Caution on Freedom
Being religious are subsequently become moral. However, the Christian perspective is: “the power which enslaves is sin” (John 8:34). “It is contained in the possession of holiness, with the will and ability to do what is right and good. Such liberty is possible only in a renewed condition of soul, and cannot exist apart from godliness. Christians are earnestly warned not to presume upon, or abuse their liberty in Christ (Gal 5:13; 1 Pet 2:16).”66
The Apostle Peter warns about a false freedom, in 2 Pet 2:19 suggest, “that a false freedom can lead to corruption and bondage.”67 Christian liberty is not simply freedom from anything as many people think, not license to “do as you like”; rather, it is so complete surrender to God as to be called “slavery” to God, righteousness (Rom 6:18, 22).68
“The condition of freedom from bondage to the created is therefore bondage to the Creator.”69 The Creator is God, He is a symbol of perfection. On the other hand, the consequence of disobedience will be the loss of freedom.
Incase of non-Christians, cautiousness or self-discipline will be limited, and they may be allowed and leaded more to self-desire and luxury things. Furthermore secular people have a perspective on freedom as lose of control from everything
including self-control, just for fun, and irresponsibleness. And they are lesser cautious in self-discipline related to morals.
But the Christian seem more conservative on self-control, since the Bible strongly encourages self-control. Christians are encouraged to maintain human morals and human dignities.
