    The Bible tells us that, spiritually speaking, no one is free. In Romans 6, Paul explains that we are all slaves. We are either slaves to sin or slaves to righteousness. Those who are slaves to sin cannot free themselves from it, but once we are freed from the penalty and power of sin through the cross, we become a different kind of slave, and in that slavery we find complete peace and true freedom.

    1. speaking from the hip….how can you be free if you follow Christ? Basically John 3:16 removes the freedom that Christ represents, I would like to hear/read more dialog about the freedom of Christ. If your a Christian, depending on how you define freedom, you are not free!

  3. It’s a great question – what does freedom in Christ mean? Is it just freedom from, or is it freedom for – but freedom for what? Or is it both freedom from bondage to sin and freedom for a life of joy lived for others?

    1. I’m not really excited about “debating” this question, BUT to me; this is a very binary question… if you ARE a TRUE Christian. Are you free not to believe in Christ? Note the difference! As shown above, I had to learn what dichotomy meant!!!!!. I’m not a motivational speaker or even a philosopher.
