Main Thought

The basic liberties and freedoms we Americans believe must be guaranteed can never be realized in any large part unless we add another freedom – soul freedom!

  1. The character of Christ’s freedom.
    • It is not freedom from…..
      • Suffering
      • Temptation
      • The obligation to respect and obey God’s law
    • Christ’s freedom must be something we can possess within even when we are under pressure from without.
  2. What is the positive content of the freedom which people are offered through Christ?
    • Deliverance from the bondage of the mind.
      • You shall know the truth about…..
        • Making your faith a reality
        • God and the largeness of His heart
        • Hatred and anger against your fellow man
    • Deliverance from the bondage of the will.
    • Deliverance from the bondage of the spirit
  3. The condition on which we can be set free.
    • Christ gives freedom by giving Himself.
