The extent to which this nation knows, loves, and obeys the truth, will be the extent of the freedom we will enjoy.
John 8:32 says, “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”
Freedom! Oh what a blessed word. Men, we must never take it for granted. We are so blessed to enjoy freedom which others have sacrificed and paid for with their own blood on the battlefields, both here and abroad. Therefore our freedom should not be abused, lightly esteemed, or lightly given over without a big fight.
When we do not honor God for the freedom and grace He has so lavishly bestowed upon us we become cold in heart towards truth and like Israel of old, we will forget God and God Himself will raise up enemies against us, both from within and without. I believe we are beginning to see this happen before our eyes.
Within, we have a government hell-bent on taking our liberties away from us. Despite all our freedoms, there is ever increasing violence in our public schools as well as the work place. It seems to me that to the degree that we as a nation forget God, to the same degree we will see insanity, violence, and chaos arise from within our own society.
Without, we have many enemies that hate us and are ever ready to strike us severely. The answer is for us as a nation to repent and to come back to loving the truth.
