I’ve been thinking lately about the phrase “Freedom in Christ.”
In the context of Jesus’ teachings it makes sense. He came and turned everything upside down.
He ate with sinners and tax collectors.
He said the first shall be last, the meek shall be strong… and a lot more.
He told the religious elite that their “religiousness” had gone too far.
He gave people freedom. Freedom to be more.
It’s pretty amazing.
Now, if you look at the phrase “Freedom in Christ” in the context of how we Christians portray Christ today it doesn’t make any sense.
Have we forgotten?
