Freedom in Christ
The Apostle Paul wrote about “freedom in Christ,” a contradiction in terms for many people, who see Christianity as restrictive, the stuff of mind control cults, and, as Karl Marx said, “the opiate of the masses.” What should the term mean to Christians? How do Christians explain it to those who want to know?

For Further Consideration
We have another presentation about Freedom in Christ, it’s a part of our series on True Spirituality. Check it out here.
Here are 27 verses from the Bible on Christian freedom.
We’ve been working on a series called mental Health and the Bible. We just finished two parts of the series on mind control and the tendency for some people to surrender their will to others who are sometimes abusive and controlling. Today we are stepping out of that series to focus on the Christian way of preventing that kind of abusive mind control. The Title is Freedom in Christ.
Would you not agree with me that to really understand the Bible, we need to know the social context that the writer was writing in? Very important, isn’t it? You can’t just jerk something out of its context and not understand what was going on when he wrote it – especially true in the time of the New Testament, I think.
