2 Peter 2-3

(August 29, 2013)
If there was a competition to determine the single greatest lie which we are tempted to believe, it is this – that sin is equivalent to liberty.  We have been given our moral agency, and we have been instructed to carefully and jealously defend it.  It is to be given to only One, and by so committing our agency to Him that freedom is magnified and enlarged.  If, on the other hand, we attempt to exploit our agency for our own carnal desire (the ‘freedom’ spoke of by the world), we will find ourselves enslaved rather than set free.
