God’s book informs us that if you know the truth (of the Bible) it will set you free and if the Son makes you free you’re are free indeed. I know that many people who visit this site will not agree with what the Bible says… but the if you examine Romans 3:3, we find these words…
“For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
We as mere mortals are full of opinions based on our limited experiences that we relegate them to be truths based on circumstance and time. Jesus tells us in the following text that HE is the truth that makes men free.
John 8:31-32 (KJV)
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
There is a great blessing for us and that is that the truth can be known! Yes the truth that is contain in the gospel of Christ is able to be known and has the power to set us free!
Now some of the Jews who were listening responded in this way…
John 8:33-34 (KJV)
33 They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
Many of you who are reading this post may have never been in bondage or slavery to another country or person but we are not really free unless we are free from the domination of self-gratification that causes us self destruct and destroy others around us to satisfy the selfish cravings in our minds and bodies.
Basically we just live to serve ourselves at any cost. We can live in the freest country in the world and yet be in bondage to sin.
John 8:36 (KJV)
36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Until the Son( Lord Jesus Christ) makes us “free indeed” we will continue to dominated and enslaved by our very own “human natures”.
The gospel of Christ is indeed glorious!
Grace & Peace To You
To God be the glory!
