Living in freedom is a dangerous thing. There are people out there who abuse our freedom by committing countless acts of violence against themselves and the rest of society. This is a necessary evil. The opposite is a solitary confinement, where freedom is not allowed, and that's the only way to insure a safe environment from others.
But God wants us to be free. When He place Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, freedom was part of the deal. They had the option of choice, represented by the tree of forbidden fruit. You see Eden was paradise, and everything was perfect. Part of that perfection included freedom. God could have preserved Adam and Eve in the paradise by not granting them freedom of choice, but then they could have been considered prisoners. So part of perfection is freedom.
So when someone tries to restrict your freedom by offering you a safe environment, know that your moving closer to the imprisonment of solitude, because that is the only way you'll be safe from others. When another tries to convince you to trade off your freedom for security, know that is not God's will, and as Jesus said, "He who is not with me is against me." Matthew 12:30
Guard you freedom my friends! It's under assault everyday!
