Much is being said today about freedom; freedom to marry whomever we want-regardless of gender, freedom to exercise our "reproductive rights," freedom to choose to end our own life, freedom to practice our own religion, and the list goes on. Each camp believes that achieving their "right" is what brings them freedom, but Jesus tells us otherwise; "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:32. True freedom comes from knowing the truth, not some watered-down half-truth devised by man to promote an agenda or to legitimize a sin. Truth comes from God's word. Knowing and obeying His commandments is the truth that will truly set men free. Many believed that their new found freedom, handed down by the Supreme Court's redefinition of the sacrament of marriage a few years ago, would guarantee them freedom. It's proven to be quite the opposite. They are now bound in a false belief that man has the power to override God's laws and precepts. Pray for those who have made such laws and for those who have been deceived by such arrogant acts. Instead of pointing the finger and condemning them try praying for them to know the truth and to truly be set free.
"For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:17
"Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed." John 8:36
