Freedom

by Norman P. Grubb

Freedom is never being anything. That is a kind of LSD delusion which runs us into nothingness. Freedom is the necessity of choice, for we are only consciously free because we stand between alternatives and have to choose, and such choice makes us captive to our choice. So the eternal issue is presented to us Ė is freedom choosing self-interest and the bondage of self-gratification or is freedom choosing with Godís other-interest and the bondage of other-love: and we find that heaven, for it is God.
