The longer I live, the more I appreciate living in the “land of the free.” For I can say just about anything I want to say without the fear of reprisal. I don’t. I hold my tongue because wisdom typically trumps freedom. I can go wherever I want to go, so long as I have the funds and a current passport to get me there. I can do whatever I want to do, so long as it’s within the bounds of the law – or plow forward and pay the legal consequences.
Freedom – the ability to say, go and do whatever we yearn to say, go, or do. If we want to curse out a neighbor for being less than neighborly, we have the freedom. If we want to attend some far right-wing or far left-wing political rally, we have the freedom. If we want to get high on crack or drunk on Jesus, we have the freedom. But all this so-called freedom we have living in our good old US of A certainly begs this Christian question: “Is this what Jesus had in mind when He declared, ‘If the Son sets you free, you are truly free?’”
