From Bondage to the Desert – How to Prepare for Freedom – 7

7. The Danger of Unrealistic Hopes

The greatest enemy of the church’s ability to function under freedom is the entertaining of false and unrealistic ideas about freedom and democracy, seen as a universal panacea, a cure for all diseases.

Freedom brings with it great responsibilities and involves a cost that must be counted and accepted before we can be in a position to enjoy its benefits.

Those who entertain false hopes will be utterly disappointed. We, as Christians, should know better than that.
