St. Paul stated, “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1)
The Christian who knows what the Bible says is free from the bondage that comes with biblical illiteracy. Knowledge of Scripture sets us free from chains of guilt that ALWAYS accompanies a poorly formed conscience, poorly formed because of ignorance of God’s word.
Why do you think Satan feeds nuanced lies to those in the church pews about the alleged dangers of reading the Bible for oneself? Why do you think the devil tells us the scriptures can only be understood by the clergy?
He tells us those things to keep Christians in chains, in slavery to his poisonous deceptions.
Christian, and those of you who fear God, it's time to enter the joyful freedom of those who love God’s word, who study God’s word, who KNOW God’s word.
It was for freedom that Christ set us free!
