Freedom to be yourself is wasted if you are starving and homeless.
Sure , making sure that your children have the freedom to be themselves.
As long as it doesn't involve impossing your will onto others.
That is a very important freedom.
Hmm probably something out there, but I would say the freedom to be anything you want yourself to be in order to be yourself. Of course, you can only be yourself if you know who you are.haha
no problem :]
Freedom to live the life God created for you from the very beginning.
My point is this: God created you in His image and likeness, which means, He created your heart as well as your skin. It's true that He created you unique from everyone else. There is no one like you anywhere. There is no sin in God and therefore, He never created sin in us. The sinful nature came after the fall of man. When we sin, we act out of character that God created in us. When we do not sin, then we act in the character that God has created in us. We are slaves to the sinful nature until we invite Christ into our hearts and allow Him to free us from the slavery of the sinful nature.
That is a good question to ask God. I do not know where sin originated from. All I know that it dwells here in our fallen nature and that we can be set free from it by receiving Christ into our hearts and allow him to work in us to become the men and women He created us to be from the beginning. Does this make us perfect? Of course not. We will never be perfect in this fallen world of ours but we will be forgiven of all our sins and work with Christ to live as righteous men and women in this world.
I did not create God, He created me. I have no say in what He is or what He isn't. You are not alone in trying to make sense of it all. Nobody can. There is one thing about Him I know makes sense; God keeps His promises and is more than able to keep His word. He has promised those who diligently seek Him to reveal Himself to them. So, diligently seek His face and the answers to your questions will start to fall into place. Those are His promises to you, mot mine.
God gave you the freedom to believe what you wish and the responsibility to believe in the truth rather than the lie. Be sure what you're believing is the actual truth.
Sharing it with someone...
That's the one thing that I miss.
