BIBLICAL STUDIES about FREEDOM

 

1- The Freedom of Forgiveness :

Do you want to live in SLAVERY of bitterness or in FREEDOM of forgiveness ?

 

« FORGIVENESS is the key which unlocks spite's door and which unlocks hate's chain. FORGIVENESS is a Power which breaks down bitterness's chain » [ Corrie Ten Boom ; a person who has survived from concentration camp ] - ( The Good Seed 2012 )

 

 

 

2- Let's again talk about freedom :

« I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the Kingdom of heaven » ( Jesus Christ - Matthew 18 : 3 )

 

Man thinks that he's FREE. At the beginning, man has got from God all things which make him happy. But man has losen this happiness. And he says that the responsible is his neighbors, or the society, or the daily problems, or ... God. He doesn't think that he has his own responsibility for his sorrows. Man thinks that he is FREE but he is a prisoner of his passions.


Man looks for good in the pleasure while he has to search his pleasure in good. Man thinks that God is not a friend but an enemy. So his point of view becomes false and it breaks down his desire. The solution is our conversion. We must accept that our morality is wrong and that we need God to change it. We must accept that we can't change ourselves our nature so we need Jesus for our regeneration. So the lost child will find again his family, the guilty will go back to his Saviour, the desperate man will need help from his Creator. Conversion breaks down man's pride but it opens the right way to God ( The Good Seed 2002 )
