Something about freedom scares us to death. We continue in our bondage – and that is a major tragedy. It is a tragedy because Christ went to so much trouble to set us free. It is a tragedy because there is so much more to being a Christian than obeying rules, doing religious things, and being “nice.” And it is a tragedy because our heritage is freedom…and we’ve sold it for a mess of pottage.
