Spiritual Freedom

Spiritual Freedom

"Having broken away from our local Church we are here free to do something with our faith, to look at it honestly, to look at other Churches. Will your old beliefs be adequate to answer to your needs?" asked Mr Murray.

"Again, withdrawal is not the answer to difficulties. Doubts should be faced up to honestly. Go and see someone who has shared the same experience!"

"Freedom," reiterated Mr Murray, "is the right to grow. It does not mean we have no master, but may choose the best. For a Christian, in mind, body and soul the proper use of freedom is choosing God as the master, under whom we will grow up."

"Here we have the freedom to bring all our life into accord with the mind of Christ. This deeper freedom is not the freedom to choose our own way, but freedom from self," said Mr Murray.
