What is freedom?

by Terry on July 6, 2020

The USA recently celebrated its 244th year of independence from Great Britain after fighting a revolutionary war with Englan. You might ask 100 people that and maybe a couple might know what’s true about one or both of those statistics. However, how that decision has affected them personally maybe 5 in a 100 might have something to share.

As a Christian freedom & independence are quite different. Jesus was asked before the Roman governor the question, What is truth?? (John 18). Earlier in other conversations with the Jewish community he stated in (John 8) that the truth would set you free (in other words, it would give you freedom and a sense of independence). Lastly in (John 10:10) Jesus stated very clearly that he is the way the truth and the life. No one can access Father Jehovah God (John 14:6) without Jesus.

Why is truth so essential?

If what we believe determines our mind set what I believe, if not truth, will lead me into error and a false world view. That’s why SOR Mission is determined to share truth to the poor and under privileged of this world. Jesus said in Luke 4:18 that the gospel was sent to the poor and not to the rich and arrogant who think money is their only power and that poverty is their problem and not theirs.

These are the wonderful people we work with to help give home and a brighter future for them and their children.

Continuing to help during times of Covid-19 where so many are out of work and do not access to a food pantry or a freezer because they are the poorest of the poor. Those Jesus came to tell the good news to. We are honoured to call them friends.
