Come, enjoy unlimited freedom and independence. Experience the pure joy of living and utter well-being.
Statements like these in advertisements, while falsely promising a phenomenal joie de vivre through the use of, for example, alcohol or tobacco, nevertheless may awaken the desire to experience genuine freedom. And such liberty is not beyond our reach.
The Gospel of John tells of a man who may well have often thought, "Oh, if only I could move freely and easily" (see 5:2–9). At the pool of Bethesda, after an illness of thirty-eight years, he is asked by Christ Jesus whether he wants to get well. But he replies only that he has no one to put him into the allegedly healing waters at the right moment.
