Freedom or oppression?
We have long benefited from freedom of religion, in fact freedom of many things as Christians in this country.
When the church then goes above and beyond to take away, or oppress freedoms from other peoples they are really treading on a slippery slope from being sons to being dictators.
From Christlikeness to darkness.
Christ provides freedom. Even freedom to make foolish choices, as well as a freedom from foolish choices.
Darkness provides oppression. Darkness forces it's way into your choices, and imprisons you to them.
We cannot take attributes of darkness and cover them in sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows, and then call it good.
That's not the gospel, it is not the way of Jesus, and it never was.
