What Does the Bible Say About Freedom?

Jesus therefore was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you abide in my word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”  They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s offspring; and have never been enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say, ‘You shall become free’?”  Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.  And the slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever.  If therefore the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.” (John 8:31-36).

The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and of death. (Romans 8:2).

You, my brothers, were called to be free.  But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. (Galatians 5:13, NIV).

Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God. (1 Peter 2:16).
