TOPIC: DESTRUCTIVE FREEDOM
Read: Proverbs 14:12
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32
There is a great level of ‘rights’ awareness among young people today, which gives them the impression that they have the freedom to do anything they so desire. In countries where democracy is practised as a system of government, people are empowered to freely express their views and fight for their rights. I totally support this because no one should be under bondage as fundamental human rights should be respected.
However, there will be issues when these rights are overly expressed. For instance, in some countries, same-sex marriage is acceptable by law, abortion after getting an unwanted pregnancy from an illicit act is not against the law, the use of hard drugs like weed is also not prohibited. These are examples of destructive freedom in the world today. Many Christians are fighting against the truth of the Bible by asking for freedom to practise whatever is convenient for them, whereas, these will further lead them into captivity and destruction.
Just as God created the eyelids to protect the eyeballs, so has He placed certain measures in His word and people around you – the apple of His eyes, to protect you. He does not want you to get involved in anything that could destroy. If your country permits a lifestyle that is against His word, stand your ground and be different.
Identify things that could bring destructive freedom and avoid them.
