Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17
Freedom doesn’t exist in a vacuum, a hollow airless space. Freedom exists in the presence of the Lord. Freedom exists in His Spirit, living, abiding there in harmony with creation.
Freedom has a price. The blood and battles our forefathers fought are no different than what we face presently. As always, the war is between good and evil. And it is when we return to ‘good’ in the sense of righteousness, as opposed to ‘good’ in the sense of nice or whatever is socially acceptable, that we make our stance against evil. Yet if we persist in the current cultural stance, where ‘good’ is neighborly or nice and love has no moral component, we are only aiding and abetting the enemy. We only give evil ammunition to pull us further away from Jesus and the freedom He died to give us. We, in essence, await destruction.
Not destruction at our own hands, but destruction through our own hearts.
Please pray for our country. Not simply to return to a right morality or to recover financially. If we fail to address the underlying issue, as done repeatedly over the last years, even in the wake of 2001, we are only postponing the inevitable – the loss of freedom, the attraction and wonder that is America.
