And that's also what Jesus, the apostles, and Paul all meant by the freedom of a Christian. It's the freedom to serve. The freedom of not fearing your neighbors or enemies, but instead loving them and serving them.
There's always been a shortage of that kind of freedom, but I suspect it's at an unusually low point right now in our society.
I saw a new word yesterday, "angertainment," the use of anger to entertain people. It seems a sad but apt descriptive word for our society.
Again, a good meditation for advent, leading up to the Deliverer's birth.
