within the norms of revealed Christian morality." —Os Guinness "It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either." — Mark Twain "People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use." —Soren Kierkegaard "God grants liberty to those who live it, and are always ready to guard and defend it." —Daniel Webster To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." —John 8:31-32 "Now, the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, He gives freedom." —2 Corinthians 3:17 "I pledge allegiance to the Christian flag and to the Savior, for whose Kingdom it stands, one Savior, crucified, risen, and coming again, with life and liberty for all who believe." — Dan Quayle "For Freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery." — Galatians 5:1 "In almost everything that touches our everyday life on earth, God is pleased when we're pleased. He wills that we be as free as birds to soar and sing our maker's praise without anxiety." —A.W. Tozer
May God bless all who fight for our freedom today.
