Biblical View of Freedom
The Apostle Paul describes Biblical freedom as “freedom from bondage from sin, death” (Rom. 6:18-23); from the “power of darkness” (Col. 1:13); from “polytheistic superstition” (I Cor. 10:29; Gal. 4:8); from “the law as a system of salvation” (Gal. 4:21 ff.; 5:1; Rom. 7:6) and from “the burden of Jewish ceremonialism” (Gal. 2:4).7
Paul said that bondage is universal, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory to God” (Rom. 3:23). But “Christ has set free from human bondage.”8 The Christian who has his political and social freedom is enslaved to Christ and the Christian slave is free in Christ. In Romans 6:18, the Christian is declared “freed from the slavery of sin by Christ’s death.”9
For example, in the second coming of Christ, the Christians will be given a glorious freedom from the effects of sin (Rom. 8:21). The New Heaven and New Earth is a final redemption from the domination of sin, man’s ultimate destiny.
As well as, Jesus speaks of the “regeneration” of the world (Matt. 19:28), and Peter states the “restoration of all things” (Acts 3:21). Also, Paul stated that the universe will be redeemed by God from its current state of bondage (Acts 3:21).10
