Spiritual Freedom

Many centuries ago, a comparatively small group of people were told that to know the truth was to be free. The great Teacher who uttered the simple, yet profound words, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32), had been born of a race that had experienced captivity at the hands of its enemies and was at the time under the government of imperial Rome. Yet his words bore a far greater significance than the promise of political or physical freedom.

Through spiritual discernment Jesus saw that humanity was in bondage to its belief in the power of sin with its attendant suffering. He knew that God had created man free—the perfect expression of spiritual freedom and supremacy—and, being conscious of this truth about man, he knew no bondage for himself or for others.
